Relocating to Sweden
It might have occurred to you, once or twice, to pack up and just move abroad. But what is that experience actually like? Meet a few of our colleagues who have come from overseas, who have stepped off the plane and done their best to integrate here in Stockholm, at global HQ.
Why move to Stockholm?
It isn’t all about pickled herring, dark winters and ancient traditions; according to our international colleagues, Sweden is the place to be.
“I fell in love with Stockholm”
Taking chances and pushing your boundaries are ways to grow as a human being, and as a part of GANT.
Become a yes-person
Daring to challenge your perception, and having new experiences as a result, brings an entire new perspective to life. Listen to what our international colleagues here in Stockholm have to say about it.
What do others think about your move?
Your friends and family back home probably have a few questions. This might satisfy their curiosity a bit.
How did GANT help you get here?
We will do what we can to ease the hassle of the moving process.
Parental leave, healthcare and vacation
Get a picture of the Swedish way of living – unanimously popular with our international colleagues, it seems.
The best thing about moving
You’ll encounter various opinions on whether you should move to a far-off city, country or continent. But remember, for all the trouble of moving, there are always beautiful new things to discover once you’re there.
What do you miss from home?
For all the benefits involved in moving, you’ll doubtless miss something very specific from home. Our colleagues have a number of different answers…!
A smooth ride?
Inevitably, you will face some minor speed bumps along the road when you move. Stay open, and flexible, and you’ll be fine.
Your favorite Swedish word?
Some languages are harder to learn that others, and Swedish is definitely a tricky one. Watch to hear how our international colleagues are managing with this tongue-twisting lingo.
Fancy a ‘fika’?
Treat yourself to a strong coffee and all the cinnamon buns you can eat. ‘Fika’ is a mandatory part of the Swedish experience, and it’s best to just get on board.
You won’t be lonely
There will be countless questions and uncertainties that occur to you when packing your bags to start a life elsewhere. But here at GANT, we won’t leave you to the wolves.
