Our Scandinavia team provides services throughout Sweden, Norway, and Denmark.
As major organisations based in cities such as Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo build out their Technology and Analytics practices, the race for talent quickens. This is where Parallel excels. Our Nordics team are experts in their ability to identify, attract, retain and partner with the best local talent in the market.
Parallel has been successful delivering Permanent and Freelance talent solutions to our customers across Scandinavia since 2016, providing tailor-made solutions to meet your exact requirements.
We are proud of our highly trained, transparent and committed team of international advisors. These characteristics have enabled us to build long-term relationships that ensure we are the preferred recruitment partner for Start-ups and Scale-ups, through to Nordea, Scania and other international Global Brands.
It is expected that there will be 70,000 unfilled digital roles in Sweden by 2022. This accounts for 4% of the European digital skills shortage.
Sweden is one of the world's most innovative nations. With a large presence of start-ups, research and development institutions, numerous technology parks, and international software development companies in Sweden have all contributed to a very high demand for qualified IT professionals.
According to the Hays Global Skills Index 2019/20, Sweden is amongst the most pressured and intense labour markets. The talent shortage indicator has risen to the highest possible score of 10.0, which shows that the gap between the skills wanted by businesses and the skills available on the labour market is now at its greatest.
Our Scandinavia team is full of subject matter experts who are focused on creating meaningful partnerships with clients in the region.
We enable our partners to scale up and we connect them with a network filled with the most sought-after tech talent on the market.
Parallel’s Scandinavia team is comprised of consultants who each truly specialise in data, digital, software and analytics staffing. Each of our experts thoroughly understands the skills areas, the technologies, the tools, the environments and, most importantly, the individuals, of their niche specialism.

Parallel prides itself on our transparency and high-quality standards, constantly sharing our industry knowledge and the trends in the markets we operate in.
