There are plenty of plumbing jobs going but you do need a licence, the same goes for an electrician.

The only thing that i can recommend is going around the building sites in Gothenburg (they are building alot at the moment) and having a chat with the foreman there.

Good luck

ps try the Eriksberg area
pps. if you are qualified then plumbing is the job as there is a lack of them and they often must use Germans with pidgeon English to work for them

I understand that but its not a language to learn in a week .. ?

If you can learn to speak Swedish in one week, you are truly a genius. Most people take 2 - 3 years to gain fluency.

I ran into the same problem and didn't have enough money to float the boat for two years while I learned to speak Swedish, so I got a job with a moving company. Didn't need to speak Swedish to lift boxes.
