Hey, anyone around from Östersund? I've just moved here to be with my partner and am currently only an English speaker - it's proving very difficult to get even the most basic of job.. and I'm willing to do anything, any advice greatly appreciated!

I've been through this with non-English speaking friends in Östersund before- unless you get lucky with a tourist oriented business, you are not going to have much success without Swedish. You are going to have to learn the language as fast as possible. Easier said than done, but it is the only way. Do you have a talent that is particularly marketable?

My husband is from there (we go there every summer too) and he said to tell you "Go in to any restaurant and apply. That is where you are most likely to find work."

Good luck! smile.gif

I don't what your background is but a friend of mine moved up there - she has found a variety of English teaching jobs - but often only a few hours. Or there is restaurant work especially in the tourist season
