Hi people,

After working as a consultant in the last couple of months in Gothenburg I have the opportunity to go become permanent.
I was in a what a think a not bad rate of 690SEK per hour. Unfortunately I don't know what to expect as a permanent salary.
The position would be for a technical manager position typically could be said as niche...
Could someone one shine a light what sort of salary should be expected?

I'd knock 25% off what it would be in the UK.

But you might be able to negotiate the difference as pension contributions as it is tax beneficial to them.

Hi

A Salary of 60000/month (assuming before taxes) appears to be low when compared to UK! Plus Gothenburg its significantly more expensive than mostly of the UK.
Is this true???

Don't expect what you are getting now, contract rates are much higher than employed rates.

SEK 60,000/month is high for Göteborg in that sector.
The average is around SEK 45,000/month.

So you are not a real manager. I am not sure what you are saying by technical specialist. Is it powertrain, body in white, interior or paint. Is it product development, CAD or process etc.

Technical Specialist of an exterior feature - responsible for managing all the technical aspects of that feature (not a typical people manager).

This gets odder and odder, an exterior feature. Is that one part or paint, I am confused. To manage an exterior feature is strange or is it something new and top secret.

If it is a international company then their HR department will most likely have a salary matrix so that they cannot be accused of discrimination and you will get the salary that has been allocated to your job role. You can always check with Union - but they can only give you average figures.
