2:10 min

A new employment report brings good news for those wanting to become nurses, teachers, engineers or construction workers.

Those careers will be the most in demand here in the coming years, according to the Swedish Public Employment Service, Arbetsförmedlingen.

Håkan Gustavsson, the agency's head of forecasting, describes the Swedish economy as "booming", saying that every sector is searching for new staff.

But, he adds, some careers will be tougher to find work in than others. Namely areas like communications, design, the arts and even retail.
