Thursday 20 October 17:30 – Family and Private Law in Sweden

We’re often asked questions by international citizens living in Sweden about specific legal matters so we are pleased to re-run this event in collaboration with a local firm, Nerle Jonsson Lindeblad Advokatbyrå.

Johanna Lindeblad and Per Nerle will present their company and talk about situations that affect international citizens living here, such as divorce, custody, employment, residence rights, bereavement, and inheritance. What happens, for example, if you lose your job or decide to divorce?

You are welcome to send questions in advance, which we will forward to Johanna and Per. They will do their best to cover as many as possible during the time we have. Please email sally@hiconnections.eu. There will also be a Question and Answer session after the presentation.

Tuesday 14 June 09:00 – Attracting and Retaining International Talent in Helsingborg

How can businesses in North-West Skåne support their international talent? How do we make sure that employers offer the best possible conditions for talent and their families? How can public and private actors collaborate? Why is a support system even necessary?

We invite employers, recruiters, and municipal representatives to a morning of presentations, discussions, and networking at Open22. Your host, Sally Russell of Helsingborg International Connections, will talk about HIC’s work in welcoming and supporting international talents in the Helsingborg area and examine how public and private partnerships can boost talent attraction and retention.

We’ll discuss how initiatives such as HIC create value for employers, while reducing isolation and loneliness, promoting good health and well-being, and building sustainable cities and communities. Our guest speakers will include expats and public and private actors who will shine a light on these essential but often overlooked topics.

This event has been arranged in collaboration with H22 City Expo, Open 22 at Mindpark, and Helsingborg Municipality.
