Thursday 7 April 16:00 – Webinar: The Swedish Pension System

How does the Swedish pension system work? How do I earn my pension? What life choices affect my pension? What happens to my pension if I move from Sweden?

Wednesday 16 March 19:00 – HIC Volunteer Group Meeting

Would you like to be part of a community supporting internationals in Helsingborg?

We’re looking for volunteers and invite you to a kick-off meeting in March!

Volunteering is a perfect way of getting to know new people and expanding your network, which is essential when you move to a new country. Volunteers benefit from the companionship and sense of satisfaction found in shared activities, while bringing a unique perspective, different skills, and new ideas to the group. Volunteering is also a great way of showcasing your skillset and adding to your experience in Sweden, very important for your CV!

We’ve had a wonderful pool of volunteers to call on and as we come out of the pandemic, we’re looking to re-establish our volunteer group to help us plan ahead. With you on board, we can reach more internationals and make sure that we’re providing the activities that you want to see.

How can you help? We need:

  • Event researchers and planners
  • Event helpers
  • Photographers and videographers
  • Social media designers and contributors
  • Anything else? Tell us about your cool skill or idea!

Would you like to be part of our volunteer group? Please sign up on the link below to join us at the kick-off meeting.

Address: Näringslivs-och destinationsutveckling office, Drottninggatan 7A, 252 21 Helsingborg (upstairs)

During our events, we sometimes take photographs and short videos to share on the HIC website and social media. If you prefer not to be in any photos or videos, please let us know at the beginning of the event. Thank you!
