Reviews of specialists who moved to Norway and Sweden

Today’s reviews of our candidates are brought by two specialists who moved to Norway and Sweden and settled in their new countries about a year and a half ago. If the reviews of Marko and Dijana encourage you to think more actively about relocating, contact us and we will talk about the opportunities that are the best for you 🙂

Marko – Norway – gastroenterologist

The first time I got in touch with your agency was at the Careers in White fair in Zagreb, which is where I applied to several agencies but Zrinka had the fastest answer and a concrete offer. You connected me with your partners in Norway and it all happened pretty quickly. Filling out the paperwork and the CV was a bit dull, but that’s also an important part that plays a role in applying to the competition.

Norway was my first and only choice, other countries simply did not interest me. I have been here for about a year and a half now and I can say that this country has definitely met all my expectations. I liked the hospital from the beginning and I like the extent of work that is given here. It allows me to devote myself to the patient much better than it was the case previously. People and colleagues are wonderful and full of understanding, both in the hospital and in their spare time.

During the interview, I mentioned to the employer that I definitely plan to move to Norway, regardless of their specific offer. They supported me and I even came to Norway earlier than expected and continued to learn and improve my language here. They slowly introduced me to working with patients, which also helped my language a lot.

The relocation process also went without major problems, and I had no doubts when I came here. Of course, it is hard and difficult to come to a new country and a different culture, but when you have a clear goal you are quite prepared for potential obstacles and you can quickly adapt to any situation.

Dijana – Sweden

After a year and a half of already being in Sweden, I can say that I am more or less satisfied with everything. Every institution, including here in Sweden, has problems in the organization of work, but it is far from the problems we encounter in Croatia. Employers and workers are working much harder to improve their work, but there are still situations where there are not enough employees to keep things going.

Everything was great and right during the communication and organization with you and your partners in Sweden. The Swedish language course was very exhausting, but all the teachers are excellent and the entire school is great for that matter. The employer also provided everything as we agreed and previously communicated, and after my arrival and the start of work, everyone tried very hard to provide support. Whether it was the approach in the workplace, accommodation for me and my family and anything else you need to cope in a new environment or the friendly support and advice which hobbies and activities are available in the area.

Impressions of our candidates in Ireland and Denmark

The new group of reviews brings you the experiences of our candidates who have been in new countries for a lengthy time, so they have already gained certain experiences and habits in new cultures. If their experience encourages you to think more about leaving, reach to us via the contact details and we will be happy to provide you with any additional information you need 🙂


Donald Stojnić – Ireland – psychiatrist

Ireland has a somewhat specific health system that suits me. I have been here for some time, I recently got a new contract and I am satisfied with the professionalism and the way the profession is approached here.

I came into contact with you for the first time through the Careers in White fair in Zagreb, and I received my first offer shortly afterwards. In communication, everything went as it should. There were no delays, and in arranging employment, everything is procedural and following how such things are resolved. Securing accommodation is the only complaint that was a bit tiring for me considering that I was looking for accommodation on my own, but everything else was tip-top.

Getting used to the new culture is a somewhat longer process, which is unfortunately slowed down at the moment, but all this is expected when you move to a new country and a new job, and the support of colleagues helps a lot in this area.

Vladimira – Denmark – oncologist

The first idea to leave appeared when our acquaintances moved to Scandinavia. Then we started to think a little more actively about the balance of life and work and about the possibilities that other countries offer to doctors in relation to what we had in Croatia.

Now (in the summer of 2020) we have been in Denmark for 16 months and in the beginning, we had to look for a lot on our own in order to cope better and adapt. I have to say that some things definitely caught us off guard and didn’t really suit us, like the information that you can’t just open up sick leave if your child gets sick, but you have to find someone to take care of the child. Danish culture is also promoted in foreign kindergartens, so that children get acquainted with things that are not so common in our country, and are normal and common here.

In terms of work, the situation is much better and it is much easier to work than in Croatia – there is not so much influx of patients and the system is more organized. The people in the hospital, and Denmark in general, are polite and approachable and will help and advise you when you ask them and when you need something.

In the process, we had a lot of help with organizing and communicating what we needed. The language course depends a lot on yourself and on how hard a person tries to learn a new language, but in the meantime, I can say that we have perfected Danish.
