Exploring the Benefits of Bemanning for Medical Professionals in Scandinavia

The healthcare sectors in Sweden, Denmark, and Norway are increasingly relying on bemanning (temporary staffing) to address staffing shortages and to provide flexible work options for medical professionals.

This arrangement has become particularly popular among doctors and nurses, who often choose to work as hyrläkare (locum doctors) or vikarie (substitute nurses). These roles offer a plethora of benefits that can enhance both professional and personal life.

The Flexible World of Bemanning: Insights from Scandinavian
Professionals

Dr. Ivana Peric, a locum in Sweden, shares her experience: “Working as a locum doctor allows me to control my schedule and explore different medical practices without committing to a permanent position. This flexibility has been invaluable for balancing my
professional development with personal commitments.”

Similarly, nurse Ingrid Petterson from Norway finds the setup highly beneficial: “I appreciate the chance to work in varied healthcare settings; it broadens my experience and keeps my daily routine exciting and challenging.”

Advantages of Bemanning Roles

1. Competitive Hourly Wages

Locum doctors and substitute nurses often enjoy higher hourly rates compared to their permanently employed counterparts. This compensates for the lack of traditional job benefits like pension plans and paid leave.

2. Enhanced Flexibility

One of the most significant advantages is the flexibility in work hours and vacation planning. Professionals can choose when and where they work, allowing for a better work-life balance. They can also choose to live anywhere in the world and then come to Sweden, Norway, and Denmark working the weeks they choose.

For example, dr. Kruwalski, who is a specialist in Emergency medicine, works 6 months locum while the other 6 months he chooses to spend in Australia each year surfing.

3. Diverse Working Environments

Working in various healthcare settings not only breaks the monotony but also enhances skills and knowledge through diverse clinical challenges.

4. Career Development

Temporary assignments can lead to permanent positions, offering career growth opportunities without long-term commitments.

5. Control Over Workload

Doctors and nurses can control their workload, choosing part-time or full-time hours, which is ideal for those wanting to reduce stress and manage personal responsibilities.

6. Networking Opportunities

Working in multiple locations increases professional contacts and can open doors to new job opportunities within the healthcare industry.

Combining Permanent and Bemanning Positions

Many professionals opt to split their time between permanent and bemanning roles. Dr. Erik Svensson from Denmark explains: “Working 50% as a fastanställd (permanent staff) and 50% as bemanning allows me to enjoy the security of a steady job while also taking advantage of the higher pay and flexibility of locum work.”

This hybrid model offers a balanced approach, providing stable income and benefits while retaining the flexibility to pursue other professional or personal interests.

The Full-Time Bemanning Experience

For some, transitioning to 100% bemanning roles is the ultimate career move. Nurse Sofia Karlsson remarks, “Full-time locum work has given me unprecedented freedom to travel and work across Scandinavia, which was impossible in a full-time permanent position.”

Ready to elevate your career and life with flexibility and better pay? Why not start today?

If you’re a healthcare professional seeking greater flexibility, diversity in your work environment, and potentially higher earnings, consider the bemanning route.

Scandinavian Healthcare Systems

Scandinavian healthcare systems are known as one of the highest-quality systems in the world. We will mention only a few facts that support that belief:

💰 The healthcare system is almost completely financed publicly through taxes in all three countries.

🙂 The patients are usually extremely satisfied with the medical services. In 2018, 85% of people in Norway, 84% of people in Denmark, and 79% of people in Sweden said they were satisfied.

🧑‍🤝‍🧑 Scandinavian healthcare systems are based on the principle of universalism, which is committed to equal access to medical services for all – regardless of their social class, place of residence, or income.

💪 Lastly, their healthcare systems are also one of the most successful ones in the world based on a number of factors – from administrative efficiency and affordability to the quality of care. Norway is, for example, in the 1st place in the world, while Sweden is in the 7th.

You, too, can become a part of these high-quality systems with Incor!

  • Radiographers – four open positions
  • Psychiatry specialists – two open positions
  • Family medicine specialists – four open positions

Why Sweden?

Sweden is a rich country where everyone can find opportunities for themselves. It boasts a high living standard, a perfect balance between the private and professional life, and a superior education system.

Healthcare workers are encouraged to attend trainings financed by employers. The 40-hour workweek is the norm, but every workday also includes so-called fika pauses — at least one, and usually two. These are coffee breaks, which you can spend alone or with your colleagues. Besides this benefit, you can also expect better pay than in many European countries and frequent opportunities for bonuses.

“Sweden (…) takes care of the people who work and live here, appreciates them, invests in them,” concludes one of our candidates who moved to Sweden himself.

How can we help you? If you’re interested in a position in Sweden, we can help you with the entire relocation and application process, including:

Why Norway?

Just like Sweden, Norway is a rich and stable country that offers its workers excellent pay and many opportunities for bonuses. The 40-hour workweek is the norm here as well, but fika pauses are becoming quite common here, too. Norwegians are also among the best English speakers in the world, so you should have no issues with communication even if you don’t speak Norwegian.

Additionally, this Scandinavian country boasts exceptionally low crime rates and breathtaking landscapes. That’s precisely why many Norwegians spend the majority of their free time outdoors, and you can do the same.

Austrian opportunities – jobs for specialists in October

Austria is the second most livable country in the world, right after Finland. It has a high standard of living, a good healthcare system, high-quality air, and is generally safe. With that in mind, you’ll surely be delighted to hear that we have new jobs for specialists in this country. Discover them below.

Hallstatt, Austrija
Let’s not forget that Austria, of course, also has an abundance of natural and cultural beauties.

According to the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, the Austrian healthcare system has nearly universal coverage, generally good accessibility of services, and comprehensive financial protection for vulnerable groups. Its structure is similar to the Croatian healthcare system in many ways. For example, citizens who meet certain criteria have the right to basic health insurance that covers most of their expenses. However, the Austrian healthcare system is still of significantly higher quality, more advanced, and more modern than its Croatian counterpart.

For example, Martina, a doctor of radiology, says that Austria offers better working conditions and easier access to better equipment for doctors. The intention is to make work as easy as it can be for employees. A radiologist will, as an example, do only radiology work and nothing else.

If that sounds good and you’re considering moving to Austria yourself, this is a great month for you! In October, we have offers from Austria for specialists. Incor can help you get any of these jobs and move to Austria without stress.

  • Radiology specialists

Besides what we mentioned above, all future employees will get accommodation within the hospital grounds, excellent salaries and salary bonuses, a right to get a pension in Austria, additional education and training, help with obtaining a work license in Austria, and everything else needed to relocate to another country.

Our team is available for all questions and helping you organize both your professional and private life in Austria.

Application Requirements

You’ll need to fulfill the following obligatory requirements when applying to any of the aforementioned positions:

  • ☑️ You need to come from an EU country.
  • ☑️ You need to speak German at a B2 or C1 level.
  • ☑️ You need to specialize in one of the above-mentioned branches of medicine.
