Nordjobb is a Nordic exchange programme that offers young people summer jobs in the Nordic countries. Nordjobb also provides its applicants with accommodation during their stay, and organizes culture- and leisure activities. The programme was first initiated in 1985, and has since provided summer jobs for about 25.000 applicants.[1] Nordjobb is a nonprofit project; the main financiers are the Nordic Council of Ministers and Foreningen Norden. Nordjobb has offices in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland and the self-governing area of Åland. The programmes on the Faroe Islands and Greenland are currently administered from the headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark.


Before 2010, Nordjobb only accepted applications from the 5 Nordic countries (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Finland). In 2010 a side project called Nordjobb Europa was launched, and since then, applications from within the European Union are also accepted. All applicants must be between 18 and 28 years of age, and have knowledge in a Scandinavian language.[2][3]
