How to apply

Log in or register to reach your pages and applications that you may have started earlier. If you choose to apply for the position through the vacancy notice you will automatically be registered as a new user. 

If you do not already have an account, you have two options:

  1. Create an account with the same email address as the one you used in the application. When you have done this, you can edit your application via the account according to the instructions above. This is the recommended option.
  2. Click “Apply” in the vacancy notice and fill in the same email address as the one used in your application, as well as all the other details. Your application will thereby be updated with that information.

A user account provides an overview

It is quick to create a user account. When you have an account, you no longer need to enter your personal details every time you want to submit an application. The account also offers an overview of your applications and any messages we have sent you via the system. The messages are also sent to your email address, so you don’t need to monitor your account.

You can also create an account at a later date. As long as you provide the same email address as the one used in the application, any previous information will appear on your account.

Updating your application

You can update your application as long as the application period has not run out. If you have an account, log in to it and click “Edit” next to the link for the relevant application and make the changes you want. Confirm the changes by clicking “Register”.

If you want to make changes to an attached document, update the document on your computer first. Then upload the new document. It will replace the old file. When you have uploaded the correct attachment, click “Register” and your application will be updated.

Keep your contact details up to date

In order to enable us to get in touch with you, it is important that you keep your contact details up to date. If you do not have an account, email any changes to the human resources officer responsible. If you have an account, log in to it and update your information. If you have changed email address, log in with the old address and register the new one.
