We are your local partner when placing consultants in Denmark, Sweden and Norway.
You find the right candidate - We handle the employment.

Fulfilling and documenting local compliance has never received more attention. Rules and legislation changes constantly as well as each consultant’s personal circumstances. When you partner up with GTS Nordic, you can leave all the local handling such as tax registration, social security, work permits and VISA to us.

GTS Nordic Employed solution

With a GTS Nordic employed solution, you and your consultant are in safe hands throughout the whole assignment as the overall tax liability will be moved to the employer – GTS Nordic. Once the consultant is fully registered, we issue the Compliance Certificate, documenting that the consultant’s tax liability is no longer a potential risk for the end client. This Compliance Certificate is a valuable tool for the end client, in order to document that you and the consultant are being managed in a professional matter.

Not a recruitment agency

GTS Nordic is not a recruitment agency, and we do not facilitate the search of foreign talent.

GTS Nordic takes over when you have located the right candidate. Based on the conditions agreed to by you and the consultant, we take you through the implications of working in Scandinavia, ensuring that circumstances such as work permits, EU registration, tax matters, etc. are made clear, and everyone involved are aware of the possible consequences.

Fast Track Certification

Pre-approved work permits.

GTS Nordic is fast track certified, which means that we can pre-approve work permits for non-EU citizens, enabling the consultant to start work almost as swiftly as a local applicant. Consequently, you will have greater opportunities to hire the top candidate for any given assignment – without factoring in nationality or worrying about the timeframe.

If your consultant is a non-EU passport holder it is required to obtain a valid work permit when contracting and working in the Nordics for an end client. 

As a part of our payroll and management services, we can sponsor work and residence permits as well as Business Visas for non-EU passport holders.

Working in the Nordics without a valid work permit can lead to substantial penalties and fines for the end client as well as deportation for the consultant – GTS Nordic will be your guarantee for a professional handling.

Airport walk

Your local partner

We are pleased to assist in every aspect of the immigration process including:

Work and residence permits

To qualify for a work permit, your client must have received an official offer of employment from a Danish, Swedish or Norwegian employer.

Business Visa

We can assist with any global business visa. A business visa is solely for business relations and meetings which have no involvement in anything considered labor.

Family residence permits

Once the work permit has been approved, a family permit can be applied for. As long as the family adhere to the conditions set by the local Immigrations, they may stay with your client during the entire duration of the contract.

Mandatory insurance

If required we can offer consultants on employed solutions to be covered by GTS Nordic's Public Liability, Personal Indemnity Insurance and/or Compulsory Industrial Injury insurance.
