Internship in Sweden
The goal with internship is that the person on the internship program learn as much as possible about the Swedish adventure, outdoor and ecotourism. Trainees on the internship program will follow the daily work and work together with the staff at Nordic Discovery. The trainee then gains practical knowledge as well as on-the-job instruction from the ordinary staff. There is the possibility of discounted accommodation in a self-catering cottage. Internship certificate will be provided, and there is a chance of future employment if the trainee proves to be suitable. No experience needed, but a driving license is required.
Internship - Working tasks
The work is very varied as the spectra of outdoor activities Nordic Discovery offer is broad. We work on a daily basis after bookings. The different bookings each day will affect what we will be doing to make each booking happen.

Volunteer work in Sweden
The idea with the volunteer agreement is to give the volunteer a chance to stay and learn about Sweden and get the opportunity to do a lot of outdoor activities in return for work. The volunteer work program is between 1 day and 6 months and is based on benefits which increase on a time scale. The program starts with accommodation in self-catering cottage and access to outdoor equipment and ends with all living costs included and paid travel expenses. No experience needed.
Volunteer workers staying for more than 2 weeks will receive a written documentation of their stay, with the CEO of Nordic Discovery as a reference person. Something which has proved to be very appreciated by employers due to the fact that the document prove the volunteer worker’s guts and ambition to travel to an another country and help out and learn with other priorities than earning a salary. The document has proved to be crucial to young volunteers applying for their first job.
