Abstract [en]

Integration of the labor is becoming increasingly topical, with increasing immigration. Labour market integration has been proved to be problematic, partly due to linguistic and cultural differences between the migrant's home country and Sweden. Difficulties with labour market integration have resulted in high numbers of unemployment and dependence on social welfare. Projects VIAM is an employment project conducted by Folkhälsobyrån AB in Västerås, aimed at finding jobs for welfare dependency immigrants. The purpose of this study is to investigate how the informants on Folkhälsobyrån and administrators on the Social service in Västerås has experienced the work of the project VIAM, development issues and the informant´s and administrator´s perception of factors that are influencing immigrant´s employment situation in Västerås. The study was conducted by interviewing four informants and two administrators. The results showed that the respondents had positive experiences of the project. The relationship with the clients was generally good, and was affected both by the client's background and motivation, and of the informant's own experiences. The administrators on the Social service were affected by the project mainly through the workload and contact with Folkhälsobyrån. Respondents put forward various proposals for development, and identified issues that affect immigrants' work situation.
