Why did Rusta and matcha start?

The Public Employment Service used to have the Rusta and matcha service, but this has now been replaced by the Rusta and matcha 2 (ROM2) service. The main focus of the new service is on matching and therefore we providers will have to work extra hard to tailor our coaching and activities to give you as a jobseeker the best possible chance of matching with a job. The ROM2 service is a reform from the Public Employment Service launched in 2020 and 2021. Since Sweden has the Act on Freedom of Choice Systems (LOV), you as a jobseeker have the right to choose the service provider.

How to choose the best supplier of Rusta and matcha?

To make sure you’re on the right track, and hopefully with us, we recommend you do a comparison. Check out different providers to see what they can offer you as a jobseeker.
