There are other specialised recruitment agencies, which are easy to find on Google. Just search the Swedish word for the area of expertise and write that in addition to the word "rekrytering".
Create match-mails from the mentioned websites that have that service.
Visit Company Websites to Find Open Positions
Searching for jobs via different job sites is one option, as mentioned above, but also directly on the websites of companies of interest. If a position of interest is found, then a CV should be submitted as quickly as possible. The CV can be constant, but a unique application letter for each position applied for is recommended, and should highlight the essential experience and criteria that match what they are looking for. Avoid sending generic application letters as this may be seen as lack of interest in the advertised position.
Register on LinkedIn
When looking for employment in Sweden, LinkedIn is an important site. LinkedIn helps by boosting visibility and allows creative personal marketing. The site also provides daily tips about interesting job opportunities in a given area. Connect to all business contacts, friends and acquaintances, update your status and let everyone know that you are available for new challenges, or send individual emails to people in your network and let them know you would be interested in hearing more about any opportunities that might arise. There is also the option to ask for references on LinkedIn. Register your CV on LinkedIn.
Please note that EURES is also on LinkedIn. Search for “EURES Sweden”, “EURES Sweden – Tech Group”, “Nurses for Sweden EURES Sweden” and "Life Science Specialists for the Öresund Region”, if any of these groups might be of interest.
When interested in coming onto the work market it is extremely important to network. One way to get valuable connections is to join a local Rotary club, e.g. Lund International Rotary Club and Malmö International Rotary Club.

Another is Toastermasters Europe @ Ideon, where, besides networking, there is the opportunity to improve spoken skills.

Additional Important Advice
Be open to positions that may be below current competency levels while learning Swedish. That way you will not feel completely exhausted learning a new language and getting adjusted to a new culture while you also push yourself to perform well, as you would have done in your home country.
If you do not intend to learn Swedish, apply for positions with larger companies in the region and also in Copenhagen (for EU-citizens).
There are classes you can take while waiting for the right opportunity. Please visit www.folkuniversitetet.se or www.medborgarskolan.se to see what paid classes they can offer. Or why not sign up for some free courses at one of the universities in Malmö or Lund? This is an excellent opportunity to meet new people, network and learn something new at the same time. More information and links can be found under the chapter “Studying in southern Sweden”.
Please remember that finding a new job can take time, and in itself be a full-time job, so do not give up!
Sweden has a 25% value added tax, or consumption tax, which is high from an international standpoint.
Taxes in Sweden
Collection of taxes is the duty of the Swedish Tax Agency. Taxes go to the state, the county councils and the municipalities, and are used to pay society’s expenses for things such as education, care, defence and public administration. Much of the tax is returned in the form of pensions and benefits of various kinds.
All employers deducts a tax before salaries are paid out. The salary slip shows how much incometax has been deducted. WeITglobal pays this amount of tax to the Swedish Tax Agency every month. At the same time, weITglobal pays in employer contributions for each employee (not seen on you salary slip). After having worked for at least 12 months, an income statement is issued at the beginning of the following year, the same information is sent to the Swedish Tax Agency who subsequently issue a self-assessment (tax return) form in the following February-April. The completed tax return has to be submitted to the Swedish Tax Agency no later than 2nd May. In the middle of June, or after the summer in certain cases, the Swedish Tax Agency will notify you of the result of the final calculation, and notify whether too little tax or too much tax has been paid - meaning either an additional payment is needed or a refund will be made.
‘Normal’ Swedish income tax
The income tax withdrawn by WeITglobal from your salary depends on the base salary and what municipality you live in.

Tax relief for foreign key personnel (‘Expert Tax’)
Foreign key personnel include scientists, researchers, technicians, specialists and others. One main criterion for qualifying for the tax relief on these grounds is that Swedish citizens with the foreigner's skills or talents are impossible or extremely difficult to recruit in Sweden.
The main feature of Sweden's tax relief legislation provides a 25% reduction of taxable income for foreign key personnel. This means that a key foreign individual's income tax will be based on only 75% of their income.
The reduction will apply to the first three years of employment in Sweden. However, foreign key personnel may reside in Sweden for up to five years. Individuals qualifying for tax relief may not be Swedish citizens. An individual who has been a resident in Sweden during any of the five years prior to the start of the assignment in Sweden does not qualify for tax relief status.

Special income tax if you work in Sweden and reside abroad (SINK-tax)
Those liable for SINK-tax are people resident or domiciled abroad. They must receive income based on work in Sweden and this income must be liable for tax under the Special Income Tax for Non-Residents Act (1991:586).

Unemployment insurance is in Swedish called Arbetslöshetskassa, or A-kassa. It is a private insurance you voluntarily sign up for yourself. There are several to choose between in the market, often determined by your profession.
More information on unemployment insurance
Many graduates with a university degree are part of AEA, Akademikernas erkända A-kassa. Different insurance companies have different regulations, but you must always be registered unemployed at Arbetsförmedlingen, meet the conditions for work and been a fund member and have been in membership for at least 12 months. You do not have to be a member of any union to sign up for an unemployment insurance.
If you are offered a time-limited employment in Sweden, we recommend you sign up for private unemployment insurance to get financial support when the time-limited employment ends.
If you have worked in Sweden and meet the conditions for work and are registered unemployed at Arbetsförmedlingen without having private unemployment insurance, you are covered by unemployment insurance financed by the government. The government-financed payments are based on your previous salary.
