A digital home for the young professionals

Academic Work is one of the prime staffing and recruitment companies in the Nordics. Focused on the young professionals, the company count over 2.2 billion SEK in sales in Sweden alone.


Our engagement with Academic Work started in 2015, is both wide and deep and includes undertakings for sister companies and subsidiaries. Academic Work’s most important challenge was to attract and retain a younger audience with a modern site that appeals to young professionals and corporate customers equally. Improving design was the first step and our mission has then focused on building new sections, such as a separate web for corporate customers, optimizing and simplifying the flow for both application and recruitment as well as improving job search through search engine analysis and search engine development.

Apart from the main platform, we developed external platforms such as the Instajob and Happo apps.

Happo is the easy all-in-one-place solution for recruiting companies’ teams to keep track of candidates and applications.
Instajobs is a simpler push of a button way for companies looking for candidates to take on shorter, flexible gigs. Two years after launch, Instajobs have more than 1400 active client users.
