Who we are
The ByggJobs platform was founded in 2018 by the EHRAB Group, a Nordic based staffing and recruitment company specialised within the construction industry. ByggJobs is a virtual marketplace for job seekers and employers within the construction-, civil engineering-, and network installation industry in Europe. Our aim is to offer reliable access to skilled and semi-skilled workforce from all over Europe.
The last decades, the European construction industry has undergone tremendous development, but has also experienced difficulties in finding skilled labor. This has led to many companies looking for workers outside of their countries to compensate for the lack of resources. Many foreign contractors now get their labor from the Eastern European market and have turned their businesses towards Scandinavia. The unregulated market has made it possible to easier exploit the European tax-regulations; for example the cross-border placement act, which consequently affected the construction labor market with the outcome of social dumping, lack of control. All of this has led to exploitation of human labor.
As a response to this, the EHRAB Group founded the ByggJobs app with focus on sustainability and social responsibility. ByggJobs´s objective is to offer a platform where employees and employers can be matched in a professional and sustainable manner. The long-term goal is to eliminate social dumping within the construction industry by offering a virtual market place that focuses on transparency, care, and control.
