Matchningskollen

A service that improves the flow for jobseekers and suppliers.

Why does matchningskollen exist?

In May 2020, the National Audit Office released its review report 'support and matching - a system of freedom of choice for jobseekers'. In the survey, 2542 previous participants in support and matchning to the question 'Would any of the following have made it easier for you to make a good choice supplier'? 66% answered that better opportunities to compare providers and their skills had helped. 62% thought that information about what other participants thought about the providers had also helped.

Today, jobseekers can access the Swedish Public Employment Service's search service and suppliers' ratings to make a well-informed choice. However, there is no platform for collecting and taking part in participant assessments which, unlike the authority, can also prioritize being a pure service body vis-à-vis both jobseekers and suppliers. That's why we created matchningskollen.

What is the matchningskollen?

Matchingskollen is a comparison site that helps jobseekers find suppliers of matching services designated by the Swedish Public Employment Service. The website offers updated information about different services as well as a flexible way to search, compare and choose a provider of e.g. support and matching or prepare and match. Unique to the website is also the opportunity to take part in and submit reviews about providers.

For providers of matching services, the website is an opportunity to a greater extent do marketing and inform its target group about its skills and services and thus increase its chances of being chosen as a provider.

Matchningskollen is also a distribution platform for other digital services from the company behind the website.

How is matchningskollen financed?

We safeguard a democratic and objective choice of provider. All providers are included in our search lists as standard and no prioritization based on compensation is offered.

We also offer all providers to edit their own information free of charge and everyone is given equal conditions to present their company.

Our business model is instead based on using matchningskollen as a distribution platform for other fee-based subscription services by Assedon AB. For example. a powerful analysis tool for competitive analysis of growth, market shares, participant insights, etc.

What is the goal of matchningskollen?

Matching actors today have very limited opportunities to be seen and showcase their services to jobseekers. In a reform of the authority with a larger proportion of employment services managed by private companies, new ways are needed for jobseekers and providers to be matched.

In connection with support and matching also being transferred to prepare and match, the rating disappears, at least initially. Then only a function remains as participant assessments to evaluate providers.

In this way, Matchningskollen wants to be a natural gathering place for the two parties, where competence, quality and results clearly permeate each jobseeker's decision on provider.
