“All You Need Is Gloves” Best Club Event To Date

Our best attended High Coast International Club event gets cover story in Tidningen 7.

It was, by all accounts, one of the most fun events that HCIC has put since its founding… and by far its biggest attendance wise.

Working glove in glove with Bjästabacken föreningar, Fritidsdbanken and Kultur & Fritid, the January event titled “All You Need is Gloves” brought 77 international workers and international Swedes from BAE, Bosch Rexroth, Rise Processum and other subscriber companies to the hill. Burgers and dogs were grilled and ski clinics taught newbies how to ski and snowboard, all the while as people met new friends and found a new hobby to engage winter with.

Tidningen 7, the main event magazine of the city, picked the gathering to be its cover story of the week. “HCIC is of course fun, meant to build community,” explains Sam Coleman, The High Coast International Hub founder along with Rory Moore. “But what we’re happy to achieve is introduce our members to the good things that you can find in the High Coast and keep their incredible talents in our local economy.”

High Coast International Hub Teams Up with Jobba & Lev at Bazaren 2023 in Stockholm

We have an existential threat in the North of Sweden: depopulation. Without new people moving to our towns—adding their economic contribution, their ideas and their vitality—we’ll suffer a negative downward spiral.


To counteract this, Jobba & Lev and the High Coast International Hub will join a cadre of Norrland organisations to attend Bazaren, an event happening in Stockholm February 16-17. Roughly 100 employers will be on site looking for staff in, among other areas, sales, hospitality, offices, transport, IT, technology, logistics, schools and health and care. The vacancies are available both in the Stockholm region and in Norrland. But importantly, NGOs like HCIH and Jobba&Lev will tell the story that the North is an attractive option to live and work in and that—along with jobs—we have a welcoming social programmes like HCIC and the High Coast International Day to make those new citizens feel engaged.
