4. Decision and reception
When appointing a new manager, there must be some cooperation before you make a decision on who should be employed. For other recruitment, cooperation takes place in the form of a local cooperation agreement.
Negotiation of terms of employment
The negotiation of employment conditions shall be governed by the KI salary policy.
It is important to know that an oral agreement is binding. As a representative of the employer, you must therefore be careful not to make any promises regarding employment or salary in a way that the candidate could perceive as a promise or an agreement.
When it is clear who will be offered the post, you must write a decision on employment (in Swedish). The decision must be posted on the digital notice board which is in the reception in Aula Medica on Nobels väg 6, Solna. You upload the decision in Varbi and it will then be visible on the digital notice board.
Employment decisions for postgraduate students
A decision is not made on admission to postgraduate education for doctoral students until after the admissions seminar. The admissions seminar may take place directly after recruitment when a candidate is appointed to a place, or several months later. The decision cannot be appealed.
It is possible to appeal against a decision regarding employment at a state authority. In such cases, an appeal must be lodged no later than three weeks after the date on which the decision was posted on the notice board. For this reason it is best if the start date of employment is after the appeal period. It is only applicants who are not offered a post that can appeal against the decision. Information about this is given in the employment decision that is posted on the notice board in Aula Medica.
Feedback to other applicants
When the employment decision is posted, contact the other applicants as soon as possible. Those who you interviewed should be given verbal feedback. You then notify all applicants through Varbi or in another suitable way.
It is important that all the applicants receive the standardised KI No thank you e-mail. As it is sent from a state authority, the message must contain certain information, including the phrase “The employment decision is posted on the notice board at Nobels väg 6, Solna.”
The contract is drawn up in two copies. One copy is kept by the HR department at KI and one copy is kept by the new employee. The contract must be drawn up before the employee starts working.
Archiving and registration
The case can be archived after the deadline for an appeal has expired. When the recruitment case is archived in Varbi, a direct transfer is made to the Register. Start from the list of documents to archive:
- Recruitment documents such as needs analysis, requirements profile, financing
- List of advertising places
- Applications including attachments
- Decision on employment
- Application from those employed
- Appeal, if any
- Withdrawal of application, if any
- Other correspondence, if any
- Service notes, if any
The decision on who is employed and their application documents are archived forever. Other application documents are removed after two years.

Right to work in Sweden
In order for KI to comply with current legislation, we must ensure that employees from other countries have the right to work in Sweden. Therefore, before an employment, we need to request one of the following documents:
- Birth Certificate. This is ordered through the Swedish Tax Agency.
- Copy of passport or national ID card to strengthen EU- citizenship. Applicable to persons who do not have a Swedish social security number.
- Copy of a valid residence permit. Applicable to persons who are not citizens of any EU or EEA country or Switzerland.
Please register the expiration of a residence permit
Remember to always register in Primula when the residence permit expires so that we can see that the employee submits an extension.
In cases where recruitment results in a person from another country being employed, KI's International Staff Services can provide assistance and guidance on any issues that arise, such as:
• Residence permit (Migration Board)
• Personal identification number or ID card (Tax Agency)
Introduction to KI
At KI there is an introductory package that is emailed to all employees before the first day of employment. During the first week of a new employment, all employees should review additional web-based programs. They take about two hours to complete.
An introductory day for new employees is offered once a semester in Swedish.
A joint introduction to KI in English is offered twice a semester. The dates can be found in the International Staff Services Calendar.
In addition, each institution is responsible for the introduction of the new employee.
