There is a limit on the total number of characters in our announcements: why is this and how do I know how many characters my announcement contains?
In order to publish our vacancies in the Swedish Public Employment Services’ Platsbanken, which is mandatory for KTH as a public authority (cf. Guidelines on Announcing Appointments), the maximum length of the announcement is 6,500 characters for each language version, including spaces.
Although only the Swedish-language announcement needs to be published in Platsbanken, the English version should be as similar to the Swedish as possible, and identical in terms of qualifications (requirements and preferred qualifications).
English-language versions of our announcements always conclude with the following text (which must not be removed): Disclaimer: In case of discrepancy between the Swedish original and the English translation of the job announcement, the Swedish version takes precedence.
This is where to find the user manual that explains how to calculate the length of your announcement (in Swedish)
