MW Group (formerly Military Work) was founded in 2012 in Norrköping, Sweden out of a genuine commitment to support the Swedish Armed Forces’ transformation from a conscription system to a voluntary and employed defence. From the comrades ‘associations for Coastal Rangers, Paratroopers and Military Interpreters’ to working with the civilian merit of military service; the idea was born to create a company specialising in recruiting and staffing civilian organisations, with individuals with experience in military service. MW Group has placed a special focus on creating jobs that could be combined with military reserve service. The founders of the company were Mikael Karlsson, Johan Karlsson, Simon Österström, Martin Carlsson-Wall, Jimmy Johansson and Hans-Peter Lindqvist.

In 2017, Military Work began its international expansion by establishing operations in Finland, followed by Denmark in 2019.

In 2020, Military Work became MW Group, transitioning from staffing to a modern Nordic defence and societal critical service provider.

The compass – is an important symbol for the company, which has traditions that stretch all the way back to the company’s first strategy meeting. Jimmy Johansson, one of the company’s founders, spoke enthusiastically about the importance of navigating forward with clear values in building the company so that we would be a reliable partner for our employees, our customers, and the Armed Forces we work with.

The compass is an important military tool that illustrates our heritage but is also a symbol that our values govern and our reliability as a partner should lead us right in everyday life.
