The Employment and Economic Development Office is an expert in recruitment, and helps the enterprise in matters related to the recruitment of personnel. The assignment of the employer is always the basis for the recruitment and exchange of labour.
The employer can look for a suitable employee abroad as well. The engagement of a foreign employee may require a permit. Additional information at the link to the left ‘Foreigners’ working in Finland’.
The employment relationship between the employee and the employer is regulated by different laws and agreements. For additional information see ‘Labour legislation’.
The employer can announce vacancies by telephone to the Employment and Economic Development Offices or to the national helpline (Työlinja) +358 295 020 705. The vacancies can also be announced via the net (link to the right, service in Finnish).
The announcement of the vacancies are, when required, on the Internet pages of the labour administration. There is also the Career Watch service, which sends the information on the vacancy to the e-mail of the jobseeker.
The employment and economic development office can look for jobseekers meeting the agreed number of demands for the vacancy, if the employer wants to avoid a flood of contacts.
The employer can himself look for an employee from among the jobseekers registered with the Employment and Economic Development Office. The jobseekers introduce themselves in the CV-net application service (link to the right, in Finnish), where there is information on 25000 jobseekers.
The employment and economic development office may grant the employer financial aid for employing an unemployed jobseeker. The aid is discretionary, and the conditions for getting it are clarified in each specific case. The forms of aid include pay subsidy and support for arrangement of working conditions.
