Employment for spouse / partner

Working in Finland is possible for the spouses/partners. The right to work is based either on a residence permit or an EU-citizens registration.

The TE-Office (employment office) provides Integration Services for Immigrants and you can contact them  by email at kirjaamo.keski-suomi@te-toimisto.fi and ask for an appointment for an initial assessment.

After the assessment you will work together with the TE Office or the local authorities to draw up your integration plan. This plan will set out the services you will need to support your integration and employment. The plan could contain participation in integration training, a course in Finnish or Swedish, other education or training, labour market training or a work try-out.

You can also apply for jobs directly. Job advertisements can be found e.g. at the following sites
