Job coaching

  • Service
  • Nationwide except the Åland Islands
  • Public service

A job coach will help you personally when you are searching for a job that suits you. With the coach's support, you will discover and make visible your competence and strength in the labour market. A job coach can support you when you are

  • searching for a job
  • preparing a job application
  • getting ready for an interview
  • entering into an employment relationship.

If a contact or application will not lead into employment, the coach will analyse the application situation with you. Your job coach will also support you if

  • you begin apprenticeship training during which your employer receives a pay subsidy or
  • you work with the help of a pay subsidy and participate in training organised by the TE Office during the employment relationship.

When you have found a suitable job, the job coach can help you get started at the workplace. Before the parties enter into an employment relationship or at the beginning of the relationship, a job coach may also assist an employer who is applying for a subsidy from the TE Office or considering the need for a subsidy for arranging working conditions.

The duration and content of the coaching will be agreed upon before the coaching starts. You can get 50 hours of job coaching annually.
