Recruiting an employee

  • Service
  • Nationwide except the Åland Islands
  • Public service

A TE Office provides companies and employers with recruitment advice for filling a vacancy, information on jobseekers and the labour market situation in a given industry. Recruitment specialists help find the right person for the job. A TE Office also grants, on application, different forms of aid when the person to be hired is unemployed.

You can choose from various online services and methods of finding employees.

  • Publish your job vacancies in the Avoimet työpaikat search service within the TE services.
  • Task the TE Office with finding in the TE services customer database your chosen number of candidates that meet your search criteria and showing them to you.
  • Organise a recruitment event in cooperation with the TE Office.
  • Search for suitable employees from among the jobseekers who are currently developing their skills through labour market training. Browse training courses already in progress. Trainers will give you further information on the content and aims of the training programme, schedules and implementing on-the-job learning.

TE Offices offer jobs to jobseekers whose professional skills and competences meet the requirements of the job. Job offers are binding on the jobseeker
