Your specialist and E-Services

Your specialist will ensure that all services and information that promote your employment are available to you. When you talk with your specialist for the first time, you will also agree on how you will stay in contact in the future. 

Contacting through E-Services 

  1. Log in to E-Services.  
  2. Write us a message describing your situation. Your specialist will contact you as soon as possible. 

Notify the employment services immediately if, for example

  • you start work
  • you are planning studies or entrepreneurship
  • you receive a grant
  • you are using a billing service.

If you are unsure how your changed situation will affect your right to unemployment benefit, you should always contact us.

If job search is no longer relevant to you and you do not need the unemployment benefit, please go to E-Services and end your job search. That way, we will not try to contact you in job search matters.

Telephone services

You can contact us by phone. You have a variety of telephone services available to you, depending on your situation.
