Client relationship with Helsinki Employment Services

Helsinki participates in the municipal employment experiment.This means that you will be transferred to the employment services of Helsinki when you register as a jobseeker, if you are domiciled in Helsinki and belong to one of the following target groups:

  • You are not entitled to earnings-related unemployment allowance. In other words, your allowance is paid by Kela.
  • You are under 30 years old.
  • You are a migrant or your native language is not Finnish or Swedish.

If you are not a municipal experiment client, you will continue cooperating with the TE Services for Uusimaa. You do not need to know, yourself, which service applies to you.
