Working in Finland

Season work and more

Our site offers information about work possibilities in Finnish countryside - for longer or shorter term.

We have collected information on entering Finland, working and living here, for example by providing links to different authorities and other sites.

Our English material deals a lot with season work in Finland. We have a project going on seasonal workforce, run by MTK and Töitä Suomesta Oy and funded by The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

We share information on season work: what, when and how to find a seasonal job in different languages and offer a platform for farms to advertise their farm and job possibilities. If you are interested in job in our season work platform or social media, apply directly to the farm/how they wish for application.

Sustainable chain from home country to finding a seasonal job in Finland and working here and returning is important, supported by good employership and fair working environment. We are participating the EU campaing on seasonal workers' rights - #Rights4AllSeasons.
