Working in Finland

Season work and more

Our site offers information about work possibilities in Finnish countryside - for longer or shorter term. For season work we offer a meeting point, a platform, for seasonal employers and job seekers, as a part of our season work project 2020-2021. We also offer recruitment services for employers who often look for people for longer periods, in different fields, usually internationally as well. We don't hire ourselves.

We have collected general information on entering Finland, working and living here, even if a lot of the English material is season work oriented for now. We have a seasonal workforce project going on, 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 and offer a platform for farms to advertise their farm and job possibilities and for workers to find a job. If you are interested in job in our season work platform or social media, apply directly to the farm/how they wish to receive the applications.

Please take a notice that job seeking and finding a job in Finland and in EU is free of charge - you can find and apply freely to any job by yourself. 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.
