Employment Services

In Porvoo, employment services are provided by Ohjaamo, the local government pilot on employment, and the Labour Force Service Centre (TYP). The City of Porvoo offers its diverse services to all Porvoo residents covered by the local government pilot on employment.

Are you looking for a job? Is your company looking for an employee?

The City of Porvoo organises statutory guidance, counselling and education services for jobseekers, but also work try-out opportunities, various lectures and events, rehabilitative work and pay-subsidised employment.

All services support the jobseeker’s return to work and the recognition and development of their competencies. The cross-sectoral services also include many other forms of supporting employment, such as workshops.

The employment services also support local employers in cooperation with the TE Services. An employer may receive financial support for the payroll costs of an unemployed Porvoo resident as pay subsidy from the central government and as municipal employment allowance from the City of Porvoo.

The City of Porvoo supports entrepreneurs and employers by providing advice on employment issues.

  • you receive a labour market subsidy or basic unemployment allowance from Kela
