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.

  • you are under 30 years old
  • your native language is something other than Finnish or Swedish, or you do not have Finnish citizenship
  • you receive a labour market subsidy or basic unemployment allowance from Kela
  • you have previously been a customer of the local government pilot.

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.

Local government pilot brings some customers from the TE Office to the City of Porvoo

Porvoo participates in a local government pilot project on employment from 1 March 2021 to 31 December 2024. In the pilot, the staff or the TE Office moved to the City of Porvoo, and almost 2,600 unemployed persons who were customers of the TE Office previously became customers of the City’s Employment Services. The goal of the pilot is to:

  • improve the employment rate of unemployed jobseekers as well as their access to education or other services
  • introduce new solutions for the availability of skilled workforce
  • bring employment, social and healthcare services closer together for the benefit of the customer
