Working in Finland

Post by Reina » Wed Dec 05, 2018 8:24 pm

Hello!

I have been in Finland couple of weeks now and I would like to work here during the winter. Do you have any ideas how to get a job here? I was thinking about Lappland, but I have been reading that there is no snow...

Do you have the right to work? What kind of permit do you have?

I am from EU, so there is no problem. I would like to stay here, I just need to find a job. This forum is great, lots of information. I also found another web with information in English, foreigner.fi. The other pages are all in Finnish, obviously I don´t understand anything :D. Have you been taking some lessons of Finnish? I just speak some English and Spanish, do you think I can find a job without speaking Finnish?

Nobody has any ideas about finding a work in Finland?? Maybe I could find something related to tourism? Has anybody been in Lappland? Is it easy to find a job there? I guess there is lots of tourists there...

Lappland looks like a great place:

I speak spanish too, and english of course. I came here to work, and I don't know or need any finnish in my job, so it's possible, but it depends on the kind of job you pretend to do. In my case I looked for jobs in LinkedIn.

Thank you guys :). I´ll check out those web-pages.

Where is all the snow?? This weather is like North-Spain!! I want to see snow and reindeers :). I guess I have to go to Lappland for that.

Is there any other place where the foreigners in Finland chat? This forum is not very active...

From my experience cleaners are in constant demand. Try ISS Palvelut, L&T or SOL Palvelut. I have seen lots of cleaners who don't speak Finnish and only little English. May not be the most glamorous job, but also not so bad that it sounds.
