Find an International Employee
Where and How to Market a Job Opening?
The mobility of labour has increased as specialists are found abroad in many sectors. On the other hand, many businesses start their internationalisation “from home”, using the talent pool already located in the region. See our tips for finding an international employee either locally or globally.
Apply for Residence Permit
What an Employer Should Know About Permit Process and Registration?
Hiring an international employee is not harder than hiring a Finnish employee, but you have to officially sort out a few things.

There are several forms for employment-based residence applications.
