Public Employment Services in Finland and the Åland islands. We provide information, placement and recruitment services to employers and jobseekers whereas the European and National Coordination Offices oversee the organisation of the activities at European and national level respectively.
Åland is an autonomous region of Finland. The people in Åland speak Swedish. It is the island nation that has the most sunshine hours during the summer months in the Nordic region.
Over one third of the population was born outside Åland. Most are from Finland and Sweden, but more and more are moving in from outside the Nordic region. There are migrants from a total of around 100 countries, speaking around 60 different languages.
Employment situation in Åland is good. The open unemployment between 2 and 4 per cent the last few years has lead to increased demand for manpower. Almost all branches have long-term need for personnel, especially health and medical care, IT and hotel and restaurant business.
