Please note that we have to limit the number of customers in our premises. We also have less self-service terminals in use and they are spaced further apart in order to ensure customers' safety.

All personalised customer service appointments will still take place over the telephone. Information and recruitement events continue to be run online until the end of August.

We are still asking our customers to primarily use our E-services (Oma asiointi) and telephone services. In case you have symptoms of flu, please do not visit our customer service areas. Read more on our latest news.

Please keep in mind that we continue to offer local services (in Finnish) to support your job search. In addition, in case you have lost your job, have been laid off or your business has ended and you feel uncertainty, our psychologists offer support on the telephone.
