Registering as a job seeker: We have instructions for registering as a job seeker on our national website:
Electronic registration is the preferred method. If this is not possible, you can download a job seeker's registration form on the suomi.fi site:
Print the form, then complete and sign it. You can drop it off into our mailboxes at the doors of our offices, or send the form to us by post. In this case, your job search will start from the date when we receive the form.
If necessary, you can also pick up for a form with a date stamp from one of our open offices, complete it at home and send it to us in two weeks' time. In this case, your job search will be started retroactively from that date. If you are unable to fill in the registration form yourself, you will receive help completing it at our offices. The offices in Vantaa, Helsinki Itäkeskus and Helsinki city centre are completely closed, and registration forms with a date stamp are not available from them.
