The City Board allocates an annual appropriation to be used for employment management. The appropriation is used for purposes such as providing employment within the City for unemployed Helsinki residents, organising training and coaching for them, and assisting associations, foundations and companies. The appropriations are also used to produce products to promote employment.
The Employment Committee monitors the use of the appropriation allocated by the City Board, as well as the realisation of the co-operation agreement between the City of Helsinki and the Uusimaa Employment and Economic Development Office (TE Office).
The City of Helsinki Executive Office’s Economic Development Division is in charge of managing the City’s employment matters. The Economic Development Division’s employment management services are part of the Employment and Business Services Unit.
