Employment services for people under 30

The youth employment services are intended for Helsinki residents under the age of 30. The youth services are comprised of a walk-in advisory service Ohjaamo, as well as individual guidance services, career and TYP services, which are available to people who are referred by cooperation partners or an advisory service.

The aim of the youth employment services is to help the customer find education, work or another activity. The service emphasises confidentiality and the customer ’s own wishes. The customer’s overall situation is taken into account and supported in every way.

As a customer of the City’s employment services, the customer can find out more about the City of Helsinki’s work try-outs and pay subsidy jobs, which can act as a springboard into the open jobs market. The City’s education services are available, and the customer has the opportunity to participate in a training organised by a private company. When looking for work on the open jobs market, you can utilise the Helsinki-benefit. The Helsinki-benefit is a grant provided by the City of Helsinki to employers who hire unemployed Helsinki residents for the private or volunteer sector.
