In the Employment Municipalities Experiment, some of the TE Office’s tasks relating to certain client groups will be transferred by legislation to the municipality participating in the Employment Municipalities Experiment.

The national aim of the municipal employment trials is to promote the employment of unemployed jobseekers and their access to training and services more effectively and to create new solutions for the availability of skilled labour.

The clients of the pilot area are unemployed jobseekers, jobseekers in employment and jobseekers in employment promotion services whose municipality of residence is Kemijärvi and who do not meet the conditions for receiving income support or are under 30 years of age, immigrants or foreign-language speakers.

Unemployed jobseekers and jobseekers in employment services will be automatically referred to the pilot areas.

Being referred to the municipality means that the TE Office informs the jobseeker that the municipality of his or her residence will be responsible for providing TE services to him or her.

The unit is used to organise

  • Wage subsidies
  • Rehabilitative work activities
  • Work trial
  • Summer jobs for schoolchildren and students in the city

The unit is staffed by a social worker for working-age people, a social counsellor and a nurse, who are involved in the clients’ processes when necessary.

The unit offers a comprehensive health check to all unemployed people.
