The Summer Job Helpline offers advice on matters related to summer employment. You can request information by calling 0800 179 279 from 09.00 to 15.00 on Monday to Friday. Calls to this number are toll-free, and written questions may also be sent using a webform.

You can find further advice and guidance in the Summer job checklist and the Frequently asked questions. When problems arise you may also talk to more senior colleagues and workmates, your local shop steward or employee representative, or the trade union for the industry concerned.

Please note, that the The Summer Job Helpline does not find jobs for people. Help is available for jobseekers at Employment and Economic Development (TE) Offices.

The Summer Job Helpline is provided by the national labour confederations of Finland: SAK, Akava and STTK. The helpline will stay open until 30 August.
