Support for job seeking

We want to support our members’ job seeking and employment in cooperation with other Akava trade unions. If you are a member of the Union and are unemployed or at risk of losing your job, you can take part in training aimed at promoting the employment of persons with a higher education degree in your own region.


These regional employment projects – including training, events, webinars and peer groups – are free for members. Find out more about what is offered in your region:


> Työnhakuveturi

Northern Ostrobothnia, Lapland and Kainuu:
> Urasampo

> Uratehdas

Southwest Finland and Satakunta:
> Urapurje

If you are working but need tips concerning a turning point in your working life, you can take part in the lectures and webinars organised in your region.
