Local government pilot on employment
The local government pilots on employment started on 1 March 2021 and will end on 30 June 2023. During the pilot projects, certain duties of the state-run Employment and Economic Development Offices (TE Offices) are transferred to municipalities. Porvoo is one of the municipalities participating in the pilots.
The local government pilots on employment aim to increase employment among unemployed jobseekers and direct them to training and education more effectively. Another objective is to create new solutions to ensure the availability of skilled labour. The pilots make it possible to more effectively coordinate employment, social and health services for the benefit of customers.
Customers are assigned to the pilot project by the TE Office
During the pilot project, jobseekers continue to register to the TE Office as usual. TE Office assigns those belonging to the target group of the pilot to the right municipal service. The assigned customers receive their TE services from the municipality during the entire pilot project.
The services provided by the municipality are available to customers participating in the local government pilot and can still be applied for directly. The services provided by the municipality are also available to customers of the TE Office who are not participating in the local government pilot.
All the municipalities participating in the local government pilots on employment are listed on the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment’s website.
