Recruitment Kainuu

RecruitmentKainuu Project – Connecting Employers and Job-Seekers

In various sectors in the Kainuu region the shortage of workforce is a reality. Kainuu has many great career opportunities for gaming industry experts, coders, registered nurses, doctors, social workers, cooks, bakers, metal workers, welders, mining industry professionals and engineers in various sectors, among others. Kainuun Etu Ltd and the Regional Council of Kainuu have started a two-years joint project (RecruitmentKainuu) to find ways to combat labor shortage and the mismatch of labor supply and demand.

The project develops new procedures to connect skilled professionals to open positions. The project co-operates closely with public and private sector organizations to figure out their needs concerning proficient workforce now and in the coming years. One of the aims is to map out hidden jobs. The project has a wide network that consists of municipalities, educational units, public employment and business services and private sector recruitment agencies.

The target group in focus of this project are people living in the region or somewhere else in Finland, finishing their studies, unemployed or professionals looking for new career opportunities. This project is particularly reaching out to people who are originally from the region of Kainuu or have moved for studies or for work at some point of their lives.

Communication plays a key role in providing up-to-date information for professionals and students about open positions, internship and career opportunities in Kainuu.
