Staff and recruitment
Updated 4 September 2020
Staff recruitment has begun around Finland, and new vacancies are becoming continuously available. We’re going to progress one professional group at a time, paying special attention to new service locations. Our aim is to recruit the required number of staff this year. We’ll be monitoring the use of services at the beginning of 2021 and will recruit more employees if required.
Some of our recruitment needs can be covered with our current staff. We have both part-time employees within our staff who’d like to increase their working hours and employees who’d like to move to another town. It’s pleasing that there’ll be experienced employees to launch our operations at new service units. You can follow new job vacancies through our recruitment pages.

Staff recruitment has started in June. Mental health professionals around Finland will be among the first to be recruited. It is also intended to open vacancies for those other professional groups who will be needed in the greatest numbers.
If you’re a healthcare professional and interested in working for the FSHS, be sure to follow our recruitment pages and leave your contact details.

Recruitment will be continued this spring in unusual circumstances. Although the spring’s recruitment events have been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ll continue communicating about the recruitment process in other channels. We’ll also employ new channels, such as advertisements on Terveysportti healthcare database. We are trying to start recruiting in the spring, but more vacancies will appear in the autumn.
A map has been added to our recruitment pages (in Finnish) to show vacancies in different towns and occupational groups. Using these pages people can express their interest in future vacancies. By leaving their contact details using an online form, they can subscribe to notifications about vacancies and other recruitment-related information. As many as 1,550 potential applicants have already left their contact details!

Our multidisciplinary working community includes general practitioners, nurses and public health nurses, physiotherapists, dentists and dental assistants, oral hygienists, psychologists, specialists in psychiatry, psychiatric nurses, as well as other employees assisting with treatment or working in administration. 90% of our employees are healthcare professionals.
