Why Helsinki?

Safe and stable society

The land of lakes, sauna and sisu is known for being a society where everything just simply works. Helsinki is one of the top European tech hubs – international but with tons of its original spunk. Helsinki has been ranked as one of the most liveable cities in the world. Get to know Finland and Greater Helsinki area.

9 to 5 means 9 to 5

What’s more important, your 9AM to 5PM or your 5PM to 9PM? In Finland you can choose either one, or take them both! We are proud to have one of the best work-life balance in the world. But truthfully speaking, working is pretty great but enjoying life is much better.

Fun with the family

Filled with parks, museums and attractions, Helsinki is a great place to raise kids and enjoy your family to the fullest. Lots of international kindergartens and schools are available in the greater Helsinki area. Finland also has one of the best education systems in the world, so you’ll know your kids are growing smarter day by day.

Don’t just take our word for it…

How to land your dream job in Helsinki?

Yes, we know – it is to beat the other applicants and to land the job. To ensure that you stand a chance among all the other eager applicants, your CV needs to make an impression from the get-go. Most recruiters receive several applications every day – and usually spend less than a minute on a single resume. The trick is to make an impact during these vital seconds.

So how do you get it right? What should you mention – and not mention – in your CV? We’ve put together a few pointers to help you out in making a great, solid CV for yourself.
