The Finnish innovation fund Sitra estimates that there could be up to 360,000 “hidden” jobs in Finland.
The estimate is based on feedback received from companies that reveals that there are more jobs that could be done.
Sitra has planned an experiment in which companies bring their hidden jobs and unfinished work into the open. The Employment and Economic Development Centres and municipalities will then pair potential employees with appropriate work.
The trial will start in Tampere and Turku as well as in Helsinki. According to Sitra, almost 100 employees have registered for the trial.
“The ease and flexibility of recruitment will increase the demand for labour. In Finland, there is a strong belief that further training and employment subsidies are the key to getting the unemployed back to work. In truth, these only work when the expertise and recruitment services meet a real need of the employer, and in a timely manner,” said Sitra's Senior Adviser Mikko Kesä.
According to the Ministry of Employment and the Economy, there are about 30,000 open job positions in Finland.
