Unemployed people with immigrant background search for work more actively than their native counterparts, found a study.

Unemployed persons with immigrant background are also more willing to take up jobs.

People with foreign background are generally employed more in the service industry and sales. However, more Finns are employed in the medical profession or IT sector compared to the rest of the population.

The contracts of employment of the majority of people with foreign background are fixed term, part-time or temporary or they work as entrepreneurs.

The majority (nearly 80 per cent) of employees with foreign background reported to have experienced equal treatment at work places.

In 2014, approximately 241,000 persons aged 15 to 64 with both parents born abroad were living permanently in the country.

The population of foreign background has risen by almost a percentage point to nearly six per cent in the period between 1990 and 2014.
