Finland Post receives 30,000 job applications every year


Finland Post is an attractive employer, with approximately 30,000 persons submitting a job application every year, either for a fixed-term or a permanent job. As the population ages, the Post is facing recruitment challenges similar to those of many other large employers.

In order to facilitate the job application process, on 23 April Finland Post opened a recruitment service point at the Helsinki General Post Office (address: Asema-aukio 5). The service point provides an additional channel for job applicants and it is hoped that it will also lower the recruitment threshold for those interested in making a career in the company.

Today, the most important channel for job applicants is the Post's website. Implemented in 2005, this electronic recruitment system has helped speed up the handling of applications and, thus, accelerate the recruitment process. The system is available in Finnish and English.

- As a large employer, Finland Post was among the first companies to face the changes taking place in working life. These challenges include competition for employees and multiculturalism, which we have been focusing on for a long time. For example, we have been familiar with the concept of multiculturalism since the 1980s, and today our employees represent over 40 different cultural backgrounds, said Tuike Karppinen, Vice President, Human Resources at the opening of the recruitment service point.

Today, Finland Post Group has over 23,000 employees in Finland.

- An international Group offers a wide variety of career opportunities. Each position has its own specific requirements and, for example, fluency in Finnish is not required for all positions. We also offer jobs that fit in well with the applicant's different needs and situations in life. Our seasonal jobs are a good example of such vacancies.
