Recruitment and training

Do you need new employees or to update your employees' competence? Our region offers quite a comprehensive offering of education for both young people and adults.

More than 100 different vocational qualifications can be completed in Raahe. Cooperation with higher education institutions is also continuously developed with several partners. Students come to Raahe to study Bachelor's degrees in Civil and Structural Engineering, ICT and Mechanical Engineering, nursing, and Business Administration specialising in gaming industry.

Flexible training solutions for companies ensure that competence is always up to date and work licences are in order. Of course, you can also receive professional support for recruitment from Finland's friendliest TE Office and local recruitment services.

Cooperation is easy and fruitful!

Coordinated by the TE Office, the Work and Education Fair TSÄÄNSSI is organised in Raahe every year in January. In 2022, Raahe Region Development launched the Crossroads (Risteys) recruitment events, which will continue with partners and companies. The fairs and events are intended for everyone interested in work and education, and participation in them is free of charge for employers and visitors.

For those interested in job opportunities in the Raahe region and the neighbouring areas, you can check out the Power Corner Finland website which contains information on the municipalities, sectors and recreation in the area.
