Application process

We go through all received applications and invite to an interview those applicants whose competence best matches the expectations of the task based on the applications.


After the end of the application period, each applicant will receive information from us on how the process continues for them. If you have not advanced to the interview at this stage, we will send you information about it by email.

As a rule, we invite applicants to an interview by telephone. The interviews are held at our office in Kalasatama in Helsinki, or sometimes also remotely.

Video interviews

At times before the actual interview round we invite applicants to take part in a video interview. Invitations to video interviews and instructions are sent by email. If you did not advance to the video interview, you will also receive information about it by email.

Information about the selection

All applicants to any task are notified of the selection. We send the selection result to all applicants by email, also to the selected person. If you had an interview with us, you always get information about the selection from the recruiting supervisor by telephone.

Open application

Were you unable to find a suitable task? Do not worry, you can submit an open application to us on the website. You can make one open application and address it to several government agencies and ministries at the same time. We may contact those who have submitted an open application, for example, in case of a shorter fixed-term task that is not open for public application.
