Municipal employment trial

Promotion of employment with a municipal trial

Municipal employment trial

The municipal employment trials have started on March 1, 2021, and the trials will continue until the end of 2024 when the responsibility for organising employment services shall be transferred from the government to the local authorities. In the municipal trial, the employment of job seekers is strengthened by combining the government and municipal resources, skills and services to promote employment. There are 22 trial areas nationwide and 118 participating municipalities. Five municipalities belong to our Jokilaaksot municipal employment trial; Ylivieska, Kalajoki, Oulainen, Alavieska and Merijärvi.

Who are the customers of the municipal trial?

The customers of the municipal trial are the participating municipalities’ job-seeking customers who receive Kela’s basic daily allowance or job seeker’s allowance, all under 30-year-old job seekers and all foreign-language job seeker customers. The municipal trial customers shall deal with employment-related matters with the municipal trial instead of the TE Office. The customer still has access to the electronic Oma Asiointi service and the national service numbers. The transfer to the trial has taken place automatically.

Where can we be found?

Ylivieska’s municipal trial offices are located in Origo, at Vierimaantie 3. We are open every weekday at 9 am – 3 pm. We close for a lunch break between 11.30 am – 12.30 pm.

The municipal trial team consists of eight TE experts, two social workers, one psychiatric nurse and Kohtaa! Project’s personnel. In addition, our offices are regularly visited by the Raudaskylä Christian College’s employment services, Jedu’s training expert and Sytyke’s Kaari project.

Ylivieska’s office also serves Alavieska’s customers and we produce a local service in Alavieska on Wednesdays at 9 am – 3 pm at Pappilantie 1.
