The Summer Job Helpline is once again up and running, which is a sure sign of spring. The helpline is provided jointly by the Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions (SAK), Akava and the Finnish Confederation of Professionals (STTK). If you have summer job questions, you can get advice and answers throughout the summer, from the beginning of May to 30 August.
The Summer Job Advisor can be contacted weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. by phone at +358 (0)800 179 279 or on WhatsApp at +358 (0)40 747 1571.
You can also ask for advice with the electronic contact form.
You can ask questions in Finnish, Swedish and English. All the questions are handled confidentially. If you wish, you can also contact the service anonymously.

Summer Job Advisor Salla Hakoköngäs hopes that summer employees will contact the service immediately if they have any employment concerns. It is possible to do it even before starting a summer job. When an employee is familiar with their rights and responsibilities at the beginning of employment, possible problems can be avoided.
– If you have any concerns, you should call or send a message to the Summer Job Helpline before signing the employment contract. Also employers with questions about summer employees’ employment may contact the helpline, Hakoköngäs reminds.
