Työ-SIB program started in November 2019 and there are 400 participants in the program now. The initial results are promising and with the help of our service providers 118 participants have already found work. We work with companies in various fields and our participants come from different educational backgrounds. The vast majority finds work that corresponds with their education; however, some have wished for a career change and that has been taken into account. The feedback from the first participants have been positive.
The previous SIB employment program we organized, Koto-SIB, was intended for unemployed immigrants. It has helped over 1000 participants find employment. The program started in 2016 and the last participants were accepted in December 2019. The program has had over 2200 participants and we continue to offer them services to support their employment until 2022. Half of all the participants who have completed the program have found work.
