Job vacancy survey

Producer: Statistics Finland

Latest release:
Clearly more open job vacancies in the last quarter than one year previously
17 Feb 2022
There were 59,100 open job vacancies in the last quarter of 2021, while the figure was 33,400 one year earlier. These data derive from Statistics Finland's statistics on open job vacancies and describe the situation on the first day of December. During 2021, the average number of job vacancies was 58,000, whereas in 2020 the number was 43,800. The annual average number of open job vacancies was higher than in 2019, the year preceding the coronavirus pandemic, when they numbered 50,000, on average.

Description: The job vacancy survey produces quarterly information about open job vacancies in Finland. The results describe the demand for labour and changes in it examined from the viewpoint of employers. The statistics are based on Regulation (EC) No 453/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The objective is to produce up-to-date and comparable information about the number and structure of job openings on the labour markets of EU Member States.
