Number of vacant jobs decreased by a quarter in the Helsinki region

By the end of March, there were 25 per cent fewer vacant jobs in the Helsinki region’s Employment and Economic Development Offices compared to the year before. The number of vacant jobs decreased nationally by 19 per cent.

For every vacant job in the Helsinki region, there were approximately 2.4 unemployed applicants. The number of vacant jobs in the Helsinki region was 17,700, which represents 27 per cent of all vacant jobs in the country.

Numbers of open vacancies increased by March 2020

The number of vacant jobs registered with the Employment and Economic Development Offices increased in the Helsinki region between 2015 and March 2020. The downturn is mostly explained by the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on the labour market.
