The Satakunta University of Applied Sciences (SAMK) in Finland has more than 500 international students from 76 countries. The number is increasing every year. They study at the Pori and Rauma campuses in nine-degree programmes. The majority of them would like to find employment in Finland.

Local companies have the great opportunity to recruit language-skilled and motivated employees for various jobs. The platform and connecting service allows companies to recruit skilled international people for summer jobs, practices and part-time jobs. Young people interested in working in the field of sustainable mobility and transport can seek out opportunities via the platform by creating a profile, which can be discovered by companies seeking employees.

With the help of this service, the central goal is to address the shortage of skilled workers in the region in Finland. Ultimately, the platform, which is managed by the University, aims to ensure employment of all students.
