Working together for well-being


Social security does not come about by itself. It requires the dedication and commitment of many professionals.

The Finnish social security system relies on the efforts of a wide range of different professionals. Kela employs more than 7,000 professionals from many different fields.

Most work in customer service or handle claims for benefit, but many also work in various planning and managerial positions. We employ 600 IT professionals involved in creating and maintaining the varied systems we rely on to carry out our responsibilities.

If you are interested in working on issues that make a difference to people’s lives and driving positive change while working as part of a team with a unique sense of purpose, we could have the right job for you.
