Number of working capacity coordinators to rise

The number of working capacity coordinators at TE Offices will be increased in 2020–2022. The purpose is to improve the services available to persons with impaired work capacity so that the labour market demand for this group of people would increase. This requires that the working capacity coordinators develop cooperation between employers and companies. The special needs of people with partial work capacity will be taken into better consideration. 

The increase in the number of working capacity coordinators is based on the realisation that meeting the service needs of jobseekers with partial work capacity and finding employment for them requires better coordination of services.

Working capacity coordinators work as experts at TE Offices and ensure that jobseekers with partial work capacity have access to all services promoting employment, irrespective of the body organising the service. 

In addition to supporting the customer, working capacity coordinators will build an effective cooperation network in their area together with experts from other bodies.
