Questions and answers on coronavirus and seasonal work
Students can offer assistance and farm replacement services as necessary if the coronavirus epidemic affects a farm entrepreneur’s operations. Working on a farm could be included as part of studies in vocational education institutions, universities of applied sciences and universities. For students, the arrangement provides an opportunity to continue studies in these exceptional circumstances. For recent graduates, this is an opportunity to find employment in the sector. In the Töitäsuomesta.fi online service, people can register as volunteers, or to find additional labour for farms, horse farms and forestry and horticulture sectors. Additional labour consists of students working as part of studies, and those who request financial compensation.
