Finnish Lapland Offers the Coolest Jobs of the Season

It is now possible to spend next winter enjoying the magic of the winter wonderland and earn money at the same time. Dozens of companies in Northern Finland are looking for candidates to work in exciting jobs beyond imagination.   

Tourism in Finnish Lapland is expanding more rapidly than ever. And this is good news for adventurers from all over the world. Tens of companies are hiring people to work in exciting jobs such as photography guide, Santa’s elf, Aurora Borealis watch, husky carer and in more conventional tourism related posts.  

In order to make companies and potential employers meet, EURES, the European Job Mobility Portal, has set up a digital platform where one can browse through interesting job opportunities and register as a job seeker.  

An online employment event Work in Lapland will take place the 6th September. In that event it is possible to get things really going – one can have an online job interview and even get hired straight away.  

Dreamjob in photographer’s paradise

Juho Uutela, the CEO of Rovaniemi’s leading photography tour operator, Beyond Arctic, is looking for guides who are passionate about photography and know the Arctic conditions. As a relatively small company Uutela is offering this rare opportunity to three adventurous photographers.

– We are really looking forward to getting interesting applications. Our guides take photographers to the most picturesque spots in the beautiful Lapland. The dream would be to find reputated photographers, who are ready to share their passion with our clients. Lapland is an increasingly popular destination for Northern Lights and landscape photography, and we want to ensure visitors have the best possible guidance.

Santa is looking for helpers 

One of the most exotic vacancies Lapland has to offer for the coming season, is an elf. And not just any kind of an elf, but the elf of Santa himself. As anyone who’s aware of Santa’s work load knows, one or two elves will not be enough. Tens of elves will be needed to help Santa get through the holiday season. 

Reindeer also need carers and guides, as do the hundreds of huskies working in the winter wonderland. Hotels need receptionists, kitchens need chefs and buses need drivers. 

All this to make things smooth for the thousands of visitors coming to Finnish Lapland this winter season.   

Help and guidance is out there

As moving and working in a new country is never a piece of cake, House of Lapland, the regional marketing and communications office, has made sure potential employees find all the information needed through their website. Whether one wants to find accomodation or know about the working conditions, every question has been answered.  

All one has to do is choose the right job, get hired and start the most unforgettable season in the land under the northern lights.
