RekryKainuuLive is opening an opportunity to make a difference.

The Kainuu Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment has launched an ESR-funded project RekryKainuuLive – Skilled workforce to Kainuu Region by modern means. The project aims to improve jobseekers job search opportunities and help introduce digital solutions to improve employment by bringing employers and jobseekers together.

The specific objective of our project is to contribute to the promotion of the employment of young people and others at a disadvantage in the labor market. With visual communication, we aim to reflect the more important values of our organization; promoting equality and non-discrimination; and to emphasize the beauty and lifestyle of Kainuu Region.
