The Pirkanmaa ELY Centre is a customer- and citizen-focused, highly competent and reliable regional development and service organization. The ELY Centre carries out the state administration’s regional tasks. The Pirkanmaa Employment and Economic Development Office (TE Office) creates solutions for the needs of recruiting and employment.

The Pirkanmaa TE Office was looking for ways to improve the employment possibilities of non-Finnish-speaking jobseekers who had lost their jobs.
