Welcome to the union for language professionals in Finland!  
The jobscene work-finder page heading for official launch - pilot now visible!

The jobscene page, which will enable prospective employers and clients to recruit relevant language professionals and which will enable PAM-Lingua members to promote their skills and services, will be with us in an matter of days. With no issues reported on the current design and terms and conditions ther way is clar for this page to go live quite fast.

While we have been traditionally associated with language teaching it is surprising to see that we have different professional abilities based around multilingualism within our union. Indeed, as a union for language professionals that can include people with disciplines as diverse as culture and computing , engineering and law. It would be reasonable for us to represent a wide range of occupations which reflect a professional use of languages in many contexts. If that helps us to help more people then we may see more growth in the branch which would in turn help us to leverage more PAM support for our members. That is perhaps a degree of wishful thinking. In any case - why not?

Members will be contacted with jobscene page information. They can then decide to sue it as and when it suits them, by advertising themselves or keeping a watch on any jobs posted as open for applicants.

Hopefully, the pages will be fully active as of the early part of week commencing 12 March. Please note that the in test version is now viewable via the links below. There is already a real job advertised on the page thanks to Akatemia in Kauniainen.
