Kainuun Sote Recruiting
Kainuun Sote Is a Forerunner
The Kainuu region is a forerunner in combining social and health care services: the integrated social and health care model, soon to be introduced throughout Finland, was implemented in Kainuu as early as 2005. Kainuun sote (the Kainuu Social and Health Care Joint Authority) is responsible for the provision of social and health care services for a region with some 75,000 inhabitants. The joint authority has seven municipal members (Hyrynsalmi, Kajaani, Kuhmo, Paltamo, Ristijärvi, Sotkamo, Suomussalmi), and the municipality of Puolanka is a partial member.
At the moment, Kainuun sote has some 3,500 employees serving in different social and health care duties and their support services (personnel, financial and data administration services). There are almost one hundred work units in different parts of Kainuu. The organisation is the biggest employer in the Kainuu region, offering employees interesting and challenging duties, as well as good and flexible fringe benefits, such as transfer of annual leave days accrued with the employee when they change work units. Coping at work is supported by employee benefits, and employees are urged to develop their competencies by offering good training opportunities.
According to the feedback there is a relaxed and comfortable working atmosphere, good collegial support, and flexible working hours. The working environment at the Kainuu Social Welfare and Health Care Joint Authority is also multicultural. We have several doctors and nurses of foreign origin (Russia , Estonia etc.) and lately we have also had positive experiences of recruiting doctors from Spain.
Comprehensive Quality of Life in Kainuu
In Kainuu, everyday living is easy. In local population centres, the distances from home to work, school and spare-time activities are short – compared to people living in big cities, Kainuu region inhabitants spend less time commuting. Housing is reasonably priced, and the alternatives range from new blocks of flats to lakeside single-family houses. Services for families function well and there are excellent opportunities to practice various activities for people of all ages.
In Kainuu, life is unique in a Kainuu Way – come and try it!
