Hello all! I have just moved to Helsinki from the Uk to live with my Finnish girlfriend. This is my first time living outside of the UK although I have visited Finland a lot in the last 2 years.

Would be great to meet some people with similar stories or experiences or just good advice. Maybe when I have been here a little longer and I know a little more I will be able to help others.

I do have some specific questions about working and stuff but I assume there is a special board for posting this sort of stuff so for know I will just say hello!

Hello all,

I moved to Finland on September 1st, and it looks like I'll be in Helsinki for a year. What happens after my contract ends is a mystery to unfold :)

Now that I count, Finland is the 7th country I'm living in. Started learning Finnish right away and am really enjoying it. Took an intensive class even though it was tiring to go there every day after work... It ended last week but I'm starting the 2nd level at the end of October, a less intensive class with only 2 days a week. Because I do need some time for other things as well!

Finland is very green and I love it, I want to spend time outdoors whenever the weather permits. I love hiking, wildlife and being/walking in nature in general. It would be great to  organize events with people who like these.


Greetings to all the family. I am looking for a job in Finland.  I am currently working here in Nairobi, Kenya . I am a trained supply chain professional and I have working experience (my current job is in this area). I also have qualifications and experience in the field of ICT. I am seeking an opportunity in Finland, and as such, I am looking to find an employer who can hire me and send me a job offer so I can apply for a visa on that background.

I would highly appreciate if you can give me any advise for this one.  Thank you.

my name is Gladys.
im a French girl leaving in London. im moving to Helsinki in January.
I don't know anyone there

getting along with people here is a little difficult cause of finnish introvert culture. though you can make new friends once you are here.
