Excerpted from the Finland Career Guide

Business is struggling this year, as output and earnings have fallen from last year’s optimistic outlook. The most recent Confederation of Finnish Industries’ (EK) Business Tendency Survey of business outlook finds Finland’s business growth continuing to weaken in the coming months. With employer confidence cautious in all major sectors, it’s no surprise hiring is flat and even expected to decline in manufacturing industries.

Employment Outlook

Management consulting is thriving in Finland. The size of the management consulting sector remains relatively small but it is growing in response to moves by major employers to improve their bottom lines by outsourcing certain job functions. All the large international management consultant firms, such as Accenture, McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte and KPMG have a presence in Finland and offer management, technology and financial consulting services. Additionally, many smaller, local Finnish consultancies specialize in niche markets.
