The Union of Professional Engineers in Finland is familiar with the salary level of engineers and technical experts.
The Union conducts an annual Labor Market Survey, which serves as a tool for negotiations and members’ pay advice. Salary statistics contain pay scales for different sectors, tasks, and geographical areas, for example. The statistics consist of salary data for over 10,000 engineers. The Union also monitors, for example, the salaries of IT workers.
The salary counter is a tool that allows you to identify a suitable pay bracket, for example, when applying for a new job. When you want to negotiate the salary, check the salary statistics, and identify your desired pay with the help of the salary counter.
Sometimes it can sbe difficult to define a salary request. Experts from the Union’s salary counseling team provide personal pay advice at different stages of a professional’s career. Advice on both domestic and foreign salaries is available.
