Sanna Ranta

Registrations Manager

Registrations Manager Sanna Ranta's office is located in Kajaani, but as the supervisor of 35 employees she travels, for example to hold performance evaluations, between Ylivieska in the south and Ivalo in the north.

Like all other managers at the National Land Survey of Finland (NLS), Sanna is a professional supervisor. When administrative tasks do not demand all of her time, Sanna handles registrations of title and mortgages.

"The ability to read people is important in my job. It is also important to know the legislation and practices related to the contents of the job", says the Registrations Manager for Northern Finland.

"My job involves registrations issues related to real property and it's very specific. This field of work would offer valuable experience to, for example, lawyers, because one learns about registrations of title and mortgages, an experience not available through studies or by undergoing court training."

"The best thing about working at the NLS is my colleagues. Here I have the opportunity to work with lawyers and engineers, and there are plenty of different points of view."

Sanna graduated Master of Laws in 2005, after which she underwent court training at the District Court of Lapland and worked as a legal counsel and as a lawyer at a bank. Sanna started working for the NLS in 2009.
