Information about the website is a website maintained by the State Treasury. It aims to provide information about the Government as an employer and about applying for Government jobs. Candidates can also use the website to submit their applications to vacancies offered by the Government.

The website was released in spring 2015, and it is being continuously updated and completed.

Overall responsibility for the website rests with the State Treasury. The Personnel Management Support unit of the State Treasury's Financial and Personnel Administration division is in charge of the website's information content. The State Treasury also manages recruitment services for applicants for vacancies. For the contact details of the State Treasury, see the right side of the page. In questions relevant to individual recruitments, the applicant is advised to contact the recruiting agency.

Site structure in short

  • The latest vacancies and an application form are embedded in the frontpage. Beside the vacancies, you will find other links associated with the recruitment service. The frontpage also contains links to the latest news and the next upcoming events. In the carousel in the right-hand side of the frontpage, a few employees and employers introduce themselves.
  • All news, new appointments and events are published in the Current items section.
  • The Working for the Government section contains information about common features of Government jobs,  including values and the conditions of employment. It also provides some key figures describing the personnel and FAQs.
  • In the Employers and Employees section, various government agencies can introduce themselves as employers as well as present some of their employees and describe their duties. The employers have been grouped by branches of administration. For those agencies that have as yet not prepared an introduction, a link to the organisation search on the website is included. Each agency is responsible for keeping their own information up to date. The information will be reviewed at least once a year.
  • The Get to know the employees section has a list of all employees introduced on the site in an alphabetical order.
  • The Get to know the employers section has a list of all employers introduced on the site in an alphabetical order.

Recruitment service

The site hosts a home page for a recruitment service administrated by the State Treasury. This service shows all vacancies embedded in the frontpage of the site and in each employer's introductory page. Links to this service are found on the frontpage. Apart from the last one, these links take you to a different server, which is why they are not shown on the sitemap.
