Job’d is an employment model created in the Migrant Youth Helsinki project. The model is based on the idea of creating new paid gigs for the youth to offer an opportunity for first job experiences and learning working life skills.
Work is easy to accept in Job’d: young people can accept gigs with a phone application that is also used to pay them. The worker receives their pay in two to three days from completing a gig, which is a good fit for the lives of young people between the ages of 15 and 20. The gigs in the application have been tailor-made to employ young immigrants. Currently, the application offers domestic help work and temporary jobs at different events.
