Gap Year in Finland
For the English-speaking traveller, opportunities for work in Finland include administration and hospitality roles at city hotels, ski resorts or even Santa’s Village. You could provide childcare at a ski chalet or lead walking holidays in Finland’s national parks.
Finland is also part of the EU au pair scheme, placing students with families who need help with childcare, in return for accommodation and food. Gaining some experience in the UK before you leave could net you a better placement –and higher wages.
