Silk Road Journeys
An Intimate Look at Life in Finland

Silk Road Journeys is Now Live!

We recognize the courage and determination it takes to start a new life in a foreign country, and we want to support you every step of the way. That’s why we’ve launched our interview series, “Silk Road Journeys”, which provides an intimate look at the experiences of individuals who have already made the transition to life and work in Finland.

Our series aims to help minimize the fears and uncertainties that come with moving to a new country. By giving you a first-hand look at what life in Finland is like, we hope to provide some reassurance and alleviate worries you may have before arrival.

In our first episode, “Arriving in Finland,” we follow Aiken and Josephine’s experiences with the Silk Road recruitment process. They recently arrived in Finland from the Middle East and share their insights into what it’s like to settle into a new workplace and home. We discuss the challenges they faced and the support they received from the Silk Road team, providing a realistic and personal account of what to expect when moving to Finland.

Our future episodes will focus on various aspects of work-life and personal life, with the goal of offering a comprehensive understanding of what life in Finland is like. Whether you’re curious about cultural differences, social etiquette, or work-life balance, our series is designed to help you feel more informed and prepared for your new life in Finland.

At Silk Road, we understand that the decision to move to a new country is a significant one, and we are committed to supporting you throughout the entire process. We hope that our interview series will provide you with the information and reassurance you need to make an informed decision and transition smoothly to your new life in Finland.

    No, all foreign nurses from outside of the European Union start as assistant nurses here in Finland.While working as an assistant nurse you can then take your nurse registration but you will need to have a language level in Finnish of at least B1.
