It is also a good idea to take a look at your industry's salary statistics. There are also other parties, such as Statistics Finland, that publish salary statistics.

PERSONAL SALARY advice

TEK experts also provide personal salary advice for TEK members. You can contact us, for instance, when you are thinking about a suitable salary request for a job you are applying for, when you want to check your current income level or need tips for salary negotiations. In legal matters related to salaries (e.g. holiday bonuses, holiday pay, paying salary at the end of an employment relationship, overtime compensations), you can contact our lawyers.

You can contact our salary experts by e-mail at palkat@tek.fi or by telephone on +358 (0)9 229 121. We will respond to your e-mail as soon as possible, usually within 1–2 working days. If your matter is urgent, please mention this in your request for contact. Please contact our salary counselling service in good time before a salary discussion or a job interview, if possible. 

You will receive quicker service if you provide some background information about yourself and your job or the job you’re applying for, such as description of the job (title, duties, position, supervisory responsibilities), information about your employer (industry, number of employees), location of the work place, and description of your education and work experience. 

"I was nearing my probation period and needed advice on salary negotiations. I contacted TEK via email. TEK experts responded very promptly with a detailed explanation. Salary negotiation has always been a tough thing to handle for me (even after working in Finland for over 6 years in 3 different companies). After receiving TEK's support, I felt more confident as I went to the negotiation room better informed on handling my situation. "
