The nation, officially known as the Republic of Finland, is rich in culture, opportunity, and variety. Finland is a nation of chances for professionals and people with diverse skill sets, ranking sixth on the list of Most Reputable Countries. In the aftermath of the epidemic, there is an urgent need to recruit personnel in the service and healthcare industries.

4. Cost of living in Finland

Ethiopia's cost of living is $732, which is 1.27 times less costly than the global average. Ethiopia scored 114th out of 197 nations in terms of cost of living and 149th in terms of quality of life.

In Ethiopia, the average after-tax earnings is $189, which is enough to meet living costs for 0.3 months.

Why does living in Ethiopia cost 3.9 times the average salary? Because we have a reference point of a developed nation lifestyle, and sustaining such a quality of living in certain least developed countries is difficult and costly. As a result, the expenses of living in Ethiopia for natives and foreigners varies dramatically.

Employee protection is Finland's main concern, hence employment laws have been tailored to protect and serve them. The Intra-Corporate Transfers Act was passed in 2018 in order to offer an effective method for transferring workers from third nations inside Finland and other EU countries. To dwell and work in any other EU member states, a single intra-corporate transferee permit is sufficient.

Since 2018, the new Seasonal Work Act has made it simpler to hire seasonal labor, particularly third-country nationals. Previously, no protections were given by Finnish statute.
