Why apply to FinVector?

 

As an employer, we offer you an international working environment at the highest peak of modern medicine production. Together with the rest of the team, you will help in developing our products to help people in need. Patient focus is one of the keynotes in our values:

  • Transparency: Clarity, openness and accountability.
  • Patient focus: Saving lives with reliable, safe and compliant products.
  • Empowerment: Confident, in control and clear on my decision rights.
  • Accountability: Performing in a value-added manner and owning the result.
  • Personal development: I own my personal development with the support of FinVector.
  • Team collaboration: Growing together as one team.

People spend most of their days at work and that's why we want to make our facilities as welcoming as possible. We offer our employees ergonomic working tools, silent offices and other spaces for teamwork or small meetings.

We support a healthy lifestyle and, for that reason, our Occupational healthcare covers more than the law requires - including a psychologist, physiotherapist, doctor, specialists and optician services. Our healthcare also provides support in lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking and losing weight. We offer employees sport and cultural balance and weekly floorball games. To support our great team spirit, we arrange 3-5 big events annually such as sauna, summer and Christmas parties as well as game nights!

Balancing work and family can be stressful and that's why we offer several benefits that are linked to working arrangements e.g. flexible working time, staying home to care for a sick child and working remotely.

FinVector also endorses its employee's voluntary education when it increases both their own and employer's know-how. We also have career paths that encourage our employees to develop themselves.
