For Individuals


Mark, Paul, Jiuliano and Michael have lived and worked in Etelä-Pohjanmaa for years, decades. Over that time we have built up a substantial number of friends, colleagues, partners and contacts. As a member of WIISE, you too can access that network.

This could be as soon as you move to Etelä-Pohjanmaa or when you are planning to make a change in your work situation. Whether you need advice, guidance or a job, if we can make useful introductions we will be happy to do so.

Not sure if we can help? Reach out and ask.

    • Finding hobbies
    • Enlarging their contact network
