TALENT AMBASSADOR – JONATHON MURPHY
I’m Jonathon, originally from the UK, but fast becoming a local ’turkulainen’.
My journey from North East England to Turku was a leap into the unknown – I had never even heard of Turku before my wife applied for a job here! Fortunately, the city welcomed me with open arms, and across the last four years I have been a student, an intern, an employee, a university ambassador, and a regular at Finnish language classes.
Currently I work for the City of Turku as a Talent Advisor on the Talent Boost project, using my experiences to help improve the integration process for new international arrivals, something I am truly passionate about! Away from the office, you can usually find me on the football pitch, reading by the riverside or learning Finnish nursery rhymes with my 2-year-old daughter.
Really looking forward to sharing my story with you all, and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you want to find out more!
