I wouldn't be too worried about the language, my father (who is Irish and first lived in the States for about 20 years before moving to Finland 25 years ago) has been here for quite a while and still does not speak even close to fluent Finnish but he's been fine with English. Being social should help a lot.

Good luck and hope you don't get too depressed with the darkness of the Finnish winter
Well apparently a lot of foreigners are working right now at Vuosaari harbour, as for the place to stay i'm looking right now downtown Helsinki as well as Espoo and Vantaa (even if i'm a bit concerned about the distance between Bboth cities and Vuosaari)
