Junior Trainees

If you see a cheerful person dashing down the halls of our office with a box in hand, it's probably one of our junior trainees.

If you are a law student in the early stages of your studies, we would like to offer you the opportunity to get to know the day-to-day routines of our firm. Our junior trainees assist our lawyers and business services in a wide variety of tasks—and usually save the day with their timely help.

As a junior trainee your work will be fast-paced and vary from day to day, and you’ll benefit from the ability to adapt quickly. Your day could start off couriering documents to authorities. The day might then continue by rushing the firm’s mail to the post office and then printing out and binding a book’s worth of documentation. You may also be asked to man the front desk or help our caterers set up a conference room for an important meeting. In addition to having the adaptability of a chameleon, you are well suited to work as a junior trainee if you are a good team player with a service-minded, positive attitude and a good sense of humour.

Junior trainees work part time during the academic year, usually 2 days a week. During the summer, the work is full time.

If you think that Castrén & Snellman could be right for you, fill out our trainee application form and tell us about yourself. We read every application we get and pick some of the applicants for interviews.

The first interview stage is via video. In the video interview, you film yourself answering a few questions that we will send you by e-mail. You will have 2–4 days to make your video.

We will invite about one-third of the people who participated in the video interviews to a face-to-face interview at our offices. At this stage, you will be interviewed by a member of our HR team and the person responsible for the trainee programme you’re applying to.

We will let all applicants know either over the phone or via e-mail when the new trainees have been selected.
