Trainee Assistants

What would our lawyers do without their assistants? Our trainee assistants either work directly with our lawyers, or act as an extra pair of hands for our assistants.

We need trainee assistants all year round. All of our lawyers work with an assistant who helps them with their daily client work in many ways. Each assistant typically works with three to five lawyers.

A typical day for one of our trainee assistants can include assisting a lawyer in drafting documents and making their meeting and travel arrangements. You are well suited to work as a trainee assistant if you have an energetic and positive attitude, excellent information technology skills, and are fluent in Finnish and English.

The traineeship is full-time.

For further information, please contact Heidi Pirhonen or Elina Kytömaa.


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.
