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 assistants who help them with their daily client work in many ways. 

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. Trainee periods start every February and September.

For further information, please contact Riitta Vuorenvirta.


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 will send all applicants a link to one video interview question. You will have at least 2 days to make you video.


We review every application and video we receive.

Depending on the trainee programme, we will invite some applicates either to a recruiting day or directly to an individual interview. The recruiting day involves group assignments and individual interviews. You will be interviewed by your potential new supervisor, a member of our HR team and sometimes another possible future colleague. We will let you know who will be interviewing you in the invitation to the interview.

If you are not invited to the recruiting day or interview, we will contact you by e-mail and give you the opportunity to receive feedback on your application over the phone.

We will let all applicants who participated in a recruiting day or interview know the results of the recruitment process either over the phone or via e-mail.
