Sirpa Hartikainen

Financial Specialist

As a financial specialist, I provide service to our financial team’s external and internal clients confidentially, accurately and considerately. On a daily basis, I am in contact, not only with our own employees, but also with our suppliers and clients relating to expense and invoicing matters. It is a great pleasure to regularly meet different people through my work, some of them in person and some of them digitally. I hope that those who I interact with also enjoy our meetings.

Our financial team, consisting of six persons, is responsible for the entire financial administration of Castrén & Snellman. My own responsibility area includes handling purchase, expense and travel invoices as well as invoicing. In addition to my daily routine work, I also handle urgent and sometimes surprising duties. In such cases, the rest of the financial team is a great help to me. I can trust in the support and competence of our team.

The reason I applied for this job at Castrén & Snellman in the spring of 2014 was the firm’s values: I also believe in these same values and I can identify with them. It is great to be part of the ‘Castrén Spirit’, to be another new link in the long chain of our firm’s history, to meet wonderful and friendly people, and to work together for our clients.

I graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and in 2020 with a Bachelor of Business Information Technology degree. Before my current job, I worked in the financial administration at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, SOK Palveluässä as well as at Helin & Co Architects. I also have work experience in customer service and in industry.
