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 Darja Warma or 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.

After receiving the application, we will send a video question via e-mail to all applicants. We hope to receive replies to the question as soon as possible.  

We will invite some of the people who participated in the video interviews to a recruitment day at our offices. The recruitment day includes more information about working with us,  a group assignment and a face-to-face interview with the person responsible for the trainee programme and members of our HR team.

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