We are always eager to welcome new like-minded, talented and enthusiastic colleagues to complement our team.

We recruit law students year-round and welcome applications from first year to final stage students. We provide our trainees with a tailor-made traineeship based on each individual’s personal situation and preferences instead of participation in a formal trainee program tied to specific times of the year. To enable our trainees becoming genuine team members in the day-to-day project work, we encourage full-time traineeships.

Trainee candidates

What kind of experience do you expect from trainee candidates?
Prior work experience is a plus but not an absolute requirement. International experience – through studies, work or volunteering – is also an advantage.

 

Required or favored languages?
We expect all of our applicants to have good language skills, both oral and written. Excellent English and Finnish skills are essential, and Swedish skills are a plus.

 

What kind of value do you put on grades?
Good grades often reflect ambition, diligence and eagerness to learn which are all qualities we look for in our team members. Hence, we do value good grades in our recruitment process but we always consider each application and applicant as a whole.

 

What else do you value in an employee?
We look for genuine team players equipped with an entrepreneurial spirit, a can-do attitude and a good work ethic. Our ideal candidate would be a solution-oriented and ambitious person who enjoys working in a fast-paced environment with colleagues who are leaders in their respective fields.

Employment

Students are employed for a fixed-term.

Our benefits include lunch as well as sport and cultural vouchers.

Our compensation level follows the recommendations of the Association of Finnish Lawyers.

 

Recruitment

Instead of hiring resources, we seek for colleagues who share our values, enjoy our culture and truly want to be part of our team. We therefore do not have formal trainee programs or application periods. Instead, we accept applications throughout the year and process each application individually. The timing and length of each traineeship is agreed upon with the trainee candidate.

We recruit around 10–14 students on an annual basis and arrange 2–3 interview rounds in each recruitment process.

 

How to apply

If you are interested in applying for a trainee position, please send your application (together with your CV, graduate diploma where applicable, transcript of studies, matriculation examination certificate and high school diploma) to recruitment@avance.com.
