How to become a part of the Krogerus community?

We have four different trainee programmes which are intended for law students, and we recruit about 70 students on an annual basis. The Associate Trainee programme is the most important recruitment channel for permanent lawyer positions. Every year we welcome over 20 permanent legal professionals to Krogerus through the Associate trainee programme. From time to time, we also hire more experienced talents.

We already have 260 of us working at Krogerus, and the number is constantly growing! Will you be our new colleague and one of us?

You, a future Krogerusian?

In an employee, we value preciseness, resilience, solid analytical skills, and an ability to communicate clearly in both Finnish and English. Swedish and other language skills are also highly valued. Most important to us is your motivation and courage to develop as a professional and the willingness to meet new challenges as a part of our team.

For us, there is no single recipe for success. We appreciate a wide range of work experience in the legal field, a keen interest in business law and the eagerness to learn. Previous working experience from a law firm is not required. You come to Krogerus to learn!

What is the recruitment process like?

Our recruitment process for each trainee (programme) position involves one meeting with a recruitment team and a translation or information retrieval task for selected candidates. Throughout the process, you’ll get to meet your potential future colleagues. Students are employed for a fixed term.

For permanent positions, we arrange two to three interviews and a personality/motivation test. Our goal is to make decisions shortly after the interview. We are also happy to offer you feedback on your performance and application documents.

In addition to learning experience and challenging tasks, we offer you a wide range of benefits and events to support your wellbeing, networking, and development, including for example:

  • sport, lunch and culture benefits and free entry to our private gym including group exercise classes
  • internal trainings and seminars
  • monthly breakfasts, personnel events, and leisure club activities
  • tutoring and feedback rounds
