When did you start working at Hannes Snellman?

I joined Hannes Snellman in February 2018. I work as an HR Coordinator in the HR team in Helsinki.

What is included in a “normal” working day?

One of my main responsibilities is our trainee programmes and trainee recruitment, so whenever we have vacant trainee positions and are recruiting, I am most likely going through applications or conducting interviews. At least some parts of my “normal” working days are usually also reserved for planning and organising various different student events and excursions. In addition, I often participate in these events myself, as I love to meet students from all over Finland (and sometimes from other countries as well)! Often, my days also consist of updating our social media channels and sitting in one or more meetings. Oh, and one thing is for sure—I always start my day with a cup of coffee.

Can you describe your working group?

In the HR team in Helsinki, I have four lovely full-time colleagues, but we also work closely with Hannes Snellman’s HR team in Stockholm. However, I am lucky because due to the nature of my work, I get to co-operate closely with our firm’s trainees, lawyers, and other support groups such as Client Relations.

What do you like about your job and what do you wish could be improved?

I truly like everything about my job, but if I had to name only one thing, I would have to say it is collaborating and meeting with students on various occasions. I guess time is of the essence in every job, so more hours to a day is probably the only thing I could wish for (especially since it is so nice to be at work!).

Can you describe the Hannes Snellman culture?

In my opinion, Hannes Snellman’s employees are extremely driven, intelligent, and constantly wanting to improve both themselves and the firm, which further encourages everyone to do their very best. Therefore, I would definitely describe the culture as motivating. I have also been very impressed with how Hannes Snellman supports individual growth stories even though the company is big in size. We also have a lot of fun and laugh together, which makes it extra nice to come to work every day.
