Opportunity to Create Networks
Junior Trainees get to see how a law firm functions while also learning the related processes and practices. A Junior Trainee’s workday generally consists of various administrative tasks. In addition to working as our couriers, Junior Trainees e.g. help out at the reception and assist with event preparations and office hosting services. In a nutshell: our Junior Trainees provide support services to our entire office. In exchange, we provide our Junior Trainees with the opportunity to create networks at the very beginning stages of their studies and careers.
Our Junior Trainee team is tasked with ensuring that the daily life at the office flows smoothly. The team is comprised of nine enthusiastic law students at the beginning of their studies. Our more experienced trainees are always eager to welcome new trainees and to provide crucial support at the beginning of their traineeships. The Junior Trainee team has a great and supportive atmosphere.
Our Junior Trainees work, on average, two to three shifts per week Junior Trainees will organise their shifts together with their teams to ensure that no one needs to skip a class or an exam. In the summer, trainees are welcome to organise their shifts in a way that allows them to take more time off. In a nutshell, our shift system is very flexible in order to make it as easy as possible for our trainees to combine their studies with working part time.
Yes, you are free to join us!
We use job shadowing at different phases of our trainee programmes. What this means at Borenius is that a lower level trainee (e.g. a Junior Trainee) shadows another trainee from a more advanced programme (e.g. a KM Trainee) for a few days to get a feel for the other trainee’s tasks and team. Experiences with job shadowing have been overwhelmingly positive, and we have seen an increase in the number of trainees who are considering applying for a position in the next trainee programme.
The purpose of our trainee programmes is to get to know students and to provide them with the opportunity to create connections that are crucial for their future careers. For this purpose, we seek to create long-term relationships with students and to provide them with the best professional development and leadership available in the market. Our mission is also to help our trainees grow into the lawyers of tomorrow and to discover excellent future talent to add to our practice teams.
Job Shadowing for Students to Explore the Next Step on their Trainee Path
By participating in job shadowing, our trainees, who are still in the beginning of their trainee career paths, get a glimpse of the daily duties of our more advanced trainees. Job shadowing suits best for Junior and KM Trainees.
