We are now looking for Knowledge Management Trainees to start in our team in the end of summer or in the beginning of fall of 2019!
Are you the KM Trainee that we are looking for?
We are looking for two Knowledge Management Trainees to work part-time in Dittmar & Indrenius’ legal information service as colleagues of our current KM Trainees Tiina and Matias. Tasks of the KM Trainees include indexing legal publications, legal information retrieval and various legal monitoring and cataloguing assignments. In addition to learning legal substance matters, the position provides the opportunity to learn legal knowledge management skills beneficial in any lawyer profession. D&I’s legal information service works in cooperation with all our practice areas and lawyers. During their traineeship, our KM Trainees obtain an exceptionally wide outlook on all aspects of business law, while they also become familiar with the versatility of attorneys’ work and assignments.
Our KM Trainee Jemina, who is moving abroad after this summer, tells about her KM Trainee experience:
“When I started my KM-traineeship as an uncertain second-year law student, I would not have been even able to imagine how much I would gain from it. During the past 1,5 years I have gotten to apply the theory learned at the uni to practical, complex juridical problems and to work widely with almost all the fields of law and with all of our practice areas. My work assignments have been meaningful and the work of the trainees is truly valued at Dittis – our lawyers thank the library daily for our help and expertise. It is truly rewarding to get to see how one’s own input has affected the end result being send to the customer.
The best thing as a KM-Trainee has been to get to challenge myself constantly with interesting commissions, knowing still that I can always ask for help from our lawyers and to ball ideas with our skilled library team. This traineeship provides extensive tools to all juridical work that I can end up doing in the future – not to mention the improvement of my grades and how painless writing thesis with this work experience behind me will be. I can warmly recommend applying to KM-Trainee at Dittis if you want to develop as a detective, problem-solver and teamworker in a fantastic community!”
Success in the KM Trainee position requires energetic and diligent approach to work, good learning abilities and basic knowledge of different areas of law and the sources of law (2-3 years of law studies). The task also requires excellent skills in Finnish and good skills in Swedish and English. First and foremost we are looking for a great personality, who possesses a team player’s heart in addition to professional ambition.
KM Trainees work in our office’s legal information service as a part of the KM Team, which our Knowledge Manager Inari Kinnunen leads. The working time is 2-3 days per week on the average, and the working hours are arranged flexibly within the KM Team. We wish that the KM Trainees would be ready to commit to employment of approximately 1,5 years, because of the nature of the position. It would be ideal if you could start working with us during August or September.
