We are now looking for Knowledge Management Trainees to start in our team in the beginning of summer or fall of 2020!
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 Matias, Riikka and Emilia. Tasks of 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 Tiina tells about her KM Trainee experience: “Dittmar’s library is the place where you can learn everything about legal information search. The best thing as a KM Trainee has been the possibility to work with almost every practice area at Dittmar. This way I have been able to challenge myself with the complex legal problems and found the fields of law I am interested in. It has been very easy to combine work and studies. Moreover, the work assignments have been meaningful and my learning curve has been steep since my starting date. Dittis offers a place where you can develop your legal information search and problem solving skills in an environment filled with extensive training, challenging assignments and supportive atmosphere. It is also motivating that the work of KM Trainees is genuinely valued and our work contribution can be seen in the legal advices provided to clients. In addition, there is a great and positive working atmosphere at Dittis, which means that not a single working day lacks humour and good vibes.”
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. Starting time of the traineeship will be agreed upon flexibly; we wish that the new KM Trainees could start working between May and September 2020.
