Every year Neste offers hundreds of summer traineeships to students in different fields. Most of Neste’s summer jobs are at the Porvoo refinery and technology center, at the Naantali refinery, and at the Neste headquarters in Espoo. Individual traineeship positions are also available elsewhere in Finland and in our foreign locations. Summer positions are available in all business areas, for production, laboratory and office work:

 ​​Oil Products
Renewable Products
 Marketing & Services
Neste Engineering Solutions

In addition to these, summer jobs are offered in Common Functions, including economic affairs, strategy, human resources, legal affairs, communications, technology and research. Your studies can be in related areas such as chemistry (or another science), technology, economics, or management (such as Human Resources, for example). We also offer positions of a few weeks in length to school-age students who want to become acquainted with working life.

The pay for summer trainees is in accordance with the collective agreement. We are committed to giving our trainees a satisfying job and a fair level of remuneration. In  addition, we are constantly working to provide them with an appropriate introduction to their job and guidance where needed, and we always treat them fairly and equally.

We have been part of the Responsible Summer Jobs campaign in Finland – and its commitment to offering quality summer employment to young people – for several years. You can read about the experiences of previous summer workers on this site!

We want you to get the most out of your summer job with Neste, so you will be given real and interesting work to do. You will have the opportunity to apply what you have learned in your studies in your work here. We try to provide the best possible induction process, and at the start of their traineeship, each summer worker is given a comprehensive introduction to Neste as a company, to their job, and to the tools and other equipment they will be using. A personal instructor is appointed for each summer trainee for the entire season. The experience you gain during your summer with Neste will be helpful both in your ongoing studies and for your future work life.

It is important to us that summer trainees network among themselves as well so that they can get a fuller view of Neste and the operations across our different business areas. Apart from organizing events for trainees during the summer, we also encourage summer interns to be active themselves. Summer trainees likewise arrange a variety of joint activities each year.
