Young professionals


Every year, we offer opportunities to hundreds of young professionals in the form of summer jobs. Will you be one of our next creators of change?

We look for young talents who are eager to be part of our transformation journey, develop and grow with us and show initiative in innovating & creating ideas.

On top of that, we hope you share our values & passion of creating a healthier planet for our children. Together, we can create change!



At Neste, you will be given real projects and interesting work to do as well as the possibility to apply what you have learned in your studies. The experience you gain during your summer with Neste will be helpful both in your ongoing studies and in your future work life. You will also have the possibility to see what it is like to work in a global listed company where experience and high ambitions for the future come together.

By joining Neste, you also join our global trainee community of 400 young talents. Throughout the summer, our global #SummerWithNeste program entails a range of informative and inspiring events and activities that will:

  • Help you become better acquainted with Neste as a company
  • Support your growth and development as a young professional
  • Allow you to network with your fellow trainees and other Neste employees

Most of our summer jobs are at the Porvoo refinery and technology center and at the Neste headquarters in Espoo. Individual traineeship positions are also available elsewhere in Finland and in other Neste locations worldwide.

Summer jobs are available in all business areas – Oil Products, Renewable Products, Marketing & Services, and Engineering Solutions – as well as in innovation, R&D, finance, strategy, sustainability, human resources, legal affairs, ICT, marketing, communications etc.  Your studies can be in related areas such as science, technology, business or management.

At Neste, all trainees are students at the time of applying for the summer job. Some graduate already before the traineeship starts, some continue their studies after the summer.

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 trainees on this site!
