Starting your career and looking for a place to develop your skills? We can offer an inspiring kickstart for future professionals at Neste. We value fresh insights and ideas and therefore offer summer jobs, internships and other entry-level job opportunities to young talents still studying or who have recently graduated. After all, different types of young professionals with their skills and thoughts are an important part of our transformation journey, and a unique opportunity to understand how the future talents see working life. 

Our challenging work to create a healthier planet for our children provides a meaningful workplace for you to utilize the skills you have acquired during your studies and learn more.

We are developing ways to engage young professionals in different locations and junior positions. Some business areas have their own internship programs and may offer thesis opportunities.

Summer trainees at Neste

Summer trainees are an established part of our company culture in Finland. Every year, we offer numerous opportunities for young professionals in the form of summer jobs e.g. in our refinery and terminals, research and development, and Espoo headquarters. Every now and then there are also some individual internship positions open in other Neste locations worldwide.

Trainees get the opportunity to learn and grow, suggest and create new ideas, gain valuable experience in an international environment for the ongoing studies and future work life, and build a network with other trainees and colleagues. For you, it is a way to develop and find areas of interest, and for us, an important channel in finding future talents and learning from them.
