Trainee Programme


One of the goals of the China Office of Finnish Industries is to encourage the study of China and the Chinese language in Finland as well as provide future China hands an opportunity to gain work experience. The China Office Analyst Trainee Programme is open to anyone enrolled in a Finnish institution of higher education and who aspires to a career in the China space.

The analyst trainee programme provides an opportunity to gather or deepen your China-related knowledge, and gain experience of analyst work. Our task is to draft high-quality assessments about the People’s Republic of China (PRC). We strive to keep our shareholders abreast of the PRC’s political-economic challenges, international role, and trade and investment policies. You will assist in the process of producing material for the shareholders, take part in organising events, and contribute to the day-to-day routines in the office.

The internship lasts for five months and is based on part-time employment. Trainees are expected to work alternatively three days and two days per week.

Intake of analyst trainees will take place twice a year in August and February.
