Sponda – Trainee, Asset Management

Positionen kräver engelska kunskaper.

Have you ever considered the opportunities having a career in real estate investment could offer?
Now is the time to do it as we have the perfect opening for a trainee in our Asset Management team.

Join our Asset Management team of nine professionals as a trainee and take the first steps of your career in commercial real estate investment under the guidance of some of the best in our business – in a company that doesn’t just offer its clients their best, but also looks after your wellbeing, personal growth and development.

Our real estate investment positions are modern-day roles requiring a hybrid skill set, so with us you won’t be pigeon-holed or become an expert in just one skill. Your horizons will be broadened to encompass e.g. real estate economics, technology, and finance – providing you the perfect opportunity to recognize the areas that are of particular interest for you.

How does that sound?

Goals for your traineeship period

  • Learn the fundamentals and skills to succeed in commercial real estate investment
  • Learn the methods and thinking behind our trade
  • Take on independent and responsible tasks already from the beginning of your traineeship
  • By learning through hands-on experience, gain valuable insight in different areas of real estate investment that might even help you set the course of your future career

Your education and prior work experience are the foundation upon which the traineeship will be built on. Our workplace ethic is focused on learning and helping you to develop your abilities to take the next step in your career. Hopefully you would grow to later become our permanent colleague.

So what do we do?

We are one of Finland’s leading real estate asset management companies. We specialise in commercial property ownership, management, development, and letting in the major cities of Finland.

Our investment business is based on high-quality customer experience, tailored client solutions, active property management, and real estate acquisitions and sales.
