During the programme, you can also negotiate about a possibility to write your thesis for us or work abroad either for AFRY or due to the exchange studies. The Future Stars will be employed in AFRY offices all around Finland. We have positions mainly for students of engineering and natural sciences.

Following themes will be discussed in the Training Days:

  • Work at AFRY + Project environment

In addition to Training Days, AFRY Future Star will be given some tasks where one can reflect the learnt lessons and deepen the understanding of discussed topics.

Each Star gets their own AFRY tutor, additionally supported by a wide group of top experts from various fields. The tasks and content of the programme will be defined for each Star based on their individual situation, skills and interests.

We announce the commencement of the application period on our website and through our social media channels.
