Vallila provides a valuable and colourful first experience in working life

”I’ve worked as a telephone operator, hooked and folded curtains in the sewing workshop, packed ready curtains and installed curtains,” Oona Niemi lists the summer job tasks she has had in Vallila.

Oona, 22, works at Vallila’s reception in Nilsiänkatu and at the customer service for online shop in the summer 2016. She already has experience with Vallila during several summers: Oona worked for Vallila for the first time when she was 15 years old.

Vallila offers summer jobs for all the children of its employees if they are more than 15 years old. Vallila employs 10-20 summer employees every summer. In summer 2016, there are altogether 14 summer employees or summer interns working at Vallila. They work in administration, marketing and the online shop, project planning, wholesale planning, sewing workshop, warehouse and Vallila shop at Stockmann. This summer, Vallila employs three young people using the summer voucher. Summer employees are able to do interesting and versatile tasks, and they are not just the ones responsible for photocopies. Vallila is a medium-sized and agile company: a new employee will quickly get to know the other people in the house and become involved in the hustle and bustle in Vallila.
This summer, Oona has been particularly excited that she has been able to learn and do new things in the Vallila online shop.

”Vallila teaches you about customer service and resourcefulness. It is never boring to come to work. Vallila is also aesthetically pleasing, it is definitely not a boring office.”

A great place to work, Oona sums up her experience during her summers at Vallila. After this summer, she will begin her studies in Biomedicine in Turku. As a girl, the young woman dreamed of being pathologist. It remains to be seen how biomedicine and the summers spent with colourful interior fabrics will come together.

Vallila wants to support the employment of young people and offer youngsters their first job, if possible, for example in the form of a summer job. Other forms of experiencing working life are TET work experience in lower secondary school, longer internship periods and writing their final thesis. There are interns both from secondary and third-level education centres, and the internships usually last 2-6 months. This year, Vallila has had interns from Aalto University, University of Helsinki, Lahti Institute of Design, Omnia and Helsinki Business College.
