The member companies of the Federation of the Brewing and Soft Drinks Industry want to support the employment of young people. In 2013, they will once again hire hundreds of summer employees. Summer jobs at Hartwall, Nokian Panimo, Olvi and Sinebrychoff have been in consistently high demand over the years. In recent years, breweries have received thousands of summer job applications every spring. This year is expected to be no different.

The brewing industry offers many and varied summer jobs for those over the age of 18 all over Finland. Most summer employees go into production and logistics to learn about the industry. Summer jobs are also available in laboratories, customer service, sales and administration.

“Summer is the hottest season of the year for the brewing industry – and a busy time at breweries. Summer employees enable the brewing industry to keep up with the demands of the season and ensure that we can supply enough summer drinks to consumers,” says Elina Ussa, Managing Director of the Federation of the Brewing and Soft Drinks Industry.

A summer job gives many young people their first encounter with real working life. It can have a long-lasting effect on their career and education choices. In a summer job, young people gain important knowledge and experience of working life and a variety of job tasks.

“For breweries, summer employees represent an investment in the future. A summer job can inspire a young person to enter the industry. Summer employees can turn into skilled professionals who contribute to the development of the industry. Many employees in the brewing industry started out in a summer job and became seasoned brewery professionals over the years,” says Ussa.
