  • Noora Räsänen, Investment Analyst

    ”I initially applied to NREP’s Investment Intern program as I was eager to get exposure to the real estate industry and private equity transactions. What really impressed me was the atmosphere at NREP – I was welcomed as a full team member from day one and my colleagues were genuinely keen to support my development throughout the internship, also offering me opportunities to take responsibility in my work. ”

  • Milja Lempinen, Investment Intern

    ”One of the best things at NREP for me has been the aspect that even though I have primarily worked in our tight-knit investment team, I have also gotten to do projects and tasks more broadly with different teams and people. This has enabled me to learn a lot about the PERE industry and NREP as a company, on top of gaining experience in the investment work itself. In addition, I truly value the amount of support and coaching I have received during the internship – it has definitely accelerated my development!”

  • Julius Alanne, Investment Analyst

    ”Three things made me want to rejoin NREP after my internship: firstly opportunity to work in small and agile deal teams with loads of responsibility, secondly the healthy and fun working culture and finally NREP’s innovativeness in offering cutting-edge real estate products in the Nordic market.”

  • Markus Nieminen, Investment Intern

    ”I decided to join NREP because it stands apart from most real estate investors by developing its own concepts, such as Noli and Logicenters. I was interested in the NREP mindset of developing new concepts and services in the field of real estate. All in all, NREP provides resources of a large investor, the atmosphere of an ambitious market-grower and a team that helps one another to perform. ”
