Join us!

For over a year, we’ve worked with a steady stream of the Finland’s best growth company CEO's and founders. We’re aiming to be global but we are proud of our roots and start with Finland. We are real, but ambitious. We believe in feeling proud, but staying humble. Accepting others for who they are. And while the others know us as a psychological coaching company with a never-ending focus on the customer, we think of ourselves as something more. If that sounds good to you—then we hope you’ll join us. Currently we are looking for Performance Psychologists to coach our clients.

What do we value?

01 Growth

In Laavu, growth is everything. We aim for the growth of the client, the coaches and Laavu itself. We are ambitious and strive for continuous improvement...

02 Boldness

...This  sometimes requires crazy boldness. We are not afraid to take risks and step outside our own comfort zone, because we know that the greatest things are happening there...

03 Vulnerability

...We also want to create a work environment where risk-taking is easy and safe. In Laavu, you can be truly yourself without unnecessary roles, as we believe that showing your own insecurity and vulnerability is courage at its best...

04 Integrity

...However, we do not compromise on certain matters and that is professional quality and integrity. The customer of Laavu can always trust that our coaching is in line with the latest research. That is why we also want to invest in the training and development of our coaches.

What does Performance Psychologist do?

Laavu is a new type of company providing psychological services for growth companies and startups. We focus on individual executive coaching, but our services also include e.g. co-founder coaching, work community mediation, training and workshops. The themes in individual coaching are diverse and range from a variety of leadership challenges to the leader’s own wellbeing. The key is to ensure coachees´ growth and psychological performance in the midst of their demanding work.

As a Performance Psychologist, your job is to walk alongside the client as their personal coach, and help them reach their goals. This includes both face-to-face coaching meetings twice a month and communication between meetings. We are known by our excellent client experience and  customer relations. This means that your role as a coach goes beyond the traditional 1:1 sessions, and includes strong relationship building with the coachee and their organisation.

Occasionally, you might also carry out group-based coaching and training. If you are interested in an employment relationship at Laavu, your job description is likely to be even broader. Depending on your interest, you can take part in developing Laavu as an organization, e.g. by creating content, conceptualizing and developing the service, or taking responsibility for, e.g. sales and marketing.
