Salesforce Academy

Speed up your success story with Salesforce

The application period for the next Salesforce Academy is now open.

Salesforce is a globally leading cloud-based customer relationship management solution that brings companies and customers together. Salesforce is more than just a customer management system, though – it’s a universal customer experience and management tool, and much more besides. Now you have the chance to build a new digital success story in the Salesforce Ecosystem.

Previous Salesforce Academies have been great success stories: altogether 75 people have launched their careers within the Salesforce Ecosystem. 92% of the latest Academy participants got employment contract immediately after the training period. Participants’ feedback 4,4/5 also describes the success of the Academy.

Salesforce Academy is an excellent opportunity for anyone who is considering joining the extended Salesforce family and wants to take the fast lane in.

We train and recruit 25 new Salesforce professionals

We are launching our fourth Salesforce Academy recruitment program and we are looking for new motivated Salesforce professionals who are ready to take their career paths to the next level. Our aim is to train and recruit 25 new Salesforce professionals together with Salesforce partner and end-user organizations. Salesforce Academy is a labor market training organized by Saranen Consulting in close operation with Uusimaa ELY Center, TE Services and Salesforce.

People with business and ICT backgrounds wanted

The recruitment program is aimed at people with both ICT and business skills who are passionate about and interested in growing into the following roles, for example:

  • Salesforce admin
  • Salesforce tech-oriented business consultant
  • Salesforce developer
  • Salesforce marketing automation specialist

Please note that labor market trainings are primarily intended for adults who are unemployed or at risk of losing their jobs.

Companies are looking for new curious people with a can-do attitude, who are inspired by their work and ready to take a career leap into the Salesforce ecosystem – you don’t need to previous experience in Salesforce environment. You might have, for example, a technical or business background (in engineering, IT, commerce, etc.) through your work or interests. If you understand business processes and IT projects, that’s your advantage. If you have a burning desire to learn new things and to create a better customer experience, then you’re the person we are looking for. English language skills are required, as all the training sessions will be carried out in English. Several employers also require fluent Finnish.

Looking forward for the new programs

The world is changing faster than ever before. Every individual and company need to adapt to serve their customers better. Customer success is an important and key part of Salesforce’s success – if our customers won’t succeed, neither will we. Together with our ecosystem, we have succeeded in being agile and innovative and building numerous success stories in Finland. We want to keep moving in the right direction and are now looking for new curious, persistent, excited Trailblazers to join our growing Ohana* family. Come on board and develop the Salesforce ecosystem with us!

For me personally, the program provided me a starting point to redirect my career to a new and dare to say more exciting path than where I was heading before. I can recommend Salesforce Academy to everyone who is thinking is ready for a change and also ready to take up the challenge! Although the program gives you some tools and learning, as usual, the biggest part is in yourself to work hard and enjoy the journey the fullest!
