「マジで人手が足りなくてさ……なっつんも中学校通い始めてから捕まりづらくなるし……ま、口は悪いけど作業は正確だから、仕上げは重宝してるよ」

The speaker wanted a person nicknamed なっつん to help her finish her work.

Hi. What would be the function of the に? Is like “use なっつん usefully for the finish”? Like AをBに使う?

Thank you.

    The particle/postposition に in the construction above is used to stating the purpose of an action.
    "[Someone=The speaker] wa [someone else=なっつん] o [shiage] ni wa chōhō shite iru."
    '[The speaker] always uses [Nattsun] as a convenient tool for doing the finishing process.'
    * The speaker is talking about Nattsun in a disparaging way. (see 口は悪いけど[...] above)
