Type: Graduate

View more

About the company:

Danish Crown is on a journey where we are moving up the value chain and working closer together with customers and consumers. For this we need graduates for whom sustainability and making a difference in the world is important. The Danish Crown Group is in an exciting strategy period, where focus is on growth and innovation.

About the role:

Two graduate tracks – Business Leadership & Production Leadership

The Graduate Programme offers two leadership tracks.

  • Business leadership is aimed at candidates who are interested in management and business leadership in a more general sense. For example, you may wish to head up a sales team even though you’re not trained in this field. As a business graduate, you will be solving tasks that are critical to our business. We expect you’re keen to take the lead and enjoy learning from others.
  • Production leadership is aimed at candidates who wish to become leaders at one of our production sites. To qualify for this track, you must have an interest within production and could have for example a degree in engineering, animal/food science, business or something else. As a production graduate, you will be solving tasks that are critical to our daily operations. For this track, we’re also looking for ambitious candidates who are keen to take the lead. And ‘learning by doing’ has to be an approach you enjoy.

Requirements:

The Graduate Programme is perfect for those who wish to be future leaders. We are looking for candidates who have:

  • a bachelor’s or master’s degree, completed within the past two years (we accept applications from candidates who are about to finish their bachelor’s or master’s degree);
  • relevant work experience (while this is not mandatory, it’s definitely an advantage); and
  • good analytical and communication skills, and a high proficiency in English (written and spoken).
