Kick-start your leadership career with Arla Foods
Looking for an international career in leadership at our state-of-the-art production sites, producing famous dairy brands like Lurpak and Castello? And are you ready to participate in business-critical projects from day one?
This is your chance to put your leadership potential and theoretical production knowledge to the test as part of our 2-year intensive production management graduate programme (PMGP)!
It’s time to define the future of dairy
At Arla Foods, we strive to push each other forward to meet the growing global demand for dairy and to make the industry sustainable with respect to both people and the environment. To do so, we need talented graduates who want to take part in realising our ambitious Future26 strategy directly at our production sites.
A 2-year leadership programme at Arla’s dairy sites
You can look forward to a professional, tailor-made programme that will introduce you to the wide range of the challenges that we face in a high-volume, fast-paced production environment. An environment where our production leaders need to make quick decisions in response to often unexpected and complex situations.
The programme will take you through 3 different rotations at 2 of our European dairy sites – either in Denmark, Sweden, UK, Germany, Finland or the Netherlands. We will assign you to the local sites where we see the best fit for your development opportunities.
Accelerate your growth with Arla
No matter your location, you will get to work on exciting projects – for instance related to lean optimisations, sustainable production and team management. You will join assigned leadership training camps and receive coaching and mentoring from senior stakeholders to ensure your professional growth.
Are you our next production management graduate?
By September 2022, you will have graduated with either a bachelor’s or master’s degree, preferably within dairy, food science, engineering or a production-related subject.
We are looking for people who enjoy challenging the status quo, hunting the root cause and providing new solutions with passion, energy and empathy. Fast learners with strong analytical skills who can perform in a fast-paced environment. In addition, it is essential that you:
- Have the drive to deliver results and demonstrate the Arla Leadership Behaviours
