Regulatory Affairs (RA) is responsible for obtaining approval from the health authorities for all new Novo Nordisk products. Further, we are responsible for keeping our marketed products up to the state of the art. Our 230 people are closely engaged with most Novo Nordisk business areas in Denmark as well as internationally. In short a job in RA means working independently with responsibility across the Novo Nordisk organization.

As an RA Graduate you will be working on specific projects in a global environment both in head quarters and in one of Novo Nordisk’s affiliates. You will undertake three rotations of eight months, while following an individual development plan. One of the rotations will be in an affiliate in or outside Europe.Our aim is to develop key people with extensive knowledge of our RA processes who will help us reach our ambitious goals for the future.

Examples of the challenges taken on by current Graduates in RA are compiling and conducting critical reviews of documents for approval of one of our products in a major country and running LEAN projects in the administrative area.


To join the RA programme, you’ll need to have successfully completed a Master degree in a relevant field within natural science, such as pharmacy, chemical engineering, biology, biotechnology or equivalent. We’re looking for people with an international profile who are performance-oriented, outgoing and willing to learn from others. You should be able to work as part of a team – but also to work independently and be prepared to take ownership over your own projects.
