The Supply Chain Graduate programme is anchored with the Product Supply business area of Novo Nordisk. Product Supply employs more than 8,000 people across production sites in Denmark, United States, France, Brazil, China and Japan and is, among other things, responsible for production of all of our products according to market demand. In recent years, Product Supply has been undergoing a process of change; including delivering productivity improvements on key processes by implementing an extensive LEAN programme.

As a Supply Chain Graduate you will be working in specific projects across several areas within Product Supply and supporting staffs functions in both Denmark and at one of our production facilities abroad. You will undertake three rotations of eight months each and spend one of these outside Denmark. Our aim is to develop key people with extensive knowledge of our supply chain including the following areas; sourcing, production, lean, logistics and support functions.

Each Supply Chain Graduate will follow an ambitious individual development plan as well as take responsibility for the planning of training & development activities for the international group of Supply Chain Graduates you will be part of.


To join the Supply Chain programme, you’ll need a Master’s degree in a relevant field and an excellent academic record. You’ll need an analytical mindset and a lot of drive, as well as a results-oriented approach to your work and a keen eye for quality. You should be open to change and have at least six months of international experience prior to starting the programme.
