During the F15® Graduate Programme, you will find yourself in three jobs within different business groups and funtional areas. You enter at least one international position in one of Arla's subsidiaries e.g. in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, UK, Germany, Poland, Argentina, USA, China or Dubai. Also, at least one of your positions will be at Arla's headquater in Aarhus, Denmark. Although you have a master’s degree within a specific field e.g. finance, technology or marketing, we will challenge you to assume a position within a different field to make you gain a broad experience of Arla before you set your mind on a specific career.
Team trainings accelerate your development
The F15® Graduate Programme begins in September 2013 with a thorough introduction course to the various fundamentals of the Arla value chain - what we call ‘From Cow to Consumer’.
During the Graduate Programme you will attend team trainings with your F15 colleagues. Arla designs the team trainings targeted to you and closely linked to your role in the organisation. The training enhances your performance and people skills to boost your professional and personal development within business strategy, organ-isational understanding, project management and leadership competence.
To anchor your new skills, you will conduct a team project with your F15® colleagues. This project is an add-on to your job and you will involve and report to stakeholders from across Arla.
Performance reviews to keep you on track
At the end of each job rotation, your host manager will evaluate your performance and behaviour in the current position: Did you reach the objectives and how? This input will inspire you to work with your Personal Development Plan and bring focus to your strengths and areas for improvement.
A Top50 manager will be your personal sponsor
Throughout the F15® Graduate Programme, you will be coached by a personal sponsor from top mangement level who will guide you on your Personal Development Plan and help you build strong networks with colleagues and decisionmakers.
