New Challenges & Ideas

Students & graduates

At Arla Foods we are proud to have many students and graduates working with us. We like the energy and new ideas that students bring to our Company, and we are happy to provide students the opportunity to explore theories in a real-life and practical context, and at the same time give them a chance to build up their personal network.

Please note that this section for students and graduates is only in English. Dig into the schemes and programmes that we offer to students across our business:

Internships at Arla

Arla aims to continuously offer students the opportunity to come work with us during their studies – e.g. in the form of an internship, if this is part of their formal university education. As requirements and timings from the universities are often country-specific, we urge students to contact their local Arla Foods HR department.

To find out more about being an intern at Arla, please visit this website.

Student jobs

We have a large number of student workers and this is indeed of benefit to both the student and Arla.  All vacancies are published on our website, so please follow our career site or activate a job agent if you are interested in getting a student job with us.
