The F15® Graduate Programme is a fast-track leadership programme that includes three different eight-month rotations. Each rotation will be in a new business area and geographical region and you will be responsible for either a project or a range of deliverables that are pivotal to our business strategy. From new market entries and product launches to supply chain optimisation, there is a wide range of functions and locations you will explore, making it possible for you to shape your own future career, while growing your strategic and functional skillset.
We will nurture your talent for becoming a future leader in Arla, and among other things, you will learn how to be a high-performer in a global, farmer-owned FMCG company.
The application window for 2018's F15® Graduate Programme is now open and the application deadline is January 7th 2018. Apply for the programme here.
Team trainings accelerate your development
The F15® Graduate Programme begins in September with a thorough introduction course to the various fundamentals of the Arla value chain - what we call ‘From Cow to Consumer’.
Being part of a leadership programme means that you will be invited to join assigned training weeks in international locations focusing on leadership skills, strategy, change and your own development. Besides that, on-the-job as well as functional trainings will be closely linked to your role in the organisation.
To anchor your new skills, you will conduct an innovation project with your F15® colleagues which you will pitch to Arla's executive management at the end of your programme.
Performance reviews to keep you on track
During and at the end of each 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.
Arla Talents as your personal Mentor
Throughout the F15® Graduate Programme, you will be coached by a personal mentor from our Talent Acceleration Programme (Senior Managers and Directors) who will guide you on your Personal Development Plan and help you build strong networks with colleagues and decision makers.
