What makes an F15® Graduate?

In additional to having the profile as described above, you want pursue a career in a global, farmer-owned FMCG-company in the long run. It is imperative that you are a university graduate with either a Bachelor or a Master degree from any educational background which you finished no longer than two years ago.

You should have previous work experience from either a fulltime or student job, internships or volunteer work. Furthermore, you are to some extent globally mobile, have the commitment to make a difference in a diverse environment.

Fluency in English as well as international experience are imperative criteria to join the F15 graduate programme.


I was looking for a graduate programme in a global company that will give me the opportunity to learn and develop internationally. Arla’s emphasis on building and grooming its future leaders also attracted me to a great extent. Moreover, the rotational nature of job functions and locations fitted my desire to explore and challenge myself. 

I also really admired the well-defined structure and organization of the programme. Lastly, the established and proven history and results of the F15 programme really convinced me. 


The reasoning behind my choice to apply for the F15® Graduate Pro-gramme is threefold. Firstly, unlike many other traineeships, this pro-gramme offers me the chance to work on projects across a wide range of functional areas such as Marketing, Finance and HR. 

Considering the fact that I have not yet figured out what direction to go into, I see this as a great opportunity to be exposed to and learn about a variety of areas. 

Secondly, it is unique in that it is one of the few graduate schemes that is truly international. Having studied International Business, this was one of my priorities when making a shortlist. 

Thirdly, Arla puts a great emphasis on training and support. In addition to getting assigned a buddy, a mentor and a professional coach, we will have several training modules focused on leadership development. All in all, I believe the F15® Graduate Programme will allow us to grow fast and make a real impact!
