Internship Programme

It’s time to define the future of dairy

Want to run your own project and build a professional international network within one of the world’s largest FMCG companies?

At Arla Foods, we strive to unlock the highest potential in each other while working together to define the future of dairy. We push each other forward to meet the growing global demand for dairy and to make the industry sustainable with respect to people and the environment.

To do so, we need the best talents with a desire to take part in our transformation journey. Meanwhile, we’ll be just as invested in your personal and professional development.

“As an intern, you get a lot of freedom and responsibility, which means you get to have an active part in where your journey will take you and what you will learn.”
- Christine, Supply Chain HR Intern

Have a look at our open internship positions below. We’re sure we have one or more that would be just perfect for you. The application window for the Internship Programme will open again during early 2023.

Why an Arla internship?

“Being part of one of the largest dairy companies in the world has been a great experience filled with both challenges and many new relations. You experience a steep learning curve with great opportunities for developing on a professional and personal level.”

- Anne Sofie, Customer Marketing Intern

Joining our internship programme, you’ll get to:

  • Dive into your very own project, applying your skills to a real business case with full support from your colleagues and autonomy to solve it your way
  • Attend development days and workshops aimed at expanding your knowledge of our organisation and your own competencies
  • Share your experience with a great internship network, attending social and professional events together and learning from each other on the way

Maybe that’s just some of the reasons why we have been nominated in the category "Best Internship Company in Eastern Jutland" for the second consecutive year – with the nominations coming from our very own interns.

“People in Arla sincerely want what is best for you, so my advice would be to let your interests and passions be known, so that they can support you towards your goals.’’  
- Christine, Supply Chain HR Intern
