Make innovation happen and drive revenue growth for Arla Foods Denmark

As Commercial Innovation Manager you’ll be responsible for driving selected projects as well as developing long-term pipelines. You will anticipate consumers’ current and future needs and operate with agility to create new value for consumers, shoppers, customers and Arla Foods.

Ideas are important, but it’s delivery that counts

As someone motivated by the importance of innovation to drive business growth, we expect that you have a naturally creative gene. If you enjoy the thrill of starting with the unknown and working tirelessly to turn ideas into reality you will probably thrive in our team.

If you understand that innovation is less about ideas and more about influencing key internal and external stakeholders then you’re the right fit. Ultimately, if you have the desire and drive to make innovation happen, and wish to see the fruits of your labour on retails shelves, this is the perfect job for you.

You have a university degree, and you understand consumer insights and know how to uncover them.

You have a strong commercial mindset and are able to use crucial marketing and financial levers to drive maximum value for business growth.
