This is an exciting time to join Arla, as we are on a transformation journey, which you can be a part of.

As our new Finance Specialist, you join 150 colleagues in our Supply Chain Finance area. The Automation & Robotics team is a small group of pioneers in the field, and you will be part of setting the direction for a key part of Arla’s global automatization and digitalisation journey. The path from idea to implementation is short, meaning that you will get to see the results of your work quickly.

Within Supply Chain Finance at our headquarters in Aarhus, you will join the Automation & Robotics team, where you will work alongside 3 experienced colleagues. Together, you will define and drive projects that optimise financial processes through robotics and automatization benefiting colleagues across the finance organisation.

As the link between Finance and IT, you design and specify business requirements to the team of developers. Further, you communicate with colleagues across Supply Chain sites globally, at Arla headquarters to identify, prioritize projects, and drive change locally. Specifically, you:

  • Utilizing your technical skills to help build various types of automation tools ranging from Blue Prism RPA robots to VBA Macros, and available end-user software from MS O365 – all in all to decrease workloads and optimize processes
  • Conduct Process Development Description (PDD) in collaboration with experts
  • Investigate new opportunities for automation within Artificial Intelligence and other new trends within robotics
  • Take a project management role, driving stakeholder dialogue in the journey from initial idea to finished robotics solution, whilst contributing to change management

Taking up the role of Finance Specialist you collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders and travel around 10 days per year.

To succeed in this role, you need to have experience within financial processes, project oriented work and IT. You take a keen interest in IT systems and automatization, and with your fiercely analytical mindset, you can break down complex, manual business processes into automatable processes.  At the same time, you have strong communication and people skills, which allow you to discuss automatization and processes with Finance, IT and Operational colleagues across the world. Moreover, we imagine that you:
