Arla Pro is the foodservice leg of Arla Denmark, and we strive to deliver the right dairy solutions and products to our customers and end-users every day.  As our new team member in Marketing, you will get the Product Management responsibility for a range of Arla products, and gain deep insight into the full value chain of Arla, from our farmer owners to the various B2B customers we supply, ranging from restaurants, canteens or the public sector.

As this is a 6-month limited position, it is the ideal springboard for starting your career in Arla Foods.

You will be part of a close-knit team of 7 colleagues working in Arla Pro Marketing in Denmark, but as part of a global organization you will work with a vast number of stakeholders across Arla.

You are able to combine this with a good analytical mindset in order to bring a wide range of stakeholders together behind strategic and tactical decisions. An important key to your success is that you are able to navigate in a complex matrix organisation and create real value for your main stakeholders. This involves an ability to establish strong relationships in the organisation and be perceived as a true teamplayer.
