You are about to graduate with a Master's degree in a relevant subject, for example finance, economics, business administration or management, or have graduated not more than 12 months ago.
You have a very strong interest in pursuing your career in the Finance area (e.g. Investor Relations, Business Controlling, Managerial Accounting).
The Global Finance Graduate Programme is a new programme. As you progress through the programme you will take on projects that may involve shorter or longer stays outside of Denmark or in different parts of Denmark. You can expect to have 6 months in the corporate headquarters at Kongebakken, Smørum working in Corporate Controlling; 6 months in Finance Shared Service Center in Stettin, Poland; 6 months rotation in Investor Relations in the headquarters and lastly 6 months in a sales company in either Somerset, US, or any other big Retail and Wholesale location. The previous finance graduates have been on business assignments to countries such as United States, Poland, Australia, Netherlands, UK, Ireland, just to mention a few places, so it is important that you are excited about and enjoy travelling as well as flexible about your geographical location.
The duration of the stay could be anywhere from a few days to a half year, depending on the project you are connected to. The Global Finance Graduate Programme is flexible and adapts to the needs of the business, hence the travels and stays will vary from one rotation to another.
Here are some examples of a broad range of areas you might be working with: data collection, data handling, reviewing reported numbers, process mapping, budgeting and forecasting sales and costs just to name a few. You might also be involved in numerous strategic cross-functional projects in order to build a coherent understanding of the business. Regardless of the tasks presented during the 2-year programme, one thing is certain – you will face a steep learning curve, high expectations and an extraordinary exposure to the top management level at William Demant!
The 2019 Graduate Programme will be open for applications in November 2018
