About the programme
The Demant Graduate Programme offers you a unique opportunity to develop your personal and professional skills. Each year, we hire between 5-10 graduates for different business areas. We will lead you through a two-year journey starting in September 2022. Depending on the business area, you will have 3-4 different rotations each lasting for 6-8 months. This will provide you with a broad understanding of our business and a strong network of people across functions.


You will plan your rotations together with your Host Manager to enhance your development in the best possible way. The programme also adapts to the needs of the business. Therefore, the projects and tasks vary from rotation to rotation. As we are a global company, many of our graduates can also go abroad for one of their rotations. 

 

What else is in it for you?
You will be given real tasks and responsibilities with high exposure from day one. We believe this is the best way to kick-start your career. After successfully completing the programme, you will continue your career in Demant in a permanent position.

 

We have a flat organization, which helps you to get a holistic overview of our business. To easier find your way around, former graduates will partner up with you to support you. We furthermore offer you training sessions such as project and stakeholder management skills. We also offer a mentoring scheme, which will focus on your personal development. Besides that, you will join a fantastic network with the other graduates, whereby everybody grows together already after the first days.

 

Your business area: Global Business

In Demant, we have the full value chain; from idea and development to direct sales to our users. As a graduate in Global Business, you will work within our largest business where we are responsible for operating a leading global hearing aid retailer. At our headquarters in Smørum, you will be a part of a highly dedicated and specialized team with a global outreach, where we plan, manage, and execute a wide range of strategic and day to day activities for our 8.000 international colleagues in our own Hearing Care shops around the world. 


During your time in Global Business, you will explore the company and develop your personal and professional skills through 3 job rotations of 8 months each. There is a possibility to have one of your rotations at one of our locations abroad. 


The projects you will be responsible for, will be anchored in current and need-driven developments and your own competencies and interests. Projects and tasks may include digital marketing, analytics, financial analyses, M&A, customer journey strategies and IT development and deployment. We have a strong focus on improving interface between business and IT/technology, and how we on one hand can draw on that to enhance customer experiences when they visit our shops, and at the same time optimize work processes for our colleagues. 


As a graduate, you will be included in the day-to-day operations of the department, where you also will have direct exposure to top management in Demant. 


Irrespective of the tasks, one thing is certain: You will face a steep learning curve with a high degree of responsibility from day one. In our flat organization, you will train your analytical, strategic, and innovative skills, you will be exposed to a huge range of projects, you will be expected to take ownership for your decisions and to challenge status quo.
