Carlsberg Global Business Services (GBS) is looking for graduates that are equipped with a healthy curiosity, an entrepreneurial mind-set and an insatiable appetite for personal and professional development. We are calling for talented digital natives, with a flair for business development and innovation, to join our skillful team of vibrant business enablers.

If you are ready to make a difference with one of the largest brewers of the world, by taking a key role in introducing ground-breaking technologies and rethinking core business processes, then we are looking forward to hearing from you!

Carlsberg GBS Digital Graduate Program

The digital graduate program is a challenging opportunity tailored towards top-class students fresh out of university. The program is aimed to offer talented individuals with the right mind-set, a steep learning curve and a unique way of getting hands-on experience with what it takes to enable high performance in a multinational company of more than 40.000 employees.

We designed the program in such a way that you will be responsible for operational matters from day one. You will be asked to coordinate and align activities towards our functional counterparts (e.g. Finance, Supply Chain or Commercial), while paving the way for new exiting digital opportunities. In other words, you must be able to hit the ground running, by sharing your insights and ideas from the day you start!

The Digital Graduate Program runs over two years, after which time you will have received invaluable experience from at least three different types of roles in Carlsberg GBS. After the program, we anticipate that you will have learned and grown to the extent that we can offer you a key role in the organization, thus allowing us to continue your development to become one of Carlsberg’s future leaders.

Mentor Based Program

You will be paired with a mentor form our global GBS Leadership Team, who will help and guide you throughout the program. You are responsible for your own learning, however your mentor will challenge your thinking and provide you with feedback on how you perform in different situations.

Our CIO Mark Dajani is the program sponsor. He has high expectations, but is also ready to share his immense experience with you, and throughout the two years, you will get a number of chances to pitch your ideas to Mark and the rest of our leadership team.

We are looking for four graduates in total, meaning that you will have fellow graduates, who you can use for sparring, knowledge sharing and initial network.

What are we looking for?

You are determined and playful, both when you work with realizing your digital ideas and when you engage in complex problem solving to ensure a rock solid run of our operation. Once you are given, an assignment you take charge, align your stakeholders and keep going until all objectives are accomplished.

You hate failure, but also realize that it sometimes is a necessary stepping stone towards success. You are flexible, open-minded and embrace change. You are friendly, social intelligent and realize that the best work is done when a bit of fun is added to the process.

You are about to finish a Master’s Degree (ITU, DTU or similar). Ideally your degree combines a technical foundation with a solid insight into the field of business administration.

In addition to this, it is an advantage (but not a must) if you possess some of the following Qualifications:

  • Profound interest in and basic insight about disruptive technologies – e.g. IoT, Machine Learning & AI
  • Understanding of basic Data Analytics and ability to transform findings into value adding activities
  • Insight in the design of user interfaces and user experience (UI/UX)
  • Passion for innovation – especially when technology is the driver in business model innovation
  • Experience with the toolboxes of project and process management
  • Strong Business Acumen and a desire to lead the way
  • Most important you have the right mind-set and attitude

Finally, we assume that you are an experienced user of the Microsoft O365 suite (Maybe you even have some experience with PowerApps, Power BI and MS Flow). You are a great ambassador and teacher of any IT tools.

You are fluent in English. Travel may be expected at times.
