Project Associate in Novo Nordisk Consulting 97 views

Are you a top graduate student motivated by making a difference and being part of a winning team of ambitious talents with diverse backgrounds? Then look no further we are looking for Project Associates to help us solve complex problems and deliver impact to patients.


About the department

Novo Nordisk Consulting is the in-house management consultancy for Novo Nordisk that reports directly to Executive Management. We combine best practices from top-tier management consultancies with the strengths of being an internal consultancy to drive a broad range of high-profile projects across Novo Nordisk’s value chain and geographies.


Our projects provide exposure to senior management for all team members and the unit is recognised as one of the main talent incubators in Novo Nordisk with a strong track record for exporting talents to management positions across the organisation. We develop our talents by continuously investing in people development and strive to offer the same steep learning curve as in top-tier consultancies.


You will join a young, dynamic team of ~20 employees mainly with backgrounds from top-tier consultancies. The unit has strong buy-in from management and a clear aspiration to grow further.


The position

From day one you will work as an integrated part of project teams of 2-5 consultants that works directly on-site with clients to solve some of their most difficult problems. Your experienced colleagues will help you learn the consultant’s toolbox and ensure that you constantly develop via feedback. On projects, you will be responsible for a workstream or specific project components, including driving quantitative analysis, leading stakeholder interactions and developing recommendations.


Projects are strategically important to Novo Nordisk and may include strategy development, organisational development, business transformations and process optimisations. They will expose you to senior stakeholders across many different organisational units and allow you to build a strong network within Novo Nordisk. You will join a fast-paced unit, so we expect you to be an active part in the continuous development of both Novo Nordisk consulting and Novo Nordisk.



The person we are looking for has:

  • A relevant Master’s Degree (e.g. Economics, Business Administration, Engineering) with outstanding results and ideally graduating during 2019
  • 0-2 years of full-time work experience
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Ability to communicate complex information clearly (both verbally and in writing)
  • Solid interpersonal skills and motivation to drive change at all levels of the organisation
  • Proven to be ambitious, challenge-seeking and result-oriented


A background from student positions or internships in management consulting or a pharmaceutical company is highly regarded but not a prerequisite for this position. Start date is flexible in 2019 and visa sponsorship is available for the right candidate.
