Our take on the Demant Graduate Programme

We offer you a career in a global medical healthcare company, where you can look forward to an open and fun work environment. Demant is an international, leading C25 company within hearing healthcare. We operate in a global market with companies in more than 30 countries. Demant covers five business activities: hearing instruments, hearing implants, diagnostic equipment, hearing care, and personal communication. 

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. 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.

 

Demant is the marketleader within Hearing health. in 2020 the company generated revenues of 14,469 MDKK. Most of this coming from their key markets in Europe and North America. They have more than 16,000 employees globally and is listed on Nasdaq Copenhagen. 

 

They are well positioned to continue to drive growth in the hearing healthcare market due to their investments in R&D as well as the growing ageing population. 

 

The Demant Graduate Programme was launched back in 2014 and is now going on their 8th year. During the two-year programme you will go through 3-4 rotations in different parts of the business. It offers exciting international possibilities as part of their programme and you will have the chance to spend a rotation in one of their offices in United States, Poland,  Mexico or Germany or one of their other international offices.

 

Previous graduates have spoken highly about the freedom to choose your own rotations and be part of shaping your experience. It is also very hands on and you are given responsibility early on.  If you are expecting to carve your way to the top by having sharp elbows – think again. The company is proud in it’s humble approach and cooperative team spirit. Finally it is exciting to work on a product that is helping people live a more fulfilling life.
