About the programme

The Graduate Programme in DFDS is newly established for finance and shipping profiles, and it offers you a unique opportunity to make your mark in an interesting business where we are committed to transforming into a greener and more digitised operation. We are proud of our role in the critical infrastructure serving communities across Europe and Further afield.

As a DFDS Graduate you will experience a great network of peers, a steep learning curve, management exposure, and get a unique opportunity to develop personal and professional skills in a global setting. You will join a programme with three rotations of eight months duration. During one of your rotations, you will be working in one of our offices outside of Denmark.

Stories from the inside

Application Process

The process follows few steps: 1) screening of candidates 2) selection of candidates to invite for the Assessment Centre in HQ on March 13 3) candidates fill out tests before joining Assessment Centre with interviews (including test feedback) and casework 4) selected candidates will be invited for a second and final interview.

After the Program ends

During the last rotation we will in collaboration with the graduate explore different opportunities for a full time position based on the candidate profile and the business need. Some of the candidates will be offered a job in HQ – but it is very likely that the best match for you is in one of our subsidiaries outside of Denmark.
