Are you passionate about co-creating your own Graduate Program? Then you might be our new Global Finance Graduate.


Work for a cause, not just a company
Novozymes is the world’s leading provider of industrial enzymes and microorganisms. Together with our customers, partners, and the global community, we use our innovative thinking and passion for science to boost industries and make everyday products more sustainable for the good of the planet. Our biological solutions enable higher agricultural yields, healthy food consumption, low-temperature washing, energy-efficient production, renewable fuel, and many other biological solutions that the world can benefit from – both today and in years to come. We need people who are eager to try new things, motivated by challenge, and not afraid to fail but driven to try again. And again. We know that original thinking happens when we’re given the flexibility to focus and the freedom to fully unfold our individual strengths. This is key to our innovation power. We call it Rethink Tomorrow.


Join our Global Graduate Program  
We seek highly motivated graduates that see a match between own capabilities, personal ambitions, and a future in Novozymes. As a graduate you’ll get a unique opportunity to evolve and mature your skillset through a two-year tailormade program that will send you on a steep learning curve. You will gain strong change – and strategy execution capabilities. These will grow from e.g., coaching, cross-functional and international rotations, a Harvard strategy accreditation, a mentor program, cultural awareness, training in communication and networking strategies, and much more. Upon program graduation you will be ready for an international career in Novozymes.
