ARLA Foods Deutschland GmbH — Future Leader F15 Graduate Programme Create the future – Grow with Arla F15 Graduate Programme Future Arla leaders – Join the F15 Graduate Programme Want to pursue a career in leadership within a global market leading FMCG company with a purpose for Good in the world? And would you like to explore the world and your own talents as you do so? Then the F15 Graduate Programme is the perfect way for you to kick-start your career. Just ask former F15 graduate Elmira Gardashova who was not sure what she wanted to do with her career after university and today works as a Sustainability Finance Manager with us: “My Arla journey started in our investment office in Aarhus, then I got the chance to move to sunny Dubai to work in regional consumer marketing, and then I came back to Aarhus and joined the MICS finance team. I found my dream job (for now), and the F15 programme was definitely one of the key enablers.” It’s time to define the future of dairy At Arla Foods, we strive to unlock the highest potential in each other while working together to define the future of dairy. We push each other forward to meet the growing global demand for dairy and to make the industry sustainable with respect to people and the environment. To do so, we need the best talents with a desire to take part in our transformation journey. Talents who strive to transform challenges into opportunities and who want to take part in realising our ambitious Future26 strategy. Jump aboard a fast-track leadership programme The F15 Graduate Programme is a 2-year leadership programme that includes 3 different 8-month rotations. Each rotation will be in a new business area and location – taking you to our HQ in Denmark and 1 or 2 other locations inside or outside of Europe. No matter your business area, you will get to work on high-profile projects while growing your strategic, personal and functional skill set. You will join assigned leadership training camps and receive feedback and mentoring from senior stakeholders to ensure your professional growth. “As an F15 graduate, you deliver value directly to strategic projects. It is empowering to be thrown in at the deep end not knowing how to swim when you have a leader who is there to support you.” – Alex Racoveanu, Sales & Marketing Director, former F15 graduate Joining our graduate programme, you are not just a part of Arla Foods, but you are also part of an extraordinary network with your fellow graduates and colleagues.

Maybe you will continue in a position in marketing, supply chain, finance, commercial or something completely different. It’s up to you! “Not only has the programme led me to roles which someone at my age or with my experience arguably would not be in; but the three different rotations have also given me a very broad stakeholder network within Arla Foods.” – Bob Den Hartog, Managing Director of Arla Hong Kong, former F15 graduate Are you our next F15 graduate?
