Procurement Consultants to Corporate Procurement

Join us for an exciting career within procurement and business development in Novo Nordisk. We are now looking for ambitious Procurement Consultants with the wish to join our two year Procurement Consultant Programme. You will develop your core skills within category strategy, contract negotiation, sourcing processes, procurement systems as well as project and change management. You will work with senior managers and build an international network of world-class colleagues. The programme is a great opportunity for rapid professional development and is your chance to get an understanding of our value chain, while delivering tangible results and adding value to the business.

About the department
Novo Nordisk is the global leader among companies that improve the lives of the more than 300 million people who suffer from diabetes.

Corporate Procurement is responsible for the indirect spend of Novo Nordisk (more than 25 billion DKK) and for defining and driving the global procurement strategy. Corporate Procurement consists of 150 employees based in Denmark and India and globally more than 400 people work in procurement. Corporate Procurement is anchored with direct report to the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Novo Nordisk.

We pride ourselves of fostering a global mind-set, dedication to business partnering and a relentless focus on creating rewarding careers for our people. Further, we manage our business by building strategies and executing improvement projects to optimise the global spend related to, e.g. R&D activities, marketing services, travel, professional advisory services, facility management and IT. To do so, we collaborate with senior stakeholders and their teams across the organisation. We work fact-based, are dedicated to collaborative problem solving and take active leadership for the initiatives we are involved in. We invest significant resources in developing our employees through coaching and frequent feedback and by giving significant responsibility to individuals.

The position
The Procurement Consultant Programme includes four rotations of six months each in four different departments in Corporate Procurement, located at our global headquarters in Bagsværd. The work will be based out of Denmark but involve close collaboration with the colleagues across the globe.

You will work as a fully-fledged member of each department and learn competencies relevant to the rotation in question. In the programme you will be assigned a mentor and through coaching and training you will obtain a strong consultant toolbox.

As a Procurement Consultant, you will drive selected sourcing and business development projects. In addition, you will work with developing our category strategies through sound and fact based analyses. You will work closely with our key stakeholders on identifying business improvement projects and sourcing opportunities in our global organisation and drive negotiation and relationship management with our suppliers.

We expect you to have recently completed or are close to completing a relevant Master's degree (in e.g. Supply Chain Management Finance, Business Administration, Economics or Engineering) with a top 15% GPA.

You have a great interest in procurement, supply chain management or sourcing and have worked within one or more of these areas during university projects, a student job, an internship or similar. You take leadership naturally and have high professional expectations for yourself and your colleagues. You communicate and sell your ideas effectively and you have the ability to work with various stakeholders, colleagues and suppliers. You are structured, analytical and very ambitious with excellent IT and communication skills. Finally, you are fluent in English and interested in understanding the value chain in large organisations.

Expected start is latest 1 September 2018. Please note that CV and full educational grade transcript is required when applying.

Working at Novo Nordisk
In Novo Nordisk it is your skills, commitment and ambitions that help us improve the lives of millions of people across the world. In return, we offer you the opportunity to work with talented colleagues in an ambitious environment and we commit dedication to your professional and personal development in order to help you realise your ambitions.
