Senior Director, Farm Performance Programs - Aarhus

Can you provide leadership as well as inspire and engage a team of highly-skilled employees? And would you like to influence the sustainability agenda as the global leader of our Farm Performance Program (FPP)?

“Strategically, you’ll have a hard time finding a more influential role in Arla’s sustainability agenda. It’s one of the most valuable areas in Arla, and you’ll be placed right in the heart of it,” explains Vice President Henrik Damholt Jørgensen.

About the job
As a part of the Members Relations department, you will spearhead our Farm Performance Programs team consisting of 28 specialists. You will join 3 other members in your management group, each in charge of their team. In this role, your main goal will be to inspire and coach your colleagues to perform to the best of their abilities as we develop new farm sustainability initiatives, farm quality assurance programmes and Milk Quality programmes – making this available to all Arla members.

Further, you will be engaged in brand protection initiatives – specifically, your responsibilities include:

  • Driving on-farm performance through a strong Arlagården programme, supporting the members through our advisory and audit set-up
  • Incorporating different milk type and quality as well as sustainability initiatives into the Arlagården programme
  • Developing and operating Milk Quality programmes, ensuring that all members deliver the best possible milk quality at any time
  • Establishing, growing and acting as the Arla knowledge centre regarding farm management
  • Delivering farm insights based on member data to be used across the entire Arla organisation
  • Leading sustainability programmes and R&D work and supporting the development and execution of engagement programmes

Who are you?
With your solid background as a leader, you comfortably motivate your colleagues to reach their goals without micromanaging them. You are openminded and have the ability to prioritise projects, always keeping the overall value of the agenda in mind. Moreover, you easily navigate on all strategic and operational levels in the organisation, and you can communicate with people of different seniority and expertise. 

Moreover, we imagine that you:

  • Have experience from a position in agriculture or the food industry
  • Hold a degree within e.g. chemical engineering, agricultural science, food science and technology, dairy science or similar
  • Have substantial experience managing a team 
  • Are familiar with working with a democratic organisation, meaning that you enjoy and have skills in working strategic with our Board of Directors as well as other important elected member functions

What do we offer?
In Arla, we are committed to your professional development. And we hope that our positive and collaborative culture will showcase your abilities and bring out the best in you.

Take this opportunity to join a global Farm Performance Program leader who brings countless household brands to people’s tables every day. We continuously seek to produce our products in more ethical and sustainable ways – for our customers, the farmers who own Arla.

It’s a unique chance to really make a difference on a global agenda – you bring that inner passion to set the direction, drive change and ultimately, unleash your colleagues’ potential,” Henrik Damholt Jørgensen finishes.

COVID-19 Notice:
We are busy producing dairy products so we can continue #fillingtheshelves and #feedingthenation. Recruiting talent to Arla thus stays one of our top priorities also during these difficult times. Necessity is the mother of invention, so we have moved to virtual hiring and onboarding processes so we enable candidates and our recruitment teams to get close while respecting social distancing. If at the final stages of a recruitment, a candidate would prefer to meet in person, we take all the necessary precautions to ensure everyone's safety.
