General Business Graduate Programme
The Graduate Programme is a 2-year programme, during which you will explore the company and develop your personal and professional skills through four job rotations of 6 months.
William Demant is a global company; therefore, the General Business Graduate Programme is designed with an international perspective in mind. As you progress through the programme you will take on projects that may involve shorter or longer stays outside of Denmark. The duration of the stay could be anywhere from a few days to a half year, depending on the project you are connected to. The General Business Graduate Program is flexible and adapts to the needs of the business, hence the travels and stays will vary from rotation to rotation. The previous graduates have been to countries such as China, England, United States, Kenya, Poland, France, and Germany just to mention a few places, so it is important that you are excited about and enjoy travelling as well as flexible about your geographical location.
Throughout the programme, you will be working closely with your Host Manager to plan your rotations and enhance your professional and personal development as much as possible. A personal manager and a go-to manager of each unit will support each rotation. Former graduates will act as mentors to guide you through the programme and the corporate culture.
What to expect
You can expect rotations and tasks that are shaped in conjunction with what the business needs and what the graduates’ competences and interests are. Some of the tasks may include project management, big data analysis, KPI analysis, product management, process mapping, and concept development.
Regardless of the tasks presented during the 2-year programme, one thing is certain – you will face a steep learning curve, with a high degree of responsibility from day one. In our flat organization, you will train your analytical, strategic and project management skills, you will be exposed to a huge range of projects, you will be expected to take ownership for your decisions and to challenge status quo.
During the rotations, you might also work with Analysis and Forecasting, Reporting and Retail, Customer Relationship Management, Campaign Planning and Business Controlling, in order to build a coherent understanding of the business. After successfully completing the programme, you will have the possibility to embark on your career at William Demant and finding your “Dream Job”, perhaps as an executive assistant, internal business consultant or a project manager.
