Engineering Graduate Programme
The Graduate Programme is a 2-year programme specialist track, during which you will explore the company and develop your personal and professional skills through four job rotations of 6 months.
As you progress through the programme, you will take on projects that involve shorter or longer stays outside of Denmark. The duration of the stay could be anywhere from a few days to several months, depending on the project, and you can expect to have rotations within e.g. various Research & Development departments, Product Quality, Sennheiser Communications R&D.
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, role planning, competitor analysis, concept work, working with make or buy frameworks, and Product Quality Management.
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, we will provide you with a holistic overview over our business, you will interface between a wide range of functions and you are expected to challenge status quo. You will be given a lot of trust and will be working on innovative projects, together with inspiring people, in an ever-changing environment, where your capabilities will be acknowledged.
During the rotations, you will also combine strong technical competencies, stakeholder management and communication to drive projects and build a coherent understanding of the business. After successfully completing the programme, you will have a possibility to embark on your career with a “Dream Job” in Oticon or another William Demant owned companies.
