DIGITAL GRADUATE PROGRAMME

As a digital graduate, you will help pave the way for the Carlsberg Group’s digital transformation as a part of Integrated Information Technology (IIT). In IIT we provide Carlsberg with essential technology, data and business capabilities, which you will be given hands-on experience with. The aim is that our solutions will create value across business processes as well as with our customers and consumers. The digital graduate track is a two-year programme with three rotations and a graduate group project done in collaboration with your fellow Digital graduate colleagues. You will be based in our Central Office in Copenhagen. Going abroad for a rotation is a possibility but not something we can guarantee.

WHAT DO WE OFFER?

We offer you an exciting programme where you will experience a broad variance of our core capabilities in IIT, while being mentored and supported by a mentor from our Senior Leadership Team.

You will be taking on a professional and personal growth journey, that will require a lot of you, but at the same time will be very rewarding and equip you with a broad toolbox and competencies to take on an exciting permanent role after the programme ends. Together with your fellow digital graduates you will create and drive a “special project” assigned to you as a group to work on the side of your other responsibilities. This is your unique chance to leave a mark on Carlsberg with a project you drove from idea creation to finished project.

ROTATION LIFECYCLE

The foundation of the programme is to give you the opportunity to learn and explore different areas of IIT. Over the 24 months, we plan for three rotations of eight months each.

You will be exposed to our core capabilities such as business development & innovation, IT strategy, advanced analytics, Intelligent Automation, business process, UX and digital workplace. All disciplines and the work we do in IIT is tightened to our markets and regions.

Your first rotation will be assigned to you once you join the programme, but you will get the chance to give inputs and thereby shape your future rotations in collaboration with your mentor and manager. We do however expect you to keep an open mindset if we choose a rotation for you that you wouldn’t have picked yourself. We seek to give you all-around exposure to IIT and Carlsberg as a company, and this sometimes means trying something completely different than what you would have planned for yourself.

An example of a rotation lifecycle could be a first rotation in Digital Workplace, then a rotation in Global Strategy & Enterprise PMO and at last a rotation in Software Engineering. Providing you with capabilities and experience of many different areas of our digital transformation and priorities.

What made Gijs apply for the Digital programme?

“I applied for the Digital Graduate Programme because I really wanted to find a place where I could learn and develop as much as possible within the area of IT. And Carlsberg really gave me the opportunity to do this – because I could rotate around different areas of the business and really get a sense of the different functions.”

The Digital Graduate Programme and What we expect

“We expect our digital graduates to really come to us with a challenging mindset. We love that you're early in career and that you've got fresh ideas and that you can bring those to the table. It's really important that every time someone says to you “That's not the way we do it here”, that you challenge that, and you help us drive the way we do things differently.”
