What’s it about?

Novo Nordisk’s Region AAMEO encompasses markets in Africa, Asia, Middle East and Oceania. The region represents a large portion of the GDP growth in the world today; however the growth is very unevenly distributed, with countries like Saudi Arabia, India, Algeria, Iran and Russia being some of the main growth drivers in AAMEO.

During the 2-year programme you will undertake four rotations of 6-months each. One rotations will take place in our AAMEO regional headquarters in Dubai, U.A.E, one rotation in one of our Business Areas, one in a large sales affiliate within AAMEO, and one in either our corporate HQ in Denmark or International Operations office in Switzerland. 

The rotations are shaped to suit your development needs, while meeting our business requirements and to ensure you build the required competences.

You will work as a fully-fledged member of the team and learn competencies relevant to the rotation. You will also spend a significant amount of your time on key change projects.

What’s in it for me?

We are a successful global pharmaceutical company and the world leader in diabetes care. Your skills, dedication and ambition will help us continue to change lives for the better as we grow our business and help millions of people around the world.

Working at Novo Nordisk you will therefore have the opportunity to make a significant difference to patients and society while also delivering exciting results from a business perspective.

During the AAMEO Finance graduate programme, you will receive formal training and gain knowledge and invaluable international experience leading to both professional and personal development. You will develop your core skills within areas such as financial planning, analysis and controlling, process management and management reporting.

Furthermore, you will work with senior managers and build an international network of world-class colleagues, establishing yourself as one of tomorrow’s key people in finance at Novo Nordisk.

We’ve designed the AAMEO Finance graduate programme, so that, following its successful completion, you will be equipped with the necessary skills and experience to become an integral part of our company – typically with a permanent position in one of the Business Area offices or affiliates in the region.
