Have you ever wondered how Novo Nordisk ensures the supply of critical products while balancing risk, financial, social, and environmental considerations? Are you curious about how Novo Nordisk collaborates with suppliers regarding its “Circular for Zero” sustainability strategy? Do you have a flair for developing business cases, solving complex supply chain problems, and would you like to learn about designing and executing sourcing strategies?  In Strategic Sourcing, we are looking for talented students for a full-time internship position starting in February 2023. Join us!

About the department
Strategic Sourcing is the central sourcing unit in Novo Nordisk’s Product Supply division. This means that we are responsible for all strategic sourcing activities related to Novo Nordisk’s worldwide pharmaceutical production and supply to sales affiliates. Strategic Sourcing is responsible for setting global strategic direction, and for driving long-term supply chain planning to optimise our commercial opportunities and to balance risks.

We collaborate closely with our key internal stakeholders in Purchasing, Quality Assurance, Manufacturing Development, international production sites, and sales affiliates. Together we develop and execute sourcing strategies, supplier development, market insights, risk management, and contract management to improve performance on delivery, quality, cost – always in line with Novo Nordisk’s Triple Bottom Line: balancing financial, social, and environmental considerations.

Strategic Sourcing consists of around 70 individuals from more than 15 different countries and a great variety of educational backgrounds including Supply Chain Management, Economics, Engineering, Science, and Legal.

The position
You will have the opportunity to experience many exciting challenges, ranging from scanning markets for suitable suppliers to ensuring already approved suppliers’ ability to deliver products and services to our production sites and sales markets.

As an intern in Strategic Sourcing, you will support different sourcing categories in the daily work of running tenders and preparing for negotiations, approving suppliers, driving cross-functional projects, and being updated on the market dynamics. You will also be involved in tasks related to various markets and extensive data analysis used for developing long-term sourcing strategies, preparing business cases, and up and downstream supply chain impact on different scenarios.

  • Working hours: Full-time (37 hours a week)
  • Start date: February 2023.
  • Internships are remunerated if your educational track allows
  • A Danish full-time work permit is necessary, as is a valid student status for the duration of the entire internship

Being an intern in Strategic Sourcing means that you will get the unique opportunity to join one of our dynamic, international, and high-performing teams. In addition, you will become part of a great social network including our intern community, and join various social events (weekly breakfasts, Paddle tennis, Bowling, Dinners, etc.).

You are currently first or second year Master student in Supply Chain Management, Business, Economics, Engineering, or other relevant field.

  • Passionate about problem-solving with strong personal drive and dedication
  • Thrive in a busy environment and bring a “can-do” attitude with sound personal judgment and excellent interpersonal skills
  • Positive-minded with a healthy sense of humour and strong working ethic with willingness to take responsibility for your own learning
