Sustainability intern in Strategic Sourcing Business Support
Are you looking for an exciting hands-on learning opportunity to supplement your studies? Join us as an intern in Novo Nordisk and get an opportunity to work alongside experienced colleagues from many different nationalities within various fields. Depending on your interests and the business needs of our organisational unit, the possibility for a master’s thesis collaboration following (or as part of) your internship exists.
One of our current top priorities is to develop and implement the environmental sustainability strategy in Strategic Sourcing, and within this area engage with stakeholders and develop data management excellence across our unit. You will work closely with the Sustainability Partner in Business Support, on various initiatives related to both our social and environmental responsibilities towards suppliers. Within this area you will also be working with a diverse set of stakeholders across Strategic Sourcing, other sourcing units and corporate functions.
Furthermore, you can expect to be working closely with the Business Support digitalisation team who are focused on collecting, structuring, applying data and developing digital solutions to optimise the way we work. You will work with data both on a practical and strategic level and be engaged in communication to both peers and management.
You will likely be working with software/systems like Excel, SAP, Power Platform, Alteryx, Tableau and Coupa. You can anticipate varied working days with many different tasks and numerous stakeholders and get a broad insight into the work of a Strategic Sourcing function.
- Internship period: 5-12 months
- Working hours: 37 hours a week, with the possibility of variation over the course of the internship
- Start date: Preferably in April/May, alternatively Mid August
- Internships are remunerated, if your educational track allows
- A Danish full time work permit is required
- A valid student status throughout the full internship is required
You are currently studying for your Bachelor or Master’s degree in Supply Chain Management, Environmental Engineering, Environmental management, Digital Innovation, Business Intelligence, Economic or similar. In any case, you have great analytical and problem solving skills and are comfortable working with data. As a foundation for this, you are a skilled user of Microsoft Excel and you have attention to details and are able to structure and communicate data. Experience with Power Platform, Alteryx or Tableau is not a requirement, but it is a plus. If you are used to problem solving and creating compelling power point presentations (e.g. in the form of case competition participation) this will be considered an advantage.
As a person you should have a high level of drive and a willingness to take responsibility for your own learning. This should be seen in your strong work ethics and proactive drive both professionally and personally. In addition, you thrive in a busy work environment and bring a good sense of humour to your work even when the pressure is on. Finally, good cooperation and communication skills are essential as well as a profound interest in working in a global, complex and dynamic organisation. As a prerequisite for this, solid English language skills (both in speech and in writing) are required.
