About the job

In this interesting role as finance analyst, you have a great chance to be exposed to all regions and markets across International where you will get a sense of Arla’s truly global reach and business.

Furthermore, you will support the performance management agenda which is at the heart of finance in Arla Foods. More specifically, you will:


  • Perform ongoing reporting on sales, cost, currency exposure, working capital etc. – mostly in Power BI

About you

You might have a Master in Finance (or similar) combined with a couple of years of experience from a finance role already, or you might be about to graduate this summer and are ready for your first full-time position. Most important is that you are a quick learner and that you are willing to move fast. As you will be working with a number of different stakeholders, you need to have a strong cooperative nature and an appetite on working in an international business environment. Furthermore, you are always willing to take up news tasks – from complex ones to very hands-on day-to-day tasks. As a true relationship builder you are capable of balancing networking with a clear focus on execution and progress on our operational agendas. And not least, you have a firm systems toolbox with outstanding skills in Excel and preferably also Power BI.


For the right candidate, this is a unique opportunity to build a platform based on which you can grow into a position in one of our regions or markets across the globe.
