Then join us in a challenging position in Arla Foods, where you get to analyze Supply Chain challenges and drive projects while gaining a huge insight into our global business.

By navigating a complex stakeholder landscape, you will gain insight into our business. This is a great stepping stone for a future career in Arla Foods,” says Director Uffe Sonne Pedersen.



How you will make an impact
In this position, you will have two roles: On the one hand, you help us focus on our overall execution of our logistic value chain. This includes proactively analyze our operation in case of discrepancies, or if we are unable to deliver according to plan.  

On the other, you help drive long-term projects. They vary in scope and complexity and often span several functions. Examples of such could be to improve efficiency in our logistics processes, implement new Power BI app’s, drive improvement projects and participate in standardization projects.

To facilitate this, you:


  • Ideally have worked with supply chain, warehousing or distribution – either in a transport company or as part of a supply chain department in a large company, and now you are ready to take the next step in your career
  • Are ambitious and set the bar high – probably higher than most – as we work with branded products and anything we do affects the Arla brand
  • Have a commercial degree, which contributes to your analytical and methodical approach, which enables you to see root causes and correlations
  • Have knowledge of continuous improvement – Lean, agile methods or similar
