Region Asia-Pacific (APAC) is a regional hub of Novo Nordisk and consists of seven big affiliates: Oceania, India, Korea, Iran, Thailand, Indonesia, Pakistan as well as a Business Area ‘BASEA’ responsible for these 11 countries: Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.

The APAC Finance organization focuses on driving competitive value creation with a strong performance culture with a focus on feedback. We are looking for people to help us transform numbers into actionable insights, to act as partners to line of business (e.g. sales and marketing organisation) and to create a solid platform for the company’s future success. Financial management and controlling of our operations, ensuring financial compliance, making challenging decisions and handling risks proactively are just a few of our activities.

During the programme you will work with 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 IO Finance Graduate Programme, so that, following its successful completion, you will be equipped with the necessary skills and experiences to become an integral part of our company with a permanent position in one of our global offices around the world.

The Position:

During the 2-year programme you will undertake three challenging and exciting rotations of 8-months duration. The first rotation will be in your home country Korea and the second and third will be international rotations in one of our global affiliates or regional offices.

You will become truly close to the marketplace and will get hands-on experience with business challenges and risks that pharmaceutical companies face in the marketplace and be able to impact the business with the acquired financial understanding.

The rotations are shaped to suit your development needs, while meeting our business requirements and to ensure you build the required competences needed to become a future finance leader in Novo Nordisk. 

Working at Novo Nordisk:
