Team trainings accelerate your development

The F15® Graduate Programme begins in September with a thorough introduction course to the various fundamentals of the Arla value chain - what we call ‘From Cow to Consumer’.
Being part of a leadership programme means that you will be invited to join assigned training weeks in different markets focusing on leadership skills, strategy, change and your own development. Besides that, on-the-job as well as functional trainings will be closely linked to your role in the organisation.

To anchor your new skills, you will conduct an innovation project with your F15® colleagues which you will pitch to Arla's executive management at the end of your programme.

During and at the end of each rotation, your host manager will evaluate your performance and behaviour in the current position: Did you reach the objectives and how? This input will inspire you to work with your Personal Development Plan and bring focus to your strengths and areas for improvement.

Arla Talents as your personal Mentor

Throughout the F15® Graduate Programme, you will be coached by a personal mentor from our Talent Acceleration Programme (Senior Managers and Directors) who will guide you on your Personal Development Plan and help you build strong networks with colleagues and decision makers.
