“What I think is special about this Graduate Programme is that it provides a unique opportunity to gain critical and holistic insight into how it is to steer a ship of this massive size. Insight which is obtained from the up-close exposure to the very top of the management structure as well as exposure to real business-critical challenges which both stretch across many different geographical locations and areas of the value chain."

"I joined this programme as it will allow me to learn by contributing to accomplishing things and to actually use this theoretical knowledge that I have accumulated by “getting my hands dirty” and getting up close to both the everyday life and strategic navigation of a high-tech production company.

One example of such a task is the inventory replenishment system which I during the last couple of months have been given the chance to build and implement. With a set of calculations and processes this system will hopefully ensure that we have the right amount of products available, at the right time, at the right place in the world, and thereby always are able to serve our customers.”

“I joined the graduate programme at William Demant because it seemed the perfect opportunity to challenge myself in multiple sectors and grow within a multinational group with a strong Danish identity. The reputation of the company and my personal interest for the healthcare sector were determinant in the decision to join this specific graduate programme.

The amazing aspect about being a graduate is the great exposure to different functions within the company, and to different problems and perspectives. It gives you an insight into relevant issues, and provides you with the chance to make a real difference in finding solutions.

So far, I have had the chance to work on multiple projects, which gave me a very good understanding of “what we make in WDH and how we get it out”. What I find exciting in my work is that the bar is set high; as a graduate I have been granted a substantial level of responsibility from the very beginning."
