Finance Graduate Track

Based in Group Finance, in the Central Office (HQ) of the Carlsberg Group in Copenhagen, the program takes the graduate through the different operations within a multinational finance function. You will be exposed to Accounting, Financial planning, and Management reporting. During the two rotations in Group Finance, you will also be working cross-regions and markets. The third rotation will be in in a market outside the Central Office.

Rotations can be within;

Financial Planning & Analysis rotation: In the controlling rotation you will, among others, support the team in creating, analysing and commenting on the financial reports (for Carlsberg’s Executive Committee). You will get the opportunity of working directly with senior management, both on a recurring basis, as well as for ad hoc finance projects. In addition, the finance graduate will drive the financial and business controlling of the Carlsberg Group’s non-commercial companies. Finally, the finance graduate will be involved in projects and assignments directly related to the objectives of Group Finance.

Accounting rotation: In the Accounting rotation, you will be part of Group Consolidation, where you will get knowledge in the Group’s financial consolidation system and processes. You will get a deep dive into accounting practices, through ensuring the company’s financials are ready for internal and external use. Moreover, you will constantly communicate with subsidiaries, regions and other functions in headquarters during the consolidation process. Last but not least, you will be exposed to and participate in the Annual Report process, requiring cooperation with Auditors and preparation of financial statements.

Project rotation abroad: Typically, the project rotation is one of the markets outside Denmark where you will be responsible for implementing a specific project locally or supporting a subsidiary with local finance operations. The project rotation abroad offers the opportunity to utilize the skills acquired during the program, and to contribute to the running of the local business. This rotation is developed together with the graduate depending on actual finance projects and possibilities in the local markets.
