New Graduates & Young Professionals

At Orkla we hire newly graduated students every year to fill a wide range of positions. When you are offered a role in Orkla as a new graduate, you will be defined as a Young Professional (YP). As a YP, you will be employed in a permanent position in one of our subsidiary companies and from there the world is your oyster! You will start to build and grow your career in Orkla and gain access to a wide array of opportunities – both across companies and brands, moving laterally and upwards throughout the organization to build on your competences.

You will have access to a wide range of training opportunities at our professional Academies and have the chance to work with leaders who are both inspiring and motivating with their commercial vision. But, more than that, you will be part of an open culture of self-improvement and brave entrepreneurial spirit that runs though our people, our business and everything we do.

By choosing Orkla, you will challenge yourself every day – as we all strive to find even better ways to leave a mark on the business for years to come.
