  • Finance
  • Business Management & Marketing
  • R&D

Within each of these paths are different areas of specialty. Each of these paths can lead to a very rewarding career, but are also highly competitive. Each program involves a training period of a different duration and has its own recruitment intake. However, in general the process is the same for all.The first part of the Novo Nordisk graduate program recruitment process is the online application form. You should structure the application to show how motivated you are for the role. You should also include the grades you received for your university modules. 


Ensure Your Success on the Novo Nordisk Saville Tests

The questions on the Saville can be confusing to the untrained eye, so practising is crucial for success. Moreover, the Saville is particularly challenging because it only allots a short amount of time for each question. Therefore, becoming comfortable with the test material prior to the evaluation is necessary to reduce anxiety and pass the test.

Novo Nordisk Graduate Scheme Telephone Interview

If your application is shortlisted, you will be invited to take part in the Novo Nordisk telephone interview.The telephone interview can be quite challenging because you are unable to ‘read’ the interviewer’s reactions to your comments, thereby making it difficult to gauge how you may have performed.

If you successfully proceed through the telephone interview, you will be asked to attend the Novo Nordisk Graduate recruitment centre, which is the same as an assessment center.The Novo Nordisk Assessment Center will be a fully packed, two day course. You will take part in activities that include group exercises, a presentation, case-studies and interviews. Throughout the two day period you will be assessed on:

  • Personal fit to Novo Nordisk
  • People skills
  • Presentation skills
  • Teamwork skills
  • Your motivation
  • Analytical and critical thinking skills

For each activity at the Assessment center, JobTestPrep can provide you with guidance and practice.
