Novo Nordisk Graduate Program

The Novo Nordisk graduate program consists of numerous different paths:

  • Supply Chain
  • 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 they 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.

Novo Nordisk Online Test

In the next stages Novo Nordisk also conducts psychometric testing. They ask their candidates to perform a personality test and an aptitude test. The aptitude test is provided by Saville Consulting and you can practice them by clicking here.
The online tests take place prior to the telephone interview.

Novo Nordisk 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. It is important to prepare for the telephone interview, and JobTestPrep can help you to prepare with our guide, available here.

Novo Nordisk Assessment Center

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
  • Team player skills
  • Your motivation
  • Analytical and critical thinking skills

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

Group Exercises – You will take part in some group exercises in which you will be required to solve non real life problems within your group.

Presentation – You assessors will provide you with information which you will need to analyse, prepare and then present.

Case Study – This exercise will require you to study a real scenario. Typical case study examples will usually be situations that occurred in the company in the previous year. You will be required to present your solutions to the assessors and hopefully you may reach a similar solution to what the Novo Nordisk team came up with. Prepare for your test with our case study preparation pack.

Interviews The final interview will focus on your overall personality together with some more technical based questions about your chosen career path.

The Novo Nordisk Assessment Center is pretty intense so make sure you are well rested beforehand. If you are successful, you will be notified after a few days. Good Luck!
