Supply Chain and Procurement


Hillerød, Capital Region of Denmark, DK

Are you passionate about supply chain management and manufacturing, and do you thrive in a dynamic and international environment with many stakeholders? Do you want to ensure the delivery of first-class medical devices and contribute to improving the lives of people living with diabetes worldwide? Then seize the opportunity to become our new Supply Manager and engage in a career with many interesting challenges and good development opportunities in an international company.

About the department
You will join the Device Manufacturing and Sourcing (DMS) Supply Chain department in Hillerød, where


colleagues look forward to welcoming you. We ensure the supply of a large number of components produced world-wide to our global footprint of Novo Nordisk A/S factories, and are responsible for the suppliers’ ability to deliver on time and in full, in the right quality and to the right cost.

The Job
Your main responsibility is to manage the supply chain on contract production of components for medical devices at our suppliers in Brazil and Ireland. On a daily basis you will engage in close coordination with several external as well as internal stakeholders, such as Logistics, Quality, and Process Support, where you will act as the anchoring point and ensure that the right activities are prioritised. You will be the point of entry between Novo Nordisk and the suppliers and will be responsible for the coordination of operational and tactical actions in collaboration with the Project Office, Strategic Sourcing, and Device Manufacturing Development.

The overall objective for the supply manager is to ensure stable and reliable supply while continuously improving the performance and collaboration with the supplier. You will challenge us in the way we do things, and through innovative ideas you assist in improving our processes in order to work smarter and secure the best possible result for Novo Nordisk. Main activities are driven out of DMS in Hillerød, while some travelling related to supplier visits are to be expected. The position is temporary (24 months).


You hold an Engineering degree, MSc or similar and have 3-5 years of relevant experience with vendor management, managing supply chains or production. A solid business understanding and experience with KPI setting, board meetings, and the basic LEAN toolbox usage is an advantage, as is experience in communication with management.

You have a strong drive and you enjoy setting direction. You are able to prioritise among your tasks and plan ahead. It motivates you to continuously look for ways to improve and optimise how we manage our supply chain.

As you will be dealing with a lot of different stakeholders, internal as well as external, it is essential that you enjoy creating and maintaining relations within all levels of the organisation and that you have strong communication and negotiation skills. You are also skilled at presenting complex information and decision material in a simple and clear manner.

You have proficiency in both written and spoken English.
