Production supporter experienced with equipment for the largest insulin factory in the world

Novo Nordisk A/S



Information Technology & Telecom


Kalundborg, Region Zealand, DK

Are you energised by the kind of problem solving that allows your group to be the reason major losses are avoided and huge potential is harvested? If you really know your way around pipes, tanks and valves, and you always seem to know about problems before they arise, you may be the one we are looking for. If you are professionally ready to be responsible for all our operational equipment in a manufacturing setup with very high-quality standards, we may even have the job you are looking for.

About the department
In Insulin Manufacturing 1 (IM1), we produce the core ingredients in the most recent Novo Nordisk products, Rybelsys® and Ozempic®. In IM1 Purification, we have been producing the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) for all the trials that led to the launch of the products, and now we are ready to produce in full scale, after a comprehensive upscaling of our line and the processes involved.

In IM1 Purification, Support part 1-2, where you will be part of a team of 21 other supporters with expertise that differs from yours, we handle all the support needs of the line. We spend a lot of time on shop floor support, building relations and making sure that we fully understand the reality of everyone involved in the actual production – from operators and skilled workers to specialist and technicians. Whenever an issue arises – and preferably before – we facilitate the problem solving and the development of corrective and preventive measures that will allow the production to continue. Some upscaling challenges remain, and here, we play an instrumental part in overcoming the hurdles that limit our maximum capacity unnecessarily.

The job
As our new supporter, your days will be highly varied. Mostly, you will work around pipes, valves, pumps and chromatography columns and all the people that manage and handle them in their daily work. Sometimes, your expertise will be needed for problem solving – facilitating the systematic root cause finding that we can base corrective and preventive measures on.

At other times, optimisations will be your focus – making sure that we will be able to meet the demands of the future. We harvest huge amounts of data, and the identification of trends, potential and risk through extensive data analysis, is a major source of new initiatives. Making us ready for Industry 4.0, where online sampling and real-time corrections will enable an even more agile production setup, will be your strategic concern, providing you with the opportunity to move us to the absolute forefront of what is currently technologically possible.

The position is highly visible – everyone here will soon know you, because of your contributions to the improved effectiveness and easier workdays for all of us. Sometimes, issues cannot be solved inside our team or department – so to ensure that you have all the information and knowledge you need, you will often find yourself working across the organisation, providing you with valuable business insights that we expect you to transform into solid solutions and ambitious, obtainable goals.

The job merits that you are well qualifies in English as well as in Danish, enabling you to have highly technical discussions with all of your colleagues.

Most importantly, you have a feel for large machinery like ours – pumps and pipes rarely surprises you because of this instinct and the more than 3 years of professional post-graduate experience you have built. You probably have an educational background within marine technology, food production or pharma, most likely with an engineering degree. For this position, a BA Eng. is a minimum, as we will count on your analytic skills and academic know-how in qualifying and validating the initiatives that will make us ready for the future of Industry 4.0. Although chromatography and similar processes play extensive parts in our setup, chemical expertise is not a main concern here, as most of the job tasks will be mechanical of nature.

People will tell us that you are great at setting the direction and energise people around you on your ideas. You can demonstrate to us how this energy is transformed into solid results, and how you never compromise on quality. We expect you to at least have a reasonable understanding of the regulatory demands we work under, and the motivation to learn more about it quickly. In general, you create trustful relations with ease, you thrive in the exchange of knowledge and you are a good listener, when a colleague comes to you with a technical issue, making sure you get all the information you need to make a difference.

Working at Novo Nordisk
We improve the lives of millions of people living with diabetes and hemophilia, in 180 countries around the globe. We share a strong sense of responsibility towards our end users, the environment and society as a whole. At Novo Nordisk, you will be met with trust, interesting challenges and a variety of personal opportunities.

Being an integral part of the local infrastructure, and with 15 factories covering the 1.350.000 square meters, the Novo Nordisk site close to Kalundborg is a small city in itself. Here, 3.300 employees produce half the global supply of insulin, along with several of Novo Nordisks Biopharma products, where NovoSeven® is one.
