After the application deadline, we screen and evaluate all applications in order to select the
candidates we would like to progress to a personal interview. We value our human capital
and due to that fact – recruitment processes are also led internally.
First interview – phone screening
The purpose of the interview is to validate information from the application and get insights
about the candidate’s motivation and expectations for this position.
Areas to be covered in the interview:
1. Relevant work experience.
2. Attraction to this position.
3. Attitude, motivation.
4. Competencies needed.
Languages, IT skills.
Second interview and assessment
The selected candidates are invited to attend job interview. Typically, the recruiting manager
and a department colleague or a Resourcing Team member will participate in the interview.
The aim of the interview is:
1. to provide you with insight into the framework and opportunities in the job role, as well
as in the department and the Arla business overall.
2. to evaluate your professional and personal qualifications.
3. to provide you with the opportunity to decide whether the job matches your expectations
For leadership and higher specialist positions, we use a range of assessment tools
devised to assess skills relevant to the particular role, e.g. language tests, numerical and verbal
reasoning assessments, as well as an online personality questionnaire that reviews behaviour
and preferred working styles.
The personality questionnaire is one of the tools used as a basis for the second interview, so
that we ensure we gain a complete representation of you. We believe that a thorough recruitment
process is crucial in order to ensure that we hire the right person for the job, team and company.
Dependent on where the role will be based, we will obtain references from your former employer.
Naturally, this only takes place in agreement with you. If we offer you the job, you will be notified verbally
and then the offer letter would be sent to you as soon as possible.
If you are not invited to attend an interview, you will either receive a rejection email. If you have
attended an interview with us, you will receive verbal/written notification of the outcome of your interview.
