Our growth is your opportunity

Novo Nordisk is a global healthcare company with more than 90 years of innovation and leadership in diabetes care. This heritage has given us experience and capabilities that also enable us to help people defeat other serious chronic conditions: haemophilia growth disorders and obesity. Headquartered in Denmark Novo Nordisk employs approximately 42300 people in 75 countries and markets its products in more than 180 countries. In the insulin market we have maintained our position as the world leader with a market share of more than 50% by volume.

We are a growing company: We recruit approximately 5000 new colleagues globally every year and we expect this growth to continue. In 10 years’ time 75% of our employees will be located outside Denmark. Employees are able to develop skills and gain experience outside their own function and therefore follow their career path to new business areas while remaining with Novo Nordisk.
