Pioneer a brighter future
At Novozymes, we work in close partnership with our customers and the global community to make a sustainable impact.

Dynamic Marketing Manager, Household Care, Bagsværd Denmark
We are looking for a dynamic, global go-getter with lots of drive to join one of our Household Care Category Teams. You are early in your career and eager to take on new challenges working with like-minded colleagues around the world to achieve our ambitious growth targets. You will be leading global category initiatives – with a special focus on a driving penetration in emerging markets. Success relies on the ability to develop sharp positioning that resonates with the local market and secures alignment with and commitment from the regional teams.

Your key areas of responsibility include possessing solid understanding of our customers’ business as well as consumer and market trends and needs – and turning those into new opportunities for the category. You will also be driving projects from early concept development to successful commercialization, bridging corporate strategic initiatives with regional realities. This covers tasks such as defining go-to-market strategy, presentations to customers and securing product supply. Support to regional activities and customer engagements would also be your responsibility.

An important aspect of this role is to work closely with R&D to sufficiently understand the technical details and translate them into commercial opportunities. Managing stakeholders and interests on a global scale is key in this position.

The job will be based out of Bagsværd, Denmark and be on local employment terms. You will be reporting to the Head of the Category.

In this position you need to:
  • Have a business education (BSc or MSc) or a technical education (e.g. BSc or MSc) ideally combined with an MBA or similar
  • Have 3-5+ years of experience from commercial roles, where you have proven your strong business acumen, cross-functional leadership and marketing skills
  • Have project management and strong communication skills (a must); international work experience is an advantage and so is experience from the Household Care or FMCG industry
  • Be a team player and be able to work independently with responsibility for shaping and driving your own projects. You are persistent and can handle many tasks simultaneously while maintaining focus and a positive attitude also in times of headwind or heavy workload. You walk the extra mile to make the project succeed
  • Be analytical, structured and possess strong problem solving skills. You have an operational and pragmatic approach to creating results. You have a high level of drive and are motivated by seeing the implementation and results of your work
  • Be curious and enjoy working in cross-functional, and cross-cultural teams with many stakeholders from around the globe
  • Speak and write English fluently (required). Danish is an advantage but not a pre-requisite
  • Have the capability and willingness to travel as needed (about 25%)
