About the department

The position is based in Device Manufacturing and Sourcing (DMS), which is responsible for managing the global supply chain for moulded components to all pre-filled devices in Novo Nordisk (e.g. FlexTouch®, FlexPen®, Vagifem® etc.). Our production site produces components for disposable medical devices and we perform automated pre-assembly of the devices.

The IT team’s job is to implement changes, correct errors, optimise and maintain the production IT/OT systems and provide support to the users of the systems. Furthermore, the team supports our external suppliers as some of the IT systems are global. Lastly the team runs diverse IT projects both internally and externally and collaborates closely with external IT consultants and vendors. Since we are a Pharmaceutical company, all operation and maintenance of the systems must be in compliance with our instructions and documented to maintain validated state. To cover the need for support in the production 24/7, the team has an on-call service rotation handled by 4 colleagues.

The position

As Manager, you set the IT strategy for the site and ensure that the IT team can support the internal and external production, and you ensure coordination of operation, security and development within your area. You lead by example, set the direction, and ensure that your team is highly motivated.

Furthermore, you motivate and develop your staff, ensuring that we have the right resources and competences at hand at all times. Finally, you lead by following the LEAN principles, where continuous improvement and systematic problem-solving are a natural part of everyday work.

You will be a part of the Management team in Business Supports with 9 other leaders, and you will enjoy a broad range of contacts internally as you will collaborate closely with the production teams, the management teams and external stakeholders.


You have an academic degree within engineering or IT (or equivalent) combined with min 5-7 years of relevant work experience with IT systems and infrastructure in a manufacturing company or from a consultancy.

Ideally, you have gained 1-3 years of experience managing a team either as Project Manager or as Team leader. It is an advantage if you have in-depth knowledge of SLA agreements and IT systems such as SAP, Manufacturing Execution System (LMES), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Proficy iFix. Experience and/or interest with Industry 4.0 is expected.

As a person, you have a strong quality mind-set, and you have the ability prioritise and lead the team even in busy periods where you ensure that support tasks and project deliveries are properly planned and executed.

You possess a solid ability to build relationships and create trust with both internal and external stakeholders. Further, you communicate clearly with many different stakeholders and are committed to both supporting and empowering your team. This includes giving feedback, coaching and developing your employees. Finally, as all members of the production teams speak Danish, you must have proficiency in this language.
