Purpose of the position

DFDS is developing rapidly, heading for a modernised, digitised and more scalable version of the organisation to secure continuous growth and profitability. To realise these strong ambitions, there is a need to strengthen the workforce capabilities, through a combination of focused talent management efforts and targeted workforce development.

In addition to strengthening the organisational capabilities, the ambition is also to create strong levers for a smooth and fruitful collaboration across business units and geographies, locally and globally, whilst preserving the entrepreneurial spirit which has always been a strong characteristic of DFDS.

Develop us and develop yourself along the way

We can offer you a key role in a growing international company. Our organisation operates with an entrepreneurial, collaborative spirit and energy – and a high level of execution. For the right person, the task of implementing an operative Talent and Workforce Development strategy in this organisation will offer great opportunities for both personal and professional growth.

Main responsibilities

As Head of Talent and Workforce Development, you will be responsible for developing and implementing a strategy for a combined talent management and workforce development approach. You will report to the Chief People Officer of DFDS and be based at our headquarters in Nordhavn, Copenhagen.

You will lead a highly skilled team of trainers across the DFDS Group (in and outside Denmark) who have a successful track record of conducting in-house training, in areas such as talent programs, leadership programs and sales training. You will work closely with business leaders, regional HR Directors and HR Business Partners, to assess talents and training needs and deploy appropriate means to develop. Part of this co-operation also includes a contribution to driving a Diversity & Inclusion agenda and promoting a culture of continuous improvement and learning.

The building of the talent development framework will need to encompass, multiple and creative ways to effectively reach the necessary audiences (virtual, online, interactive, face-to-face, coaching, train the trainer etc.) You are also expected to be instrumental in creating and delivering some parts of our trainings and workshops for key stakeholders.

Your initial, primary tasks will be to:

  • Develop a talent and workforce development strategy that encompasses the values of DFDS
  • Develop a talent review approach that combines well with DFDS’ performance management approach
  • Assess value of current training programs, incl. digital readiness and business impact – and identify/prioritise future training and development themes
  • Develop specific, functional career paths and supporting development programs

Preferred candidate profile

You are driven and passionate about working closely with the business, whilst being visionary about what it requires to develop future capabilities. More specifically, we are looking for a person with:

  • A completed degree in Business Administration or similar
  • At least 10 years of relevant experience, incl. strong facilitation and coaching skills
  • Strong business acumen and digital savviness
  • Cross-cultural understanding
  • Experience from IT, FMCG or transportation/ logistics as a plus

We also expect that you thrive amongst entrepreneurial and execution focused colleagues, and that you can define and sell a development focused agenda and build strong relationships with key stakeholders. We expect you to have worked in-depth with talent management and leadership development, in either corporate environments or in management consulting – and we believe you have a genuine interest and experience in delivering training and talent solutions according to the latest thinking on impactful training (incl. digital solutions).
