JYSK Graduate Programme

Become an IT Graduate in JYSK 

September will see the start of a new team of JYSK IT Graduates, and YOU have the opportunity to kick-start your IT career in a global organisation that focuses on Customer First, Omni Channel Business, Unified Commerce and Digitalization.


The duration of our IT Graduate Programme is 18-24 months, and you will have a customized, personal programme which will ensure that you get all the competences and tools that you need. As part of the IT Graduate Programme you will spend time with different departments within the organisation – which will broaden your view of the JYSK core business and enable you to form relations across the organisation.


As an IT Graduate in JYSK you will have a unique opportunity to put your theoretical education into practice when you work with experienced colleagues. You assume responsibility for your own learning, and we make sure you have the best possible conditions for learning and for developing your skills. 


You will be employed by JYSK Nordic – the division that takes care of all JYSK IT solutions, from development to implementation and maintenance within SAP, JAVA and Drupal. You will be involved in the development processes from day one until final implementation, and you will assume responsibility for your own projects.


After completion of the IT Graduate Programme, most Graduates are continuing as a consultant or a developer at JYSK. 


Our IT Graduate Programme has two tracks – a business-oriented and a technical track.


You have just finished or will soon finish your studies: Computer scientist, Master of Science in Information Technology, Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration (or similar). You would like to kick-start your IT career and are exited to have a steep learning curve. You want to put all of the theoretical learnings from your studies into practice.

Things that are characteristic of you:

  • You have an interest in and a flair for IT
  • You find it easy to learn and master new systems
  • Challenges do not stop you – instead you look for new solutions
  • You are able to work independently, and you have a keen business awareness
  • You are ambitious and a quick learner
  • You have a strong analytical mind


JYSK invests considerable resources in the best possible IT solutions.

Our IT department is responsible for all IT solutions used within JYSK and consists of app. 50 employees.

We do not outsource tasks - we develop, implement and manage all tasks internally, by means of SAP, JAVA and Drupal.

You will be involved in development processes from start to finish – and you will have extensive responsibility and free hands within your field of expertise

SAP is the backbone of JYSK and today our IT department runs one of the largest SAP retail solutions in Denmark - based on the latest technology and managed entirely by JYSK IT consultants. When necessary, SAP is supported by customised JAVA solutions, while all company websites are built and managed in Drupal and hosted on an internal platform.


Tasks and responsibilities of the IT Department:

  • Plan, design, build, optimize and run IT solutions (SAP systems, JAVA, Drupal etc.)
  • Project management and control of IT implementation projects
  • Operate and manage our internal hosting centre
  • Handle server operations: Installation and update of new servers
  • Security and documentation of IT solutions
  • Develop and maintain our BI solutions. Going from descriptive analytics to predictive and prescriptive analytics


When you grow. We grow.

“JYSK is striving to be the frontrunner within their field when it comes to digital solutions, and being part of an organization who are this ambitious about their IT strategy is truly motivating. As a graduate I get to be involved not only in operations but also at the tactical and strategical level of my field. I have a say at the table, my opinions are valued and if I want responsibilities they are there for the taking!”

“One of the many great things about beginning your work life at JYSK is the welcome and thorough introduction you get, helping you to transition smoothly from academic life to start thinking more in terms of how you can exploit your knowledge and critical thinking in making a real difference and impact at JYSK. When you are ready to make this impact and have been given the tools, the rest is on you, and if you bring dedication and show just how ambitious you are, there are many possibilities.”
