Working and living in Denmark
Denmark has a lot to offer. The Danish welfare society is characterised by a highly developed welfare system with childcare, schools healthcare, etc. Danish companies offer good working conditions, modern facilities and high-quality technical equipment. Competence development is highly prioritized and most workplaces regularly offer continuing education to their employees.
Previous studies have shown that a majority of foreign national workers in Denmark felt that their quality of life increased while living in Denmark. Although it is a result of several different factors, many highlight the positive balance between family life and career in Denmark. Foreign nationals who come to Denmark often mention safety and security as the country’s most important characteristics. As a foreign national, it is possible to get by easily in Denmark without speaking Danish from the start as nearly all Danes speak English.
Workindenmark has three centres, located in Copenhagen, Odense and Aarhus, where you can call in and get help with issues related to job search, relocation, rules etc.
