Finding Vacancies in Denmark

When first starting to think of working in Denmark, there are many things to take into account. Where do you start and how do you find a job in Denmark?

Walking on arrows on road

Before you start writing applications to a vacant position or start approaching companies to hear of job possibilities, it is vital that you spend some time researching your options on the labour market

Some sectors face skills shortages and some do not. See sectors facing skills shortages

If your work experience lies within other sectors or areas, you may not find a lot of advertised jobs. This does not mean that it is impossible to get a job within your area of expertise, but it may be worth considering:

  • How long do you intend to stay in Denmark? Employers will invest time and money on getting you introduced to the job and the company, so most employers will look for candidates who are able to stay in the job for a minimum of 2-3 years.
  • Are you willing to commute to work? Consider how far you are able and willing to spend on commuting and start searching for interesting companies/jobs within this geographical area.
  • Do you wish to work within your field or are you willing to explore other possibilities? Perhaps you can explain how your previous experience and skills are usable in another job?
