About the companies

Over the last few years, Denmark has been facing a decrease in the unemployment rate. While this indicator is good for the economic welfare of the country, it also pinpoints the need of additional labour force for the companies or positions newly created. Thus, it has become an increasing struggle for companies to recruit locally especially for skilled workers, which is leading to the need of also international labour.

This workers’ shortage did not go unnoticed by the public institutions, so the Danish government proposed a plan to ease the recruitment of foreign workers, by proposing 21 initiatives to be enforced, such as rule simplification and bureaucracy, retention of international graduates, efforts to combat illegal labour and so on.

The low unemployment rates and the high need of specialized workers in Denmark has made it possible that, during the first half of 2019, the number of internationals that worked in Denmark reached its highest level since 2011.

The country is well-known for having a great work-life balance, an exciting business climate and for its welfare safety net. This, and many other reasons, are what drive foreigners to seek job opportunities here.

Our companies are primarily located in Southern Denmark, a region of 1.2 million people. This region is often called the “Gateway to Europe”, and is a dynamic growth area that enjoys a central geographical location in relation to the rest of the country and in relation to Germany, Denmark’s largest trading partner, and the rest of Europe.

The region’s core duties revolve around health, social services and special needs education, psychiatric services and regional development. It is also home to one of the largest and most modern hospitals in all Scandinavia, the Odense University Hospital, and hosts Denmark’s third largest university – the University of Southern Denmark.

This region is also home to many global players like Danfoss, Ecco Denmark and LEGO.
