I have gathered a list of the best Denmark Job sites for job seekers, since for most expats, finding a job is paramount to having a job life here. You can either search for specific jobs in Denmark or place your CV or resume on file and see what the Danish work place has to offer. Good luck in your hunt for a job.
It is not always easy to secure the job YOU want, since most jobs garner 100s of applications, so persistence is a must. Working in Denmark has lots of good information about how to get a job in Denmark. Jobindex and Jobnet are the largest Denmark job sites and should be one of your first places to search and list your CV/resume. Jobindex is availableto the public, while Jobnet is the government job site and you need to register with your CPR information.
At Jobindex you will find mostly private companies and a very large database of
companies all over Denmark. I would consider this to be the best of the Denmark job sites for most people.
If you search on Jobindex, you will begin to notice that when you click on the announcement it may take you to another job site or page. This is a good way to search for other jobs on their pages too, so keep a running list of other sites that you are rerouted to and search their database.
It is a good idea to post your CV or resume on all these sites, as many companies do search these sites for job candidates.
Below are a couple of other Denmark job sites that you may wish to check out are listed below. Each site has something worthwhile, but you will soon discover the one that suits your neeeds best.
Here are some other sites you may wish to try, but I am not familiar enough with any of them to tell you which are good and which are bad. You will have to do your own research
To find other Denmark job sites listing jobs in Denmark, log into google and put “job i danmark” without the quotes and click the button that says “sider fra Danmark” (pages from Denmark); click Search (Google-søgning).
Since most of the sites are in Danish, you may run into a problem trying to read them.
Here’s how to solve that:
You can click on the links on that page and they will still be in English. (If it still comes up in Danish, just copy and paste the Danish text you’re trying to read into the Google Translate window and click “Translate”.
Note: Some adverts for jobs in Denmark will be listed in English, especially by companies such as Novo Nordisk, Siemens and other international companies who are searching worldwide for employees.
Other places to look for jobs are in the local papers. If you live in Denmark, you will be bombarded with free papers each week in your mailbox, and many contain job listings, especially in the local area. Not quite so many now a days, but there are still some local job listed there. Also remember your social media sites, especially linkedin and facebook that could easily get you a job interview or lead to the perfect job.
Also, you should check out the regional papers below. You’ll find more listings in the Wednesday and Sunday editions.
The Danish newspapers do have job listings, yet they are fewer and fewer, yet do not let that stop you from checking them out. The papers often have higher end jobs listed, so it can easily pay off to check them out.
Copenhagen Post - Danish news in English
If you are a professional in certain fields like education, medicine, marketing, etc, it would be wise to join a union or a-kasse and fagforeningen and have access to their database of jobs. There are several job sites specifically for high end professionals and you can get access through them via your fagforeningen. They will not get you a job, but can help you with information on where to look and how to go about getting the right job. See more about it here.
There are many temp agencies (vikar bureaus) around Denmark, and you can register with as many as you like. They will contact you if they have something that suits you. Some of the largest ones are Manpower, Adecco, JKS, Team Vikaren, Temp Team and Kelly Services. You will also find many local ones just by walking around town and looking at signs. Many will advertise on billboards.
I suggest you go to Gulex, which is the Danish version of the Yellow Pages. Put in “vikarbureau” and the name of the city where you are looking for an agency. If you want to work in Copenhagen, put in “vikarbureau københavn”. Again, you can use Google Translate if you have problems reading the text.
The benefit of working for a vikarbureau is that many specialize in certain fields and you can work at many different companies, where your interests lie and possibly find the right job that way. Other agencies cater to non-skilled workers and are not as picky about your danish language skills. This will give you time to learn Danish and search for better jobs requiring some Danish language.
I know many expats who started with vikar bureaus to get jobs and found good solid jobs. My wife is a perfect example. She started as a vikar and was later offered fulltime work and has transferred several times within the company.
This should get you started in finding jobs in Denmark.

If you plan to visit Denmark, it is important you understand that Danish time, Danish dates and the Danish clock are expressed a little bit differently. Not knowing can cause alot of confusion.
