Live and Work in Denmark

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, The National Labour Market Authority and the Work in Denmark centers are introducing a new website called Denmark Update. The site is targeting foreign workers considering living and working in Denmark. Denmark Update is especially targeting visitors on the Work in Denmark portal. Visitors who have uploaded their résumé in the CV-database at the Work in Denmark portal will be offered an automatic notification when updates on Denmark Update are made.

The purpose of the website is, among other things, to draw a picture of Denmark as a living and working space for foreign workers. This includes information on how families settle in and moreover, to give a realistic impression on the opportunities and conditions that exists for foreign workers, seeking jobs in Denmark. The website is considered a supplement to the Work in Denmark portal and is linked to other relevant websites for potential foreign workers.

The website can be visited here:
