Working in Denmark

Working in Denmark and the culture is very much different from other countries. Here you can read about the Danish model, work environment and union membership.

Denmark holds the European record for most women on the labour market. A reason is that the opportunities to get a job are equal among men and women, which is an important aspect if you are a woman looking for a job abroad.

Furthermore, the salary level is by law required to be the same for both men and woman performing the same job. Women work an average of 35 hours a week compared to 41 hours a week for men. These issues also make Denmark a very relevant choice for couples seeking jobs for both parties.
