New Jobsite for “Highly-Skilled” Workers in Denmark
In response to increasing competition for attracting and retaining foreign talent (see “Denmark’s Competitiveness Threatened – Reaching Critical Limits“), The Ministry of Employment, in cooperation with a number of other government institutions, and a newly formed group called the “Consortium for Global Talent” consisting of representatives from major Danish global corporations including A.P. Moller-Maersk, Carlsberg, Danske Bank Group, D O N G Energy, The LEGO Group, Novo Nordisk and Vestas Wind Systems, has launched a new recruiting website for connecting Danish companies with international experts or those that are categorized as “highly skilled” workers.
The website, launched last November as part of the workindenmark.dk website, is intended to connect Danish companies with foreign job seekers. The site can be found at www.workindenmark.dk / highly-skilled. It is said to have the largest number of English jobs for highly skilled professionals.
The site features job listings and a CV database, as well as a considerable amount of information about working and living in Denmark. In addition, recruitment information and jobs assistance is available from workindenmark centers located in Aarhus, Odense and Copenhagen. Workindenmark.dk is backed by a number of governmental institutions including The Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, and The Danish Ministry of Education, Welfare, and Taxation.
