Job Market in Central Denmark

Updated 7.11.2018

The job market in Central Denmark is quite interesting because the unemployment is low and there is an expectation of growth. Actually there is a fear that not all companies will be able to attract the talents they need, because many talents would look for jobs in Copenhagen. For this reason you find good opportunities in Central Denmark.

Specialists are demanded In

●   Engineering
●   IT-development
●   Metal Works
●   Construction

In Aarhus, you will for instance find a research institute for water technology, architects, and IT-companies. In the western part of the region, cities such as Herning, Skjern and Holstebro are known for the production of wind turbines, manufacturing and metal works. While Bjerringbro has a global engineering company producing pumps. The small town Brande hosts a global wind turbine company, while the city of Struer hosts an international TV & Radio producer. So there are many technical jobs in the region.


There are more niche jobs, which are not in these sectors or occupations, and they are soon coming here on Eurocareers, so look out for interesting job-ads and international minded companies. But do note that in the biggest companies they often look for heavy expertise, while if you are less experienced you could as well look for medium sized companies to have a better chance of getting a job. Make sure to have a contract before you travel to Denmark, because in some areas the competition is strong - and it is expensive to live in Denmark without a job.
