Skilled labor

The lack of specialists such as software developers, engineers and researchers in the area makes Southern Denmark a great place for highly qualified labor, especially because you find many small and medium sized companies in the region. You have a relative easy access to Copenhagen from Odense, which opens for even more work opportunities. In case the companies work with English speaking customers, suppliers or already has hired internationals, you will find many job opportunities in the area.


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 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. In general make sure to have a contract before you travel to Denmark.
