Denmark Is Hiring! See the Jobs and Apply.

Denmark is a top choice for Americans moving abroad, but getting residency can be challenging. The country is popular for several reasons, including its high marks for human rights and its climate change preparedness. It often places first or second on the World Happiness Index.

There aren’t as many options to move to Denmark as there are in the neighboring Netherlands, who offers the easy-to-get DAFT visa for self-employed Americans. However, worker shortages in the country could open the floodgates for expats who want to bike to work (and everywhere else).

Denmark is looking for teachers, nurses, doctors, engineers, paramedics, florists, insurance agents, chefs, marketers, HR assistants, and many more. Here are complete lists of the in-demand roles that Denmark is recruiting for and how to apply.
