Welcome to Odense and International Community Odense!

Here, you'll learn about the following:


  • International Community Odense

  • Job search guidance for accompanying partners



We have developed this job search guide for you and other international jobseekers to address the challenges you might encounter as an expat looking for a job in Denmark. Job searching in a new country can pose different challenges; not only are you new to the country, culture, and language, but the whole process of job seeking differs from country to country.



This guide will provide you with tips and tricks on where to search for jobs in Denmark, how to write a CV, compose a cover letter, how to prepare for a job interview, and much more.



If you have landed a job already, you can still use this guide to find information about terms of employment, Danish work culture, trade unions, unemployment insurance, and other topics.



If you have comments, questions, or suggestions for other topics to include in this guide, you are welcome to contact us. 


Best of luck with your job search!



The team of International Community Odense



International Community Odense

International Community Odense is an initiative by the City of Odense (Danish: Odense Kommune). We offer services, events and activities for highly skilled international employees and their families to help you settle in Odense. We can help you find your first home, guide you on practical matters such as registration and childcare, guide accompanying partners on job search, help you discover Odense, expand your social network, and much more.


On our website, you will find a lot of practical information about moving to, living in, and working in Odense - and Denmark in general. The website is also a good place to start if you are looking for practical information about everyday life and activities in Odense.


Another great resource is our Facebook page, where we post our upcoming events and activities and link to other interesting things going on in and around Odense. You can also find us on LinkedIn, and Instagram where you are welcome to take over the profile for a whole week to show your tips for a good expat life in Odense. You can find a link to our newsletter and social media at the bottom of the page. 



Job search guidance for accompanying partners

If you have accompanied your partner to Denmark because of his/her job, you can seek guidance and counseling on job search from International Community Odense’s partner career adviser who offers individual job counseling, workshops/seminars on job search and an application review service.


Our partner career adviser offers spouse service if you meet these three criteria:

  • You have a partner who is a highly skilled employee with a company located in the City of Odense
  • You and your partner are not Danish
  • You are actively looking for jobs
