Getting a job in Denmark

Education and qualifications

When looking for a job in Denmark it might make sense to have your foreign education assessed by the government authority, ‘Cirius’. This shows the Danish equivalent of your level of education and makes it easier for potential employers to see how qualified you are!

Of course, having your education assessed does not guarantee you will get a job, as the employer will need to decide whether or not you are suitable for the specific requirements of the job. However it does make it easier to compete with local applicants. You can get more information on the assessment and find the relevant application form on the Cirius  website.

Some jobs, such as those regulated by law, require applicants to obtain authorisation rather than an assessment. Professions in this category include any work with hazardous materials, electricians, various medical professions and more. You should refer to the Cirius website for the full list of professions in Denmark that require authorisation.
