Time to spare. Money to spend
As an expat in Denmark you’ll most probably experience work/life balance like you’ve never experienced before.
A number of studies have shown that many Europeans have to make sacrifices between their career and their family life or personal time. If you want more ‘out of office’ time, your career advancement and bank account can suffer. For example: Half of British workers regret missing their children growing up, and one in three British women would take a pay cut to get more time with their families*. Does it have to be this way?
In Denmark you can have an interesting job, a great career and be an attentive parent. A late meeting in Denmark will probably last until 17:00. That’s when it is likely to start in many other countries. Most of the 67.000 expats in Denmark find this style the most appealing thing about working here**.
So welcome to a country where a great career goes hand in hand with time to spare. For the cherry on top, the salary level is high compared to most other countries in the world. Of course, the cost of living is high too, but relatively speaking, most expats typically experience a higher quality of living in Denmark than in their home country. So not only will you have extra time to spare, but money as well.
