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.

Family too

Have to pick up your kids from kindergarten before 16:30? No problem. Your manager may very well have to do the same thing every second day.

Not having to worry about spending enough time with your family is a big reason why so many expats say the quality of life in Denmark is very high*. The childcare opportunities are also highly appreciated.

What about maternity leave, you may ask. Well, in Denmark we use the term parental leave. A total of 52 paid weeks – yes, that’s right – is distributed between the mother and father. The mother gets 4 weeks before the due date, 14 weeks after. The father gets 2 weeks after, and then the parents get another 32 weeks to be distributed freely between them. You probably won’t find more generous benefits in many other countries.

DID YOU KNOW:

that you are entitled to take 1 paid day of leave on the first day on which your child is sick?
