The Danish labor market has really caught up again, after a hectic period of time caused by the covid-19 pandemic. Unemployment is low and now close to the level before the pandemic.
Lately, we have felt that directly as a recruitment agency, as it has become even more difficult to find the right competences and qualified candidates for companies than earlier. Companies are experiencing this as well.
What does this mean for you – and how are you supposed to react?
As it has become more difficult to find qualified candidates in Denmark, it is more relevant than ever before to loosen some of the nationality requirements.
“We have to be open for international candidates – that we actually already have in our society” says Christian Behrenthz Guldhammer, Business Unit Manager at NQR.
Speaking Danish fluently still is a requirement at many companies. This means that a lot of Engineers are having difficulties joining organizations in Denmark.
Generally speaking, Denmark is an attractive country for a lot of foreigners. Take advantage of this, look for candidates abroad and strengthen the diversity in your teams!
