As a job seeker you can also use JOBNET, which is the official homepage of the public jobcentre for all jobseekers and employers in Denmark. It is possible for you to look for jobs among many thousand vacant jobs, and you can also find contact information at the local job centres which can be found in all municipalities. Here you will find the JOBCENTRE of Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality. Use Google Translate for translation of the link pages. As a job seeker you can also use Facebook Group Jobs i Ringkøbing-Skjern.

WORKINDENMARK is the official Danish website for international recruitment and job search. If you are a foreign job seeker you can search for jobs in the job database and find relevant information about working and living in Denmark. The European jobcentre EURES is the international department of the job centres servicing employers and job seekers in connection with recruitment or job search across borders.

On the Eures portal you will find information in several languages about the Danish labour market, vacancies, and contact information about a Eures advisor if you need personal guidance or cannot find answers to your questions.


Temporary Employment

In Denmark it is often possible to work on a fixed-term contract or on a temporary contract. Some jobs are advertised as vacant, others are being filled via professional networks or temp agencies. You may consult the internet for agencies within your line of business, or you may contact JKS, a Ringkøbing-based company which is one of Denmark’s leading temp- and recruitment companies.


Education and Qualifications

When you apply for a job from abroad you normally have an education, which does not quite match a Danish education, and you may need to document your qualifications to have them recognised.

The Danish Ministry of Education and Science is responsible for the assessment of foreign educations, and you may find more information and an assessment form HIER

If you can persuade your new employer to apply for you the process of assessing your educations and qualifications will be considerably faster, since the Ministry have a special service arrangement for companies wishing to employ foreign labour.

Ioana and Sorin

Romanian Family:

We have been made very welcome

”We love our country, Romania, but we have also grown very fond of Denmark which has become our home,” says 37-year-old Sorin Ungureanu who - together with his wife Ioana and their two children - find themselves so much at home that in the autumn of 2017 they bought the house of their dreams in Borris. Borris is a town with approximately 800 inhabitants in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality – geographically the biggest municipality in Denmark.

“We have been living here since 2011 and our children are fully integrated in the local community and gradually, so are we. We have been made to feel really welcome in this town. People gladly help us and we are very happy about living here,” Sorin says whilst simultaneously smiling at Erling Søndergaard - one of the passionate locals who likes to give a lending hand. Erling has helped the family with the purchase of their house, and as a friend of the family he joins our conversation as to why Sorin and Ioana came to Denmark and what it is like for a foreign family to move to Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.

”We are also happy having you here. We can tell that you like being here, and you have also done a great deal to become a part of the community,” Erling points out referring to the fact that Sorin among others has been active in leading a father-child gymnastics team and a table tennis team in town.

Charlotte and Ian

Danish/English couple:

Wish of living the good life

”Above all, we just wanted to be together and live the good life. We love being together” says the Danish/English couple Charlotte and Ian Coles who have settled down in an idyllic old farm house at Kloster, halfway between the Ringkøbing Fjord and the Stadil Fjord and close to the town of Ringkøbing.

It is not surprising that the couple had a wish of the good life in peaceful surroundings with lots of nature. Ian was a Major in the British Army, which meant the couple had moved around military bases in England and Germany for years. Ian had also been deployed close to the world’s war zones, leaving Charlotte alone and suffering months of deprivation during their first year in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.

They bought the old farmhouse overlooking the Stadil Fjord in 2013, and Charlotte moved in full-time, while Ian could only come home as work allowed. But now the good life has really started as Ian retired this summer.

Ian is 48 years old and he has just landed a job with Vestas - the wind turbine manufacturer – as a Project Training Leader.
