Fördomsfönster Öresund - a Danish-Swedish Recruitment project
Special support for those with a foreign background who want to look for a job in Denmark!
If you are new to Sweden, or if you were born here but may not yet have found your place in the Swedish labour market, it may seem like an impossible task to go and look for a job in Denmark. Fördomsfönster Öresund is a project designed to make it easier, both for you as a job seeker and for the employers who are looking for new employees.
You who are born or raised outside of the Nordic countries, or who have parents who are, can participate in the project by becoming a so-called candidate. As a candidate, you will receive support and advice in your job search by experts on diversity recruitment and on the Danish labour market and working life. You will also get help to become visible to a wide range of Danish employers, from a variety of industries, and have your specific competence matched against their needs.
Please visit the project website for more information to apply to become a candidate.
All help is free of charge. However, in order to be able to offer you – and others like you – the most effective help, the project also conducts research into the ideas and feelings held by both job seekers and employers about the opportunity to work or to recruit "on the other side of the sound". In this work, your input is essential. Start contributing by taking the survey below.
The project is a collaboration between Mine, Föreningen NORDEN - Danmark, Centre for Scandinavian Studies Copenhagen - Lund (Lund University) and Øresundsinstituttet. It co-financed by the EU program Interreg Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak.

General rules for third country citizens living in Sweden or Denmark
As a citizen of a country outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland, you do not benefit from the free movement of labour that enables you to work in all these countries without a work permit, but there may nevertheless be ways in which you can become a cross-border worker if you comply with certain conditions.
