Working in Denmark

Working in Denmark

It’s a big thing moving to a foreign country to work. Especially if you bring your family with you. Microsoft will help making the relocation process as smooth as possible. This is why we have developed a wide range of initiatives and programs to help you with all the little things that always end up meaning so much. And yes: the Danes speak Danish, but they also speak English. In other words, speaking Danish is not a prerequisite for working here.
