Senior Executive Job Opportunities in Denmark

All AESC member executive search firms in Denmark have access to BlueSteps, a career management service for senior executives used to source candidates for senior executive positions in Denmark. Placements are made on all levels, from Director to CEO jobs. So why is the executive recruitment market growing in Denmark and why are Executive Search Firms there seeking executive talent?

Denmark’s trademark as the country with the highest standard of living in the world draws from its expansive government welfare system, among other influences. Though the global financial crisis stressed its “flexicurity” system, the nation’s unemployment rate recovered to 4.80% in 2012 with the halving of its unemployment benefits period and the creation of a job activation program.

Denmark’s economy is composed of many small and medium sized firms, and is particularly strong in pharmaceuticals, maritime shipping, and renewable energy. As a nation with scant natural resources, it depends heavily upon foreign trade with other member nations of the European Union, mainly in the exportation of machinery and equipment, foodstuffs, and chemicals. Foreign investors benefit from one of the world’s most open economies with a low tariff of 1.6%. Denmark remains at a sound fiscal position, the strongest in the EU with the help of the coalition government’s latest stimulus to the economy.
