FRIDAY, 24 SEPTEMBER

This evening is devoted to exploring the field of job and career, starting with a warm welcome by Mayor of Employment and Integration in Copenhagen, Cecilia Lonning-Skovgaard. Public and private experts, including the Danish tax authorities, employees’ associations and trade unions, will be present to guide you through the Danish tax system, traditional models of collective bargaining and the inescapable codes of Danish workplace culture. You will also find professional guidance on job search and career development together with plenty of opportunities to mingle and widen your network in casual surroundings oozing of good old Danish ‘hygge’.

This day is devoted to exploring the field of housing, job and social life, starting with a warm welcome by Mayor of Culture and Leisure in Copenhagen, Franciska Rosenkilde. With a lively fair representing unique organisations from the housing market, banking sector and cultural scene in Greater Copenhagen, we invite you to engage in talks, debates and activities all day. You will be guided through the jungle of housing options, banking services, tax laws, language classes and bombarded with great inspiration on kick-starting your social life, not to mention, local delicacies to satisfy your appetite. The festivities continue even after 15.00 with an after-event taking place in one of the city’s most remarkable culture houses.
