Jobsøgning
Working in Denmark Here you can read about the Danish labor market and why it is a good idea to join a trade union. You will also find information on the 3F job database, and how 3F can help you find a job.

Arriving to a new country can be a difficult and confusing process. One of the challenges is finding a good job.

In 3F, we want to make sure that you are decently treated – e.g., getting paid the wages you are entitled to. In Denmark, rights of employment such as good wages and working conditions are secured in collective agreements between employers and trade unions negotiating on your behalf.

Unfortunately, not every employer will provide you with good conditions. This is one of the reasons why you should join our trade union: We will help you through the whole process from finding a job with good working conditions to checking your hiring contract – just like we help many other workers in Denmark.

Looking for work?

Please feel free to use 3F’s job database, 3F Jobformidling. You can find a link to the job database and a description of how to use it below here. Our database is the largest and best job database in Denmark. One of the most important tasks of 3F’s unemployment insurance fund (3FA – Faglig Fælles A-kasse) is to help unemployed find their next job. This is why we offer the job database, 3F Jobformidling.

How to use 3F's job database

3F job database consists of both a database of jobs and a database of CV's where you can be matched with a job if you have the right qualifications. The latter is for members of 3F and 3FA only.

Many of the jobs listed in the database are described in Danish – but there are also jobs in the database with English titles and text.

Go to 3F job database
The job database is very simple to use. There is a short English description of how you use the database on the frontpage. The database can be used regardless of whether you are a member of 3F or not.

3F job database consists of both a database of jobs and a database of CV's where you can be matched with a job if you have the right qualifications.

If you are a member of 3F, you also have the option of setting up a job agent and submitting your CV. With a "job agent" you can search for specific jobs. For example "carpenter - Ringsted". Then you will be notified when there is a vacancy.

Join 3F – Denmark’s largest trade union and unemployment fund

In 3F, have great experience in helping foreigners get a job with good working conditions. You should not tolerate exploitation, but it can be difficult to discern a good working place to a bad one when newly arrived in a new country.

3F can help you with that. Due to our great organizing range of both skilled and unskilled workers in various industries and sectors as well as locally bound offices, we have a wide knowledge of open positions at workplaces with good conditions all around the country. We will help you through all the steps from application to checking your hiring contract.

In Denmark, we have no legal minimum wage requirement. Good wage and working conditions are secured through collective agreements which the trade unions negotiate on your behalf with the employers. This has ensured the highest minimum wages in the EU.

This means that in Denmark, the majority of workers are members of a trade union - in fact, the union density in Denmark is one of the highest in the world.
Your Danish colleagues will expect you to join a trade union when you enter employment.

We have collective agreements at more workplaces than any other Danish trade union. And our unemployment fund assists our members when they are in between jobs.

We organize both skilled and unskilled workers in many sectors and industries in the private as well as in the public sectors. With the range, we have a wide knowledge of the labor market and are able to guide and help you find a good job in Denmark.
3F organizes skilled and unskilled workers in many sectors and industries in the private as well as in the public sector. Our members work in the following sectors:
  • Transport
