Although our outlook is not limited by any borders, Danske Commodities' roots (and our headquarters) lie in Denmark’s second biggest city: Aarhus. Here, you can learn more about working and living in “the city of smiles”.
Aarhus is perfect for anyone who enjoys the buzz of city life and the beauty of nature in equal measure. If you are into outdoor activities, you can enjoy the sea, stunning beaches and forests within easy reach from the city centre. All you really need to get around is a decent bicycle.
Education is a key focus area and a true point of difference for Aarhus. With more than 55,000 students, you will find one of the highest concentrations of students in northern Europe, and the general education level is twice as high as the rest of Denmark.
According to international rankings by IMD, Denmark is at the top of the list when it comes to quality of life. Aarhus offers a high standard of living, an excellent work-life balance and a safe environment for your family and children.
Day-care is both high in quality and relatively inexpensive, which means that career ambitions and a fulfilling family life are easily combined. Danske Commodities' flexible work environment further supports this.
Aarhus has been crowned European Capital of Culture in 2017. The city houses inspiring venues, theatres and museums, as well as a wide selection of shops, cafés and restaurants – some are Michelin-starred. A condensed shopping experience, combined with a sprawling cultural scene, gives Aarhus a dynamic urban atmosphere. This is part of why Aarhus is one of the most attractive cities in Denmark.
