About Djøf

As a foreign national in Denmark, it pays to be a member of a strong association. Djøf represents approx. 92,000 academics working at all levels of the private and public sectors. You are welcome too.

Denmark is a knowledge society where many jobs require employees with long-term educations who take responsibility and help their workplace to develop. Most Danish workplaces are founded on close and open cooperation between the management and employees.

Salaries and working conditions are largely regulated by collective agreements that are negotiated by organisations representing employers and wage earners, respectively. Without Government intervention.

In Denmark, about seven in ten employees are members of a wage earner organisation.
