Ballerup attracts workers to and from the Greater Copenhagen area

Businesses in Ballerup enjoy easy access to qualified workers. Ballerup has six business parks and the three large clusters, life science, information and communication technology (ICT) and fintech, which attract specialised workers from Denmark and abroad.

Ballerup attracts workers to and from the Greater Copenhagen area, which covers the capital city of Copenhagen as well as eastern Denmark and southern Sweden. Greater Copenhagen has a population of 3.9 million, a large portion of which are highly educated. Businesses in Ballerup thus have access to a large workforce with many different qualifications and can attract highly qualified labourers.

The infrastructure here is first class and every day 35,000 workers commute to work in one of the business parks by S-train, bus, car or bicycle.

Denmark has Europe's most flexible employment and job termination laws with employee security (flexsecurity), which makes it an attractive labour market for both employers and employees.

Recruitment of international candidates
Ballerup facilitates contact with international digital recruitment campaigns within Greater Copenhagen, giving businesses access to international candidates. By participating in a campaign, businesses gain qualified applicants in areas that require special competences and experience.

When international candidates come to Ballerup, they are assisted by the International House in getting a civil registration number, being registered in the Danish systems and getting advice on how to integrate safely and as quickly as possible, among other things.
