Career Guidance for Professionals. Helping Retain International Talent in Denmark


Guidance. Direction. Strategy


OUR MISSION:

To support international professionals in securing employment. By providing expert knowledge and practical advice that helps them to thrive in the workplace in Denmark.

Our CEO


Hi, I am Leslea, and I founded English Job Denmark in 2019 in response to seeing international professionals struggling to navigate the job search in Denmark. This was confusing, because at the same time, I was hearing from companies that they could not source qualified candidates!


So, for the last 5 years I have worked as a career consultant and helped equip internationals with the knowledge and know-how about Danish work culture and the job-search process, so that companies can hire and retain this much-needed talent.


I also host and facilitate workshops, and have collaborations with both private and public organisations such as Djøf, Københavns Erhvervshus, and Copenhagen Kommune.


As an engaging speaker and motivator, I welcome the opportunity to discuss how I can support you.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

"We here at Københavns Erhvervshus had the privilege of diving into an electrifying workshop led by none other than Leslea Petersen, the mastermind behind English Job Denmark! With her wealth of expertise forged through private mentoring journeys, Leslea took our international talents on a thrilling ride through the exhilarating world of career transitions. She used her vast knowledge of transferable skills to encourage participants to find their passion and transition to new careers, with all their skills being the core ingredient. She showed the international talents how to personal-brand and the spellbinding magic of LinkedIn wizardry."

- Trine Drechsler, Københavns Erhvervshus


"Leslea was invaluable in helping me land my dream job in Denmark. After a long period of unemployment her advice and guidance not only revitalised my motivation but helped me land my dream job after only a few short months of working with her.
From her online workshops to 1 on 1 personalised sessions and in person workshops I cannot recommend Leslea enough. If you are struggling with how to tackle applying for jobs in the Danish job market asking for help from Leslea is the single best thing you can do. I strongly recommend any expat who has moved to Denmark to reach out to Leslea for help if you are looking for advice on the Danish job market."

– Andrew Bjorklund



"Leslea is the person you want to get if you are looking for a job, and your LinkedIn and CV need some updating and adapting towards the Danish job market. I loved her direct, practical style, and all her prompts were spot on. She is a basket of knowledge and very helpful. Having her as a consultant was one of the best things I invested in."

– Nora Sørensen



"Job hunting in Denmark is not easy for an international. I am glad to choose Leslea as my job consultant.
I had the pleasure of working with her on my profile writing and job searching advice.
I got a recruiter´s message right after she polished my profile.
What really impressed me most about Leslea is her effective approach with clearly defined objective.
It’s without hesitation that I recommend Leslea."

– Junping Zhang


"I came across Leslea through an insightful article she had written in the Copenhagen Post about challenges of the Danish employment market for internationals. As a result, I engaged Leslea as a job consultant through English Job Denmark and I strongly recommend that non-Danes looking for work do the same."

– Matthew Thompson



"I have seldom gotten as much out of individual sessions as with Leslea. Her professional insight is pragmatic and extremely useful. She analytically pinpoints the essence and communicates in a concise and pleasant manner with concrete examples. She exceeded my expectations and I warmly recommend her to anyone looking to excel in their career."

– Marie Blønd



"I attended "Tips & tricks for Job Seekers Workshop" and to be honest, I was unsure if an event designed mainly for foreign job seekers would benefit me, as I have been on the Danish job market for almost 5 years now and I think I know it. My notebook clearly shows a different story. In fact, my approach to job seeking is very different now. It is very time consuming to search for a job and therefore important that you use your time wisely. Leslea had a very pragmatic and fresh take on job seeking and I am very happy I got a chance to attend."

– Johan Rindmar


"Leslea has been a great support over the last few years. Finding a job here in Copenhagen wasn't easy, but I'm there now and it feels great! I had phone calls and attended online events, these, plus the regular optimistic posts were very reassuring. So, thank you for all your help."

– Anna Douglas


"Leslea is a charming and witty speaker. Her talk about job search in Denmark is worth listening to, it is filled with great observations about the cultural differences in life/work life. She brings great advice about the application format, content, and the whole process. She surely gives very valuable tips on living and working in Denmark whilst presenting everything in a very entertaining way."

– Henriette Schøn
