International Community is an Aarhus-based networking community, where local internationals and Danes get to meet each other and develop personal and professional relationships. International Community offers a wide range of events, from informal networking, family, and cultural events to job seminars and informational meetings about tax, banking, healthcare, school system, etc.
International Community is a part of Erhverv Aarhus and works closely with local authorities, Aarhus University, and several of the biggest companies in the region. They do so, to improve the conditions for companies to attract, welcome, and retain international talent and their families.
International Community has a mission to strengthen the international profile of Aarhus. Both by supporting companies in their international recruitment and by supporting the recruited talents and their families. Through services like the Spouse Community, where spouses can form a social network after moving to Aarhus, International Community offers many services to help make Aarhus feel like home
International Community offers many relevant network events etc. for international citizens moving to the Aarhus area. The collaboration with Destination Aarhus is founded in our shared interest in making internationals feel welcome and home here in Aarhus.
“When branding Greater Aarhus as an IT career destination, it is a great addition to the place brand that we have initiatives like International Community and Spouse Community. It is not only the job opportunities that counts when you decide to move to another country, it is also everything that comes with it. These kinds of communities are therefore invaluable to make internationals feel at home and settle in Greater Aarhus and make it their new permanent home”
– Maria Thing Nielsen, Head of Secretariat, Destination AARhus
“It is our mission to make Greater Aarhus as attractive as possible to international employees and their families. The companies simply must be able to attract and retain the employees they need to compete. Therefore, cooperation between companies, authorities, and organizations with the same agenda is key when developing the area – and Destination Aarhus is, of course, a key player in this joint effort”
– Marc Perera Christensen, CEO, Erhverv Aarhus/International Community
