Thanks to Spousecare, I felt I had competent support right from the start of our move to DK. The combination of information about Danish culture & society, leisure activities and one-to-one support in finding a job in DK make Spousecare an excellent programme/service. I am very grateful to have been able to participate in the programme and to be part of the network.
Spousecare is the most professional, diligent and heartwarming service I have experienced so far, out of the three within the last few years over Europe. Thank you, especially Anette, for your excellent service, and your kindness, in a time of vulnerability.
I had a wonderful experience with Spousecare and getting settled in Copenhagen. The team went above and beyond and helped with all kinds of questions, from job hunting to giving birth in DK. They also adapted really well to “covid times” with their virtual workshops.
I highly recommend them!
Spousecare was like that friendly classmate who showed you around on your first day in school. I particularly appreciated their flexibility and tailored approach, allowing me to set the pace knowing that I can always fall back on them whenever I get stuck. I did have quite a few practical and often ignorant questions but both Anette and Sys answered all of them with patience and without judgement. It’s clear that they want to help and for me they certainly helped me get a foothold in Denmark. I’ll make sure to stay in touch!
My wife and I have relocated internationally 7 times, including twice to Denmark. Spousecare is the most valuable help we have ever received, by a large margin. The job search help was outstanding, and led directly to me finding work very quickly. I highly recommend Spousecare to anyone relocating to Denmark, and to any Danish organization hiring international talent.
Spousecare was instrumental in my relocation to Denmark! Thanks to Anette and her team I was able to understand the Danish labor market and through their guidance, connections and counseling received a wonderful job offer in 3 months from arrival. I couldn’t have done it without them.
I have also met some of our closest friends in Denmark through this network. Thank you Spousecare!
Anette was amazing from day one. She exudes pride for Denmark and reaafirmed all the positive things I read about it prior to our move, while still being sensitive to the challenges of living here. The services were tailored specifially for me and I am grateful to have the support of the network.
Anette and Spousecare are professionals and have been a great support in helping me settle well in Denmark. Regular meetings and the events helped me find a job of my choice within 6 months of arrival. Highly recommend Spousecare.
Spousecare is a great network to meet people, to have a nice time with others and make some group activities.
Spousecare was an excellent choice of support for me when moving to DK. Their services were tailor-made to my individual needs in succesfully finding a job in a hospital.
Thank you Anette and Spousecare!!!
I am glad SYBO games provided us with such a great, helpful program. I wish all companies can supply this service to all their newly foreign employees. Because it was great.
Thank a lot 🙂
Our company has been working with Spousecare through a network connection and in 2013 they helped us find a very skilled IT-supporter that already had residence in Denmark. We are very satisfied with the quality of the candidate who is still with us and doing a tremendous job.
We will not hesitate using Spousecare network in the future if we need to find new candidates.
This was the first time living in another country and my beginning in Denmark was very difficult. But my personal consultant Sys Vecht, and the Spousecare team did a lot of things to get me started here. Several months later, a lot of things are moving forward for me thanks to them!
Spousecare is a must for a good start in new country!
At IO-Interactive 1/3 of our employees comes from countries outside of Denmark. More than 25 different nationalities is represented at the company. Naturally it is of very high importance to us, that our new foreign colleagues and their families get well settled in Denmark. To ensure that process, we decided years ago, to work in close corporation with Spousecare. Spousecare takes good care of the spouses to our employees and their children. Spousecare helps with all kind of practical issues, such as schooling, insurances and job hunting, but apart from that, they also arrange different cultural and social events, which is very helpful in order for the spouses to establish a network. We have worked with Spousecare for some years now, and the course of that time, we have received a lot of positive feedback about the efforts Spousecare is doing.
Spousecare has become a natural and important part of the integration of our employees and their families to the Danish society.
Spousecare introduced me to some really wonderful expat friends, which is so helpful when you move to a new country!
As someone pregnant far away from home, Spousecare provided great support for me.
Efter fire år i udlandet, hvor jeg ikke havde arbejdet, og 15 år siden mit sidste job interview, var samarbejdet med Spousecare en meget stor hjælp.
Deres vejledning og støtte i min jobsøgningsproces har helt sikkert haft stor betydning for, at jeg fik et job, der passer til mine ønsker og behov.
The spousecare team provided a never ending stream of enthusiasm, ideas and support enabling me to embrace the challenges of creating a new life
in a new culture.
The programme, the newsletter and their counsellor, Sys Vecht, were excellent! The Spousecare Handbook has provided me with the perfect grounding
to settle in Denmark. It gave me a far greater grasp on how to get the best out of LinkedIn and Job Search’ the ways I learned will be invaluable to me.
Excellent programme and highly recommended!
I have been very happy with the Spousecare service and they were always available to help out with any issues that we had.
We could not have settled in Copenhagen as well as we have without Anette and her team.
The assistance provided by Spousecare was integral in helping me successfully find a job in my field within 2 months of their services. The staff all went the extra mile to ensure that my resume was updated for the Danish workforce and that I was well prepared for the interview process.
A special thanks to Bodil and Anette for everything.
Spousecare v. Anette Pilmark, har siden 1. marts 2009 været en stor hjælp i opbygningen af vores internationale netværk for udenlandske forskere og medfølgende ægtefæller/partnere. Vi har benyttet Spousecare til at arrangere events for vores udenlandske forskere og deres familier. Spousecare har været ansvarlig for oplæg og afholdelse af møder i vores spouse netværk, og desuden har Anette Pilmark afholdt invididuelle rådgivningssamtaler med de ægtefæller/partnere, der har haft behov for dette. Spousecares ydelser har været højt værdsat af vores udenlandske spouser, og vi kan varmt anbefale Spousecare til virksomheder og organisationer, der ansætter udenlandske vidensarbejdere, der medbringer familie.
Vi har virkelig værdsat den engagerende og personlige betjening, som Spousecare har givet vores udenlandske forskere og ægtefæller. Spousecare har virkelig gjort en stor forskel for vores medfølgende ægtefæller. Det har været positivt at mærke Spousecare’s engagement i vores medfølgende ægtefællers trivsel her i Danmark.
When you come to a foreign country you are excited but at the same time have doubts and insecurities about settling down with your family in a new country, new culture and new people. In my experience Spousecare has not only has been extremely professional but at the same time very warm and friendly support when you need to really get to know and settle well in Denmark. The Spousecare network is extensive which really helps to develop a social/professional
network of your own. Thank you!
Prior to moving to Denmark with my husband and two children in January 2010, I remember getting an email from Anette. She welcomed me and said she was looking forward to meeting me and introducing me to Danish culture. Somehow seeing that email made me feel like I was going to be “okay”. After all, I was moving away from everyone I knew so having someone to guide me along and take the time to help me through this transition made it all easier to face. Anette and Spousecare have been a true Godsend.
I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have made it this far without her.
I arrived in Copenhagen knowing only my partner, his family and a few people from my Danish class. I had no work lined up and was having a hard time looking for work especially as I had recently graduated and had little work experience. More challenging still was that I had no work experience working in Denmark.
Just as I was losing my motivation for job hunting, I met Anette at Børsen at a large Expat in Denmark conference. From the beginning, her professional approach, support and confidence in me made me feel confident and welcome to Copenhagen. Spousecare also introduced me to a large friendly international group of friends with whom I was able to share my problems and advice.
I reported to Anette with my progress frequently and she mailed or called me back to offer her support. Anette helped with my applications, distributed my CV with her personal recommendation to her many contacts, and gave me interview preparation tips, introduced the Danish rules regarding tax and other Danish systems.
Now I have landed myself in the perfect job in a European Company which I would have had trouble finding otherwise.
Spousecare has really opened up the real Copenhagen for me and I would keenly urge other spouses to have the same experience. So thank you Spousecare.
