Spouse Space is an initiative oriented towards expats’ spouses and/or accompanying families.

Spouse Space is characterized by its monthly meetings, where the participants are asked to help decide the topics of the meetings. The meetings are organized in to halves; where the first half focuses on specific topics like job, networking, volunteer work, entrepreneurship etc., and the other half has a social and networking purpose. The secretariat of IHNDs goal is to:

  • Create relationships between spouses and partners
  • Help with job search
  • Help spouses integrate in North Denmark
  • Introduce spouses to networking opportunities and help each other with their daily challenges

Additionally, the participants are introduced to the many organizations and volunteer opportunities in the region.

The IHND Secretariat cooperates with other partners – e.g. Workindenmark and Job Center, to offer spouses a number of jobs searching courses and CV enhancement techniques. IHND Secretariat has an executive role in the program by arranging networking meetings etc.

We can give you tips for CV and job search via a one-on-one session

Make an appointment if you need some tips for your CV

At a one-on-one meeting you can get your CV looked through and get tips on how to search for a job in Denmark. We will advise you on which North Danish companies could be relevant for you to look closer at as well as have a talk about your competences and how to translate them to a Danish setting.

'How is that even possible you found a job without even having a college degree?' was the comment I received from assigned to me manager.

I think I am a very lucky person because I came across with International House and got acquainted with tons of like-minded young people through their events. During the past year everyone whom I met inspired me, believed in me with their whole heart.

I'm very grateful to Spouse Space for creating a very friendly and supportive environment, that helped me to focus on finding a job, develop my Linked profile / CV, learn how to write application letters and as a result, find my dream job.

I wish that more people in Aalborg should know about Internation House North Demark and how it changes a person's life for better. Keep dreaming about your ideal job in Denmark and it comes!

We have moved to Aalborg because my husband received his dream job. To be totally honest I had a very hard time accepting that we should leave our beloved home and family and or expat life had a very difficult start.
Spouse Space was among the first ones I have found and contacted for help, information, suggestions. Rikke was so supportive from the first moment! When it came to my job seeking, she made me feel hopeful, despite that literally everybody told me I will not find a suitable job without Danish knowledge - even at Jobcentret. I have found one in two weeks (I was lucky too, I know).
Being surrounded by supportive and caring people is maybe among the most important things at the moment of starting a new life abroad. So new expats, please count on Spouce Space.

Are you or your company interested in meeting, employing or hosting an internship for one of our accompanying spouses?

The international spouses we work with are ready to take on new challenges together with companies in North Denmark. Many accompanying spouses have special language skills that might be beneficial to your company as well as many years of experience within their field from their home country. They are highly motivated to find employment and willing to learn Danish.

If you or your company is lacking qualified workers, please contact us for more information.

We would also love to do a collaboration on company visits.
