Hi, I'm a professional who has been presented with a possible opportunity to move to Denmark. I'm a non-EU citizen. I'm a naval architect; In my previous position (in the USA), I earned $76000 p.a.+ $10000 variable overtime pay. I've been very keen to dive into the offshore wind energy sector in Denmark, so this isn't really a move for the money, however, I do not want to undercut myself on the pay (+the higher taxes in Denmark), I'd like to know what would be a good salary of a professional in the Danish maritime sector. I have an MSc degree in my field (Naval Architecture) from the USA and 2 years of experience in the maritime sector in the USA. I really appreciate your time to advise me on this query of mine. Thanks, Ben

Hi Henship,

Its hard for me to say what your salary expectations should be but pay in Denmark is generally pretty good. I think you should have a look at the Cost of Living in Denmark page to work out what you would need to maintain your standard of living in Denmark.

Good luck
