Are you passionate about design? Can you develop networks and partnerships? And are you a whiz at raising funds? Now is your chance to help ensure that Design denmark, as the design industry’s organization, stands strong.

At Design denmark, you will have a versatile workday, with great freedom to take charge of your agenda as long as it brings us closer to our goal of more members, a strong community and more partnerships.

We see ourselves as a unifying force in the industry and are looking for someone who, like us, is passionate about showing that design makes a difference. Do you have strong written and spoken communication skills? Are you proactive and want to be part of creating change? Then read on.

Your formal title will be Network and Project Developer, and you will be part of our secretariat and play an essential role in the operation, activities and especially the association’s development.

This is a versatile position where your primary tasks will include:

– establishing and maintaining new member networks
– member recruitment and community building

We offer:

– a flexible workplace where you have the freedom to shape your working day
– an informal working environment with high ceilings
– room for creativity and innovation
– A part-time position of approx thirty hours per week – by agreement.

We are a membership association, meaning we are not a salary leader. However, we are open to different remuneration models and ways of putting the position together.
