Home sweet happiness?

So, you are also looking for happiness? We hope that you will come visit us in Denmark and help us find all the keys to a real home of happiness. Keys we will share with the rest of the world – and hopefully make everyone in it (perhaps even you?) a little bit happier.

You can apply between 15th of April – 1st of July 2019.

IKEA Denmark A/S will choose an applicant in mid-July 2019. The applicant will be contacted directly, and will also be announced here on the site.

Who are you?

  • You are the curious kind, perhaps even born with a magnifying glass in your hand
  • You love to travel and meet new people and cultures
  • You are of legal age in the country where you are coming from and have at least 18 years of experience as a human being
  • You love being in front of a camera and in the spotlight
  • And you have always wanted to find the secret to happiness

We can offer

  • Your own temporary home in Copenhagen, ready to be filled with happiness
  • Two weeks of getting close and personal with the Danes in September*
  • Days filled with home visits, guided tours, talks and dinners and off course time on your own to explore
  • Free ‘köttbulla’ at the IKEA restaurant
  • We’ll pay you a token amount as a salary (ex. VAT) for your services*
  • As a good host, we’ll facilitate and cover your travel expenses*

NB. During your stay you will have to pay Danish taxes of your salary and prepare yourself for a couple of rainy days.
