Our workplace is characterised by diversity, a high degree of professionalism and an international environment. The tasks are varied and cover issues from political case consideration, over ship surveys to the drafting of rules and regulations.

Our main task is to retain and develop Denmark as Europe's leading maritime nation. We strive to achieve this in cooperation with maritime companies, educational institutions and other authorities. Here you will meet a good and informal tone and be working in a strong professional environment.

Our main offices are located on Caspar Brands Plads 9 in Korsør, but we have offices in several places throughout the country.

A part of the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs

The Danish Maritime Authority is a part of the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs. This common framework benefits cooperation, provides flexibility and makes it possible to move around among several government agencies during one's career. There are frequently joint events so that the colleagues can get to know each other across the agencies. In the same manner, we have internally in the Danish Maritime Authority our own cycling team and the wine club "Club Vin Maritime", just as we frequently have employee events.
