An International Career in Denmark

MEET ANNE-LINA

Meet Anne-Lina, who joined BESTSELLER in the beginning of 2018 to work as a Print & Trend Designer at ONLY.

WHERE ARE YOU FROM, AND HOW DID YOU END UP AT BESTSELLER IN DENMARK?

I was born and raised in the United Kingdom, but I actually have a Scandinavian background with my mom being Swedish and my dad being Norwegian, so I have always thought that it could be fun to work in one of the Scandinavian countries.

To be honest, I didn’t really know much about BESTSELLER before I started working here. I knew most of the brands, but the first time I heard about BESTSELLER was when a recruiter from BESTSELLER reached out to me. I was open to relocating to a new country, and after a quick research, I realised that BESTSELLER’s headquarter is located in Denmark. I started applying for different positions at BESTSELLER’s offices in Europe. Within a week, I had my first phone interview which was followed by a Skype interview before I flew over for the final interview.

WHAT DO YOU DO IN BESTSELLER?

I work as a Print & Trend Designer at ONLY’s Trend & Expression department. I do a lot of research and keep an eye out for future trends that would suit ONLY. I always keep an eye out for inspiration when I am out shopping, looking through trend books or travelling so I can give our designers directions about future trends.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE THE BEST ABOUT WORKING IN BESTSELLER?

One of the things I like the most about working at BESTSELLER is that I get to meet so many different people. I really enjoy getting to know my colleagues and everyone is very friendly.

It might be a bit difficult to learn the Danish language, but all my colleagues have been very supportive. In the beginning, we would agree to speak Danish until lunch so I could practice my skills. Luckily for me, it was a bit easier for me to understand and learn Danish because of my Scandinavian roots.

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO LIVE IN DENMARK?

At first, I lived in Brande and it was quite an adjustment for me as it is a lot quieter compared to crazy London. After about six months, I relocated to the city Vejle which is around 50 minutes away from Brande by train.

The first thing I noticed after moving to Denmark was that I got more time to do different activities in my free time. Luckily, I have learned the Danish way of “hygge” and enjoy spending time with friends, going out for dinner, a pub quiz or going to the cinema. During the weekend, I always try to plan small trips and definitely take advantage of the fact that I now live a bit closer to Sweden, where part of my family is from.

If you’re thinking about relocating to Denmark, my advice would be to stay open-minded and not be afraid to ask questions. It can be a little hard to get to know Danes, but everyone is very friendly!
