The database Loenoverblik.dk has aggregrated numbers for jobs, job functions and salaries in the Danish public sector.

Some key staff categories at the University of Copenhagen:

It is run by the Danish Agency for Public Finance and Management – a part of the Ministry of Finance – and includes data on public-funded universities like the University of Copenhagen.

You can compare job functions and salaries across institutions, faculties and fields.

Salary negotiations for all staff at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) take place every year. Here managers, staff that bargain their own salary, and staff representatives, negotiate and allocate the different categories of salary allowances – like qualification, function or staff retention – to staff.

The University of Copenhagen has an official wage transparency policy, and so we can here provide a comprehensive, aggregated overview of the total average monthly wage to all employee groups including pensions.

The number of employees in each position is expressed in full-time equivalents (FTE). One full-time equivalent corresponds to a full-time job. Two part-time employees could, for example, correspond to one FTE.

Salary: Total wage including pension, excluding inconvenience allowance for both staff under collective (union) agreements and under a civil servant agreement.

Employees in ‘flexible job’ and similar employment schemes are not included.

 

Categories of employees with fewer than three full-time equivalents are not included, so the list is not exhaustive. However, the rector’s and other management members’ salary are included, as we have requested and received the numbers directly from UCPH via a Freedom of Information request.
