Default MOVING TO DENMARK WITH NO JOB, HELP!

hi all,
Im planning on moving to Denmark with my girlfriend who is Danish. We have an apartment already there just outside Copenhagen. The only problem is I need a job. I don't have any professional qualifications and cant speak fluent Danish although she is teaching me. Could anyone give me any tips as to how to get a job, ANY job for now just to get the money in.
Its been suggested that its quite easy to get a job in a café/bar/restaurant in Copenhagen if you don't speak Danish. Can anyone confirm this?
Please, any advice would be very helpful for my big move.
Thanks

Same here,

I would also love to move to Denmark with almost no skills in hand

I have a friend there who is willing to offer accommodation for as long as I do not find a suitable job. Is it easy to find unskilled jobs in Copenhagen when you actually can't speak Danish language? I would be willing to do any sort of work as i am in short of money these days

PS: I am a UK citizen

Why do you want to move to Scandinavia?, the cost of living there is very high, and you chances of earning a good wage would be very slight, especially as you don't speak the language. If you need to earn money quickly, and are already in the UK, then surely that is the best place to do it.
