It is possible to find jobs in Norway as an English speaker. Let us show you how.
Finding work in Norway is a real challenge as a newcomer to the country. Unlike in many countries, native English ability is no real advantage. That’s because Norwegians speak great English. You need other skills and experience to stand out and secure a position.
Many job vacancies are not openly advertised and so building up a professional network from day one is vitally important. This is difficult to do from abroad unless you are in a highly specialised field.
Professional jobs in Norway include many engineering and construction fields, along with ICT and many research fields. Part-time and seasonal work is also commonplace.
