SAMMEN Advice on job-hunting

Most employers in Norway require a good command of Norwegian and are interested in hiring employees who have the potential to work long term. However, it may be possible to find part-time, mostly unskilled jobs, where Norwegian skills are not a prerequisite. You may wish to focus on the following types of opportunities:

  • Cafes/Bars/Restaurants, Hotels, Cleaning agencies
  • Production/Industry/Warehouses
  • Paper route/Advertisement distribution
  • Souvenir shops, Tour Guide
  • International companies with English as working language
