Why work in Oslo

City for talent

Oslo is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe, and a city for talent. The city region constantly seeks top quality, educated and experienced people from all over the world to come and work and live here.

Norway is an egalitarian society with flat hierarchies and power structures that do not keep management and employees estranged. Norwegians often work across hierarchies rather than imposing boundaries. The leadership style is informal, and is based on employee freedom with responsibility. Norway also has transparent business and governmental processes.

Good work-life balance

A good work-life balance is an integral part of our culture, and it is possible to have a two-career household with children – one does not have to be chosen over the other.

Oslo enables and supports personal growth not only through the work-life balance, but also through a vibrant cultural scene, ethnic diversity, and a unique proximity to nature. Total commuting time is one of the lowest among competitive world cities.

To work in Oslo means great responsibility at young age, flat hierarchies and high ambitions.
