You should first of all read carefully the information on Looking for work in Norway 2024.

Кратък преглед на пазара на труда:

Population: 5 489 000 at the beginning of 2023

The unemployment rate is  low (1,9 % in January 2023) but it is expected to increase throughout the year. High price increase, especially because of increased prices of energy and food, inflation, increased policy rate and the war in Ukraine are all factors that contribute to the increase in unemployment.

But at the same time, the demand for workers is quite high, and in many sectors. The demand is particularly high for workers with vocational/professional education and training.

The demand is high in the healthcare sector; in crafts, engineering and technology; in ICT; in transport (goods and passengers)

The development towards green industry – with new battery factories, factories for carbon capture and production of offshore wind turbines – show also a high demand for workers.
