Find a new job abroad

NAV’s vacancy database includes many foreign job listings. The easiest way to find these is to search for job listings in EU/EEA countries. Many of the job listings are in English. 

The European Job Mobility Portal is a great way to find jobs in other EU/EEA countries and Switzerland. You can also register your CV and make it available to foreign employers.

More tips and advice on working abroad are found here (text in Norwegian).

You may stay in another EU/EEA country for up to six months without having to apply for a residence permit. If you want to travel to an EU/EEA country to find work, it is important that you prepare well.
