Digit’allJobs moving Europe - 20 May 2021 (Participating: Online)

Where are the available workers?

From March 2020, there was an increase in the number of completely unemployed within several sectors, with the highest unemployment in three occupational groups. These are:

  • Tourism and transport
  • Retail
  • Service occupations and other work

At the end of April, the number of completely unemployed as a share of the workforce was highest in tourism and transport with 27.0 per cent of the workforce, and lowest in academic professions with 2.3 per cent of the workforce. The share of the completely unemployed as a percentage of the workforce was highest in the capital, Oslo.

Where are the available jobs?

Accessing vacancies 

In April, 21 000 new vacancies were registered at nav.no. This is 40 per cent fewer new adverts per working day than in the same month last year. Broken down into sectors, there were the most new adverts in health, nursing and care, and education.

If we look at the NAV’s own overview for which categories of position are most advertised on the NAV’s job portal in the period from March 2020, the following occupations are among the categories with the most advertised vacancies:

  • Nurse and specialized nurse
  • Healthcare professional
  • Nursing assistant
  • Carpenter
  • Electrician
  • Driver class 2

Where to find the jobs

The easiest way if you don’t speak Norwegian is to search for jobs on the EURES portal www.eures.europa.eu. Indeed, all the job vacancies published by NAV are listed on this portal. You can then use the search function in your own language and access the job vacancies. Check first the job vacancies “with EURES flag, as this is an indicator that the employer is also looking for European candidates.

You can also access job vacancies in English which are listed on the NAV website www.arbeidsplassen.no. Use “english” as key word search.

 

Short overview of the labour market:

 

The labour market in Norway is influenced by the extraordinary situation the world is in and unemployment figures are very different from what we would see in a normal situation. The unemployment figures have also varied greatly since March 2020, and the situation is still unstable. The unemployment rate in Norway for October was 6,6 % of the labour force, about 190 000 persons. 

Population: 5 374 807 in the second quarter of 2020.

70.1% of the Norwegian population is in the workforce (aged 15-74) as at 22 July 2020.
