Did you know that 48% of Norwegian adults volunteer annually? Whether you are new to Norway or have been here for a while, one of the best ways to integrate into the Norwegian society is through volunteering.

Norway International Network's team and board consist of motivated locals and expats.



What NIN can offer:

  • A dynamic team
    You'll experience a sense of belonging to a great community with our team and members. It's a perfect opportunity to grow your professional network and make friends during our social, cultural, and speaker events.

  • Valuable experience
    You'll leave your potential employer with the impression that you are actively engaged in community work - a part of the Norwegian dugnad spirit.

  • A reference
    Reference check for a potential candidate is thorough in Norway. If you don't have any work experience in this country, joining NIN is a good start because if you do a good job, we'll be glad to let people know about it.

If you share our mission to help foreigners integrate in Norway and can commit to the position for at least six months, please send your CV and this questionnaire to contactninside@gmail.com and tell us which position you are interested in.

Join us for our March monthly meeting!

Ian Jenkins, originally from the U.S., landed 63 job rejections and not a single interview in the first 8 months of living in Norway. Without speaking Norwegian fluently, with no network, and in the middle of a recession, he had an 'a-ha' moment that changed his career and life forever. During his presentation, he'll share with you the 3 secrets to how he gets great jobs without a resume, salesy networking or even applying for a job. If you're in need of a breakthrough in your job hunt, you'll want to attend his workshop!
