The NAV website will provide you with useful information about finding work and welfare benefits.

Another useful resource to check out would be UDI (Norwegian Directorate of Immigration), which deals with residence and work permit issues.

    Hi. My name is Louise and I am from and live in Ireland but want to work in Norway next summer. What do I have to do to work in Norway only for approximately 3 months?

    If you haven’t already got a summer job, you are advised to start looking already in January.

    Best of luck and I hope you will enjoy Norway.
