About Norway

In Norway, 99% of people are fluent in English so no knowledge of the Norwegian language is needed. Norway is one of the best countries in the world for their economy, government and way of life. With a flat tax rate and additional holiday pay of CIRCA 12% of your annual salary (on top of your salary) 5 weeks annual leave which can be taken consecutively and a very relaxing way of life. This opportunity literally could change your life. Why someone from the UK…? – Norwegians love the English work ethic (Within the Motor trade). The UK Motor Trade is renowned for graft, pressure, high targets and not the best pay for the responsibilities. Norway has a more laid back approach, less targets and a better home/work life balance.  Plus the English language is spoken worldwide.   So people from the UK settle in easier and along with their work ethic, provide the perfect solution to their skill shortage.
