NAV’s main job is to help jobseekers find a job as quickly as possible. NAV facilitates active job hunting and provides personal follow-up and guidance. NAV also works to help jobseekers gain qualifications.

NAV possesses wide-ranging knowledge about the labour market in Norway. NAV works closely with employers, the authorities and organisations to prevent unemployment.


One of NAV’s most important tasks is to help jobseekers find work by acting as an intermediary. This means it provides jobseekers with information about specific jobs. You can find advertisements for vacant jobs on NAV’s website.
