Jobzone aims to be the preferred advisor and collaborating partner for all your recruitment needs. We are organised as a franchise model whereby local branches are locally owned. Jobzone"s consultants are either owners or partners. This model creates a sense of ownership with regard to results and generates additional motivation to ensure that clients and temps are satisfied. Jobzone is here to make recruitment easy and hassle-free for its clients.

With more than 40 offices in Norway you"ll never be far from your nearest Jobzone office. All our local branches have strong, visible links with the local community. Jobzone"s consultants are very familiar with the local business sector and labour market. Our good knowledge of temps and clients means that we can make quick decisions and identify optimal solutions for your company. Feel free to contact your nearest Jobzone office for an informal chat.

Jobzone´s vision is to be "the best employer". The vision implies that Jobzone should work closely with both temps and clients and always be available when they need us. Each client and temp will be assigned their own personal contact person who is very familiar with their needs, requirements and wishes. As the "best employer" Jobzone shall offer good social and professional activities to its employees. This will help create a secure framework and sense of belonging for our temps. Jobzone works on the premise that the recruitment companies that are most attractive to job seekers and temps will also be preferred by clients.
