The job market
Over the years our municipalities have worked hard to fulfill several development goals of our region, and the strive to reach new heights is still top priority. Combined with a strong collaboration based on trust, competence and a common belief in an exciting future between the private and public sector we see a region with a strong future growth potential.
"During the time I lived in Oslo, I was of the opinion that there were few career opportunities in the Kongsvinger region. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised when I moved "home" a few years ago. Here there is a large selection of exciting jobs and it is fun to work on projects that contribute to regional growth and development."
Marthe Ødegaard, general manager, Øvre Søndre

In order to follow the developments, the industrial companies and the business community in general, will need a qualified workforce with higher education and professional competancies in many different functions and subject areas. In the same way, the region needs highly qualified employees in the public sector, especially in health-related professions, teaching and specialized positions in technical professions as well as other fields.
