What is a staffing agency?

Manpower is Norway's largest staffing agency. A staffing agency hires out employees to companies that need extra labor for a shorter or longer period. This means that employees who are hired out are employed by Manpower, but work for our clients.

You are guaranteed the same salary with us as you would have received if you had worked directly with the client. You get access to our employee portal; MyManpower. Here you get the information you need for your employment relationship and here you register your working hours.


Tips when applying for a job

There is a lot to consider and a lot at stake on the day you apply for a job. How do you best prepare? Here we have gathered some basic advice that can be helpful. Further down the page you will see links to relevant articles.


  1.  It is always useful to read job advertisements. They can make you aware of what qualities and skills the companies are looking for - and which you can develop to make you qualified
  2. It is always useful to have a network, because not all jobs are advertised. Friends, family, neighbors, and former colleageus can give you tips and recommendations. And it is precisely through temporary assignments in Manpower that you can get a good network. 
  3. Get in direct contact with the companies you are motivated to work for. Such initiatives are most often perceived positively. That way, you can get to know your company's need now and in the future. 
  4. Be aware of the choice of jobs you are applying for. Not everyone is meant for you. It is then better to spend time in temporary positions that give you valuable work experience.
