The true specialist

We buy our sport equipment from a sports shop, our food from a supermarket and clothes from a clothes shop. Yet, why isn’t it the same when it comes to recruitment? AvantGarde aims to be the first specialist recruiter in Norway. A true specialist! We only recruit for management and specialist (Technical) positions and dedicate our time to small & medium sized companies. Additionally, our key focus is on technology, maritime, renewable energy, data science and the oil & gas sector. This enables us to deliver the best service and the best candidates.
