AvantGarde In Brief
The recruitment industry in Norway desperately needs changes and modernization. Disruption perhaps some would call it. Not just in terms of technology but perhaps more so within both the humane and process aspects. AvantGarde aims to be the driver for change by providing agile recruitment services where focus is on the client and the candidate, not the recruiter. AvantGarde Search` vision is therefore to be the #1 recruitment specialist for technology companies looking to hire the best talent for technical positions, management positions and positions within sales, marketing and design. We are also on a mision to modernize recruitment processes and the way we think about recruiting – placing focus on sourcing and facilitation as opposed to selection and headhunting.
–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.
