Welcome to AvantGarde Search and welcome to our new website

Welcome to AvantGarde Search and welcome to our new website. You may know us better as OG-S AS, but we have now, finally, taken the step to change the company name. We would like to say a big thank you to the several hundreds of Senior Managers, HR Representatives, Employer Branding Experts and Marketing Professionals who have given us their input in relation to the New name. Your input has ensured we are 100% confident that we have selected a name that best represents us and what we do.

When working on our new website we all agreed that it needed to be “short and sweet”. By that we mean; less is more. As you will see, we have therefore focused on the key elements of our recruitment services and on those areas which make us different to most of our competitors. It is these key areas that ensure our clients secure the absolute best candidates in this competitive

For all the partners in AvantGarde Search, the name itself describes us very well indeed. We believe that the Recruitment Industry in Norway desperately needs disruption and modernization. Gone are the days in which it is all about the Headhunter and long winded processes. As we say; it is all about the client, the candidate and the agile processes we deliver.

AvantGarde Search can now proudly say that we are one of the few, if not the only, true specialists in terms of headhunting in Norway. We are convinced that it is better to focus on certain areas of recruitment as opposed to being a generalist. Our purpose is thus to tailor our recruitment services to the following:


Start-ups, small and medium sized business recruiting for specialists and /
or management professionals.

During the last few years we have had the opportunity to work on some exciting recruitment projects. We are very humbled to have had the opportunity to work with some highly exciting and forward-thinking companies including: Miros Technologies,
Cognite, Ocean Sun, Sonitor, Xait, Electromagnetic GeoServices, Magseis, VisionIO, Effera, iSURVEY, BriNorhull, C6 Technologies, Integrate Renewables,  Visuray and more.  This has included positions a C-SUIT level, Directors and Vice Presidents, Sales Management and BDM. Additionally, we have secured the best specialist candidates within areas such as Software Development, Data Science, Project Management, Engineering, L&D, Visual Design and more.

Our aim for 2019 is to carry on delivering the best talent to all our clients here in Norway and at the same time ensuring our clients strengthen their Employer Brand by using our services. We are using more and more mobile applications to source the best talent and through our knowledge of Social Media we ensure that our adverts are seen by thousands of passive and active candidates.

Now we are looking forward to taking a bigger market share, at our offices in Oslo, Stavanger and Kristiansand. AvantGarde Search should be the go to headhunter for all start-ups, small and medium sized companies looking for the best management talent and specialists.

We would like to once again thank you all for your support so far and hope you would like to follow us on our SoMe channels:

Finally, we would like to say a big thank you to Grete Guttormsen and Jarle Hetland Bjørlin for their work on our website and logo. You have done a fantastic job and we couldn’t have done this without yo.

So, if you are a small or medium sized company or perhaps a start-up and are looking to recruit within the next 12 months, please feel free to get in touch to set up a meeting. We would love the opportunity to learn more about you and your future plans, and one thing we can promise; We will deliver the best management and specialised talent to your company.
