Our second week as AvantGarde Search is now complete and we are over the moon with all the positive feedback we are receiving, both in relation to our new name, website and the direction we have decided to take. This week has perhaps been even more hectic than the first week with a high number of companies contacting us after reading the Interview DN with partner Erik Falk Hansen in DN
So, what has happened in week 2?
This week we are pleased to inform you that we will assist the fantastic Computas AS with their growth in Stavanger and their focus on cloud, machine learning, big data and AI. We are now looking for a Software Developer to join their team of 4 developers and scientists at Hinna Park. This will be an amazing opportunity for those who thrive in an entrepreneurial type environment, but with the safety of a bigger company. The advertisement will be released next week, and our search campaign will commence on Monday.
In the media
Erik Falk Hansen is a participant in Dagens Næringsliv`s, new Monday initiative, the podcast called Mandagsmøtet “ a podcast about you and your job”. The premiere was last week, and it is a pleasure for AvantGarde Search to participate together with DN commentar Eva Grinde and Journalist Nora Rydnes. You can listen to the podcast here.
Avant Garde Search are pleased to try out a relatively new digital reference system which will make the reference process of candidates more efficient and secure higher quality in relation to candidate references. A separate article will be written about this next week.
More interest from tech-companies
Last week we met with 11 new tech-companies in Oslo and Stavanger as well as with private equity companies which have tech-companies in their portfolio. This enables us to learn more about the technologies of the future. We are in no doubt that these type of companies need agile recruitment processes to secure the best talent.
Out and about
All partners at AvantGarde Search see the importance of being “out and about” on a variety of happenings. Learning more and meeting new people is essential and part of our values. This week we attended a seminar for Content Marketing arranged by www.petro.no in Stavanger as well as being at Factory / Oslo Fintech Hub.
Webinar with Jobreg for those looking for a job

The Boss Puppy, Scampi
Scampi is continuing to enjoy the snow but she has a habit of burying her toys deep in the snow and then leaving them, something which is a problem for the owner 😊
