Q. Germany and Holland are not Nordic countries so why are they part of the Nordic Job board?
A. They are not. However, most employers who have a Nordic team will embed that team in the Northern Europe team. Therefore employers looking for Nordics usually need Dutch and German speakers.
Q. You say that there is a shortage of Nordic speakers in the UK – how many are there?
A. The shortage has been caused by three factors in the last 10 years. Firstly many more UK based International businesses support the Nordics from the UK and secondly, immigration from the Nordics has slowed since the Norwegian economy started its recent boom. Brexit is the latest factor and has further slowed immigration. So demand has increased whilst supply has decreased.

Q. What difference will Brexit make to the opportunities available?
A. We do not know yet. Our Brexit article is quite detailed and will be kept up to date. Indications are that salaries are rising as candidates become rarer.
Q. Who sees the advertising on the Nordic Job Board?
A. 10,000 + potential jobseekers that have chosen to “like” our FaceBook page + those that click through from our advertising or search engines.
Q. If I upload my CV, who can see it?
A. You and us (Nordic Staff Ltd). Employers can’t see it unless you apply for a job. We may contact you if we think you would be interested in a job that we need to fill.
