The website Working at UiA is aimed at making it easier for international staff to find information about Norwegian conditions and to ease the transition into working and living in Norway.
This article is more than one years old, and may contain outdated information.
What is important to consider before going to Norway to work for UiA, and what do you need to do after arrival? These are two of the main features at the new website that is now being launched under uia.no.
– The website will promote UiA as an attractive work place, and thus attracting international competence. We will update the site continuously with all the practical information tied to the process, both before and after arrival, says advisor at the HR department Malin Stine Hauge, who has led the work with the website.
At the website you will find information about laws and rules, the hiring process, visa and permits, and how to find housing. Once one has arrived one needs a residence permit, change, a Norwegian mobile subscription, understating of salary and tax conditions, and a language course.
– As a new resident in Norway, you will have many questions. Hopefully, our website will answer many of them. Working at UiA will make it easier for international employees to start working for us. We hope that the site will be an excellent work tool for us who welcome new employees, says Tonje Sti, advisor at the faculty of technology and science.
The website also gives insight into what it is like living in Norway and in the university cities, Grimstad and Kristiansand. International employees can read about what to expect in terms of economics and work, culture and leisure time, and health and wellness. There is also a list of vacancies at UiA at the site.
The site has been created through a cooperation between the HR department, HR coordinators at the different faculties, and the strategy project Global mindset (GM).
– There was a workshop with several international employees this spring.
They gave us many inputs with useful information, says project leader for GM2, Nora Clarke.
Working at UiA will be a vivid website that is constantly renewed and updated.
– The site has been launched now, and we hope for feedback and for people to notify us if there is something that is unclear or incorrect, says Clarke.
