Weekly update – Week 5/2019

Another week is at its end and we are doing a small update on the things that have been going on at NJW. Last week we dusted off our shoes from all the snow in Oslo and flew to the wonderful Barcelona for a kick-off trip with the whole crew! We wanted to gather all employees together, the old, the new and the girls from our sister brand Multilingual Jobs Worldwide working from Barcelona. We were there for 4 days from Wednesday to Saturday, and boy did we have fun! Don’t get me wrong, we did work, but hey, it is quite nice to work in a new location, at a beautiful office space and with the best colleagues a person can have. Here you get to have a little sneak peek to our offices in BCN, what do you think?

In addition to getting to know each other and managing our daily work, we did meet a couple of partners while we were down there. It is always very beneficial and inspiring to meet up with partners. We have great discussions, we share ideas, we communicate and in the end we are left with a closer relationship and a better understanding between us. We want to serve our partners in the best way possible and in that, communication is key!

After all the work was done and finished, we deserved some sightseeing, tapas and good laughs together with the colleagues. We split into different groups depending on who wanted to do what and what we wanted to see. We conquered for example the hill of Parc Güell, explored the shopping streets around La Rambla, some of us went to the aquarium and some enjoyed the elaborate architectural detail of the Basilica of Sagrada Familia. As a first time visitor, I would give Barcelona a 10 out of 10 grade. Some places just make you fall in love with them from the first moment and I can say, Barcelona has that something! It is a city with life on its streets day and night, there’s great shopping opportunities, delicious restaurants, an amazing climate and night-life, not to mention the sandy beach. What more do you need?

It was a great kick-off trip and a good way to build a better relationship between the colleagues in both offices, with partners and to lift the spirit for the upcoming weeks. This week we have been back in Oslo, enjoying a wintery weather and concentrating on what we do best, working with recruitment. We have again helped 15 people get their new chance abroad! We can see that a lot of Nordics have decided to take up a new challenge and apply for jobs in various locations and we are of course happy to see all your CV’s in our system. If you have been thinking about whether you could do it, just contact one of our colleagues and you will be supported from the beginning to the end. Maybe in a few weeks you will be on the list of people we helped get a job in their dream location! 😉

Now, we wish you a very relaxing weekend!
