Additionally, you will have access to a wider pool of mentors through which you can develop cross disciplinary knowledge to expand your employability within the Norwegian job market.

We understand the value of having a professional network when seeking employment, and this is a fantastic opportunity to expand yours! Through this program we strive to connect you with other professionals both within and outside your sector to increase your employment opportunities.

Share your skills and knowledge and make a positive impact in the life of an immigrant in Norway

Based on successful examples, mentoring has proven to be an integral strategy in assisting skilled immigrants to find suitable employment and professional networks. Diversify is introducing an innovative approach to mentoring, as we will match our mentees with a primary mentor as well as a wider pool of mentors who will provide additional multi-disciplinary knowledge, experience and network. Each mentor will provide critical information about their professional experience, a connection to people within their professional networks, and input in how the mentee might leverage their skills or apply for a job in Norway, so as to enhance the mentee’s knowledge of the Norwegian workplace culture and norms. 

As a mentor at our Nexus Mentorship program, you will have a chance to develop your leadership skills alongside other professionals from a variety of fields in Norway. Throughout the program, the mentors will receive guidance and supervision, while also having access to our wide network of experts and like-minded people from all around the globe, living in Norway. Moreover, as a mentor, the interaction with a mentee from the same or similar field of expertise will be enriching for both, as you will exchange thoughts, experiences and viewpoints on similar topics from different angles.

We are searching for professionals with both immigrant and/or Norwegian backgrounds coming from all kinds of work fields in Norway, who are passionate about sharing their job-searching and work-related experience, inspire, motivate and lift up others to fulfill their aspirations of working within their fields of expertise in Norway.
Together, we can foster diversity and inclusion within Norwegian workspaces, help people get their dream jobs, and fight `brain waste` in Norway.
