The needs of tomorrow dictate the work we perform today

We are InterSearch Norway, a local Executive Search firm with a global reach.

“Our results are not coincidental”

InterSearch Norway is a leading Executive Search firm focusing on the recruitment of senior executives and specialists to Norwegian and international companies. Our strength lies in key focus areas where our senior consultants bring relevant, sector specific experience and expertise in the dialogue with clients and candidates alike. Our internal collaborative model, working together in a joint effort to maximise the quality of each assignment, bring added comfort and objectivity to the work we perform on behalf of our clients.

We are efficient and flexible, but never compromise on quality. Our strength and passion lie in the dialogue with people, and in seeing opportunities where there is untapped potential. In our focus on building honest and trustworthy relationships we create longevity in bringing our clients and candidates together, securing the ultimate match.

Shaping the future

With a world fuelled with disruption we bring more than 26 years of useful experience in preparing for tomorrow. We embrace the digital revolution and acknowledge how e.g. technology in leadership is no longer a concept that limits itself to the IT department, but sets the agenda for top level management and board rooms alike.

Staying relevant

The accelerating change of technology, combined with geopolitical volatility are challenges that leaders are facing on a daily basis, constantly re-questioning a company's strategic direction, performance and culture-shaping. As with the circumstances in which we operate InterSearch is also in a state of continuous development, sharing our knowledge about local and international trends, making sure you are prepared for what's coming around the next bend.

Making an impact

We make sure the most qualified candidate with the right type of motivation gets the job. At the same time, we are conscious of how some employers' lack of focus towards the promotion of a diverse and inclusive workforce can have a negative effect on our ability to attract the best candidates available. InterSearch is constantly working to uphold the highest standard in securing that each recruitment process is honest, fair and inclusive. Not only because it is the socially correct thing to do, but because it makes commercial sense.
