From the SCI-team!

September is one of the busiest months during the year for The Stavanger Chamber of Commerce. Lots of meetings and seminars, and a lot of fun!

The evenings might get darker, but the labour market is getting brighter. Unemployment rates keep shrinking, and for those of you looking for employment, opportunities are improving. We had a good group attending our CV-registration course last week, and there will be other labour market-related activities the coming weeks. Check out our events HERE.

Monday September 9th we have nationwide local elections in Norway. This means that the seats for all mayors, and all local politicians are “up for grabs”. The outcome is obviously of importance also for Stavanger Chamber International. Stay tuned!

During the last months many new newcomers have arrived to the Stavanger region. Some for work, some as students, and some as spouses/family members. We will do our very best in order to help them feel welcome. We are sure those of you who have been here for a while, will do the same!

Best wishes from the SCI-team!

Inger Tone, Randi, Elianne and Frode.
