Fading Borders

We connect therefore we are

Our Mission

Network for Work brings together trailing spouses with a professional background, representatives of open-minded organizations, other expats, and locals to facilitate full use of unused potential and resources through the power of networking. We help trailing spouses find ways back to the job market while supplying organizations with talent and potential.

We aspire to create a friendly and inspiring environment for people who found their new home in Norway through their spouses’ work and offer them ways to acquire skills and knowledge needed for succeeding in their new home country, as well as help them recreate a network of connections they left behind when they moved.


Our values

Honesty  Trust  inclusion
Authenticity  Justice

We build our organization on values we envision as universal in the future world we strive to create. We value honesty and authenticity because only by being honest and authentic to yourself you can unlock the full potential in you.


Trust is essential for any human interaction and a cornerstone of any organizational activity.

We are accountable for the results we deliver to both our members and our business partners, and we expect the same in return – only those who take ownership of their actions can fully realize their potential. The ultimate goal of all our effort is a world where a person’s background doesn’t matter, a world more just and fair.


Our vision

We remove the borders to realize the limitless potential in you.

We are each other’s resources.
