Hi there,
 
Thanks for getting in touch! 
 
How long are you planning to stay in Norway?
 
The unskilled labour market in Norway is a difficult proposition. There are many citizens of surrounding Scandinavian countries working in these jobs. While you may have previous experience in Nigeria, you may struggle with the language barrier. What kind of jobs have you done in Nigeria?
 
Being unable to communicate efficiently, you will not be able to apply for certain unskilled positions such as waitering, bartending and transport. However, Norway used to be famed for its agricultural sector. Seasonal occupations such as farm hands and fruit picking may be viable options.

There is a drastic shift in climate so you will need to be able to cope with the cold. You might also want to look into opportunities in the fishing, oil and gas industries. Proficiency in language may not be a necessity. In terms of visa applications, you should check out our visas for Norway page for more info. It could help to clear things up and provides you with a good starting point.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Regards,
Brett
