I'm planning to move to Oslo next year, but I'm having a little trouble estimating what I would get paid as an Art Director at an advertising agency? I'm finding it hard to look at jobs as it seems they don't really use that title there. 

Could anyone tell me a little about the creative industry in Oslo, including freelancing? Also, is there a specific recruiter to use for the creative industry? 

Hope you can help!

Do you speak and write Norwegian? If not it will realistically be difficult to land an AD job unless you have a stellar background from international industry. There is a lot of local talent in this industry who often get the available jobs based on who you know from education etc.

Salaries are quite good in Norway in an European perspective, but cost of living is equally high.
