Benefits and career development

Nofima wants to strengthen our position as a leading research environment. We therefore encourage and facilitate learning and personal development among our employees.

Because we work in research and development of new knowledge, we wish to ensure through continual learning and competence enhancement that our employees have the necessary knowledge to create good solutions for our clients.

Through our new further educational platform “the learning arena”, we make provisions for the necessary development of expertise in line with the individual’s needs and career opportunities.

Secondment training contributes towards increased learning and understanding, as well as exchange of experiences and networking.

Nofima allows its employees to take secondment training with appropriate partners. These may be partners in the business community to better understand their needs and daily routines, or in other university and research institutions. You can take secondment training in the same city where you normally work, or on the far side of the Earth. You get three to six months with full pay, and can gain valuable perspectives and experience, both for yourself and for Nofima.

All employees at Nofima have health insurance, and are therefore eligible for swifter help when they need it, in addition to good follow-up along the way throughout varying periods of illness. In addition, Nofima has good life insurance, occupational insurance and expanded occupational injury insurance.

Nofima has a good and “hybrid” pension plan, and wishes to find good and individual solutions for their employees. The employees are mainly enrolled in the occupational pension scheme pursuant to the new Norwegian Occupational Pension Act (TPL).  A few employees are still members of the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund (closed scheme). Management-level employees must participate in the company’s general pension scheme, and the terms and conditions are to be in line with other company employees. The general age limit is 70 years.
