Town planner/urban designer (Oslo)

Just curious if anyone knows much about this field here. I studied in the UK and worked there for several years as an Urban Designer. Since the recession hit bad, I decided to move back to Norway and did some initial interviews. I have however not been able to secure any work in my related field as of yet, with most potential employers confused as to my previous work experience and education. The reason being, my job in Norway is carried out by architects.

Does anyone have any advice or possibly know any international architectural firms with a presence in Oslo? I have covered all the firms I have found addresses for over the past few months, re-done my cv countless of times, but getting fed up with this perceived conservative attitude from the architectural community in Oslo.

If anyone has any tips or works in the industry, I'd be very happy to begin a dialogue and hopefully get out of this rut.
