Organising accommodation can be one of the biggest challenges when moving abroad for a new job.
Whether you are about to start a new assignment or are moving for a permanent role, issues with accommodation can cause unhappiness, unreliability and in turn damage your productivity.
This is why we offer to find short term accommodation for candidates when they arrive at their new destination. We have agreements in place with hotels and landlords at all of our projects and client sites around the world so we negotiate the best deals available.
We also support you in your search for long term accommodation, taking you to view properties and arranging cost effective leases with local landlords. We know that not every candidate requires the same type of accommodation. Whether you’re moving alone or with your family, we will establish your requirements and find an accommodation solution to match.
Our client’s challenge
The client was seeking the support of a company with proven experience of looking after contractors in the country and dealing with local partners to offer all necessary services.
We took on a two year lease for a block of apartments on behalf of our client. Using our mobilization and repatriation solution, we shipped many of the candidates’ personal belongings including furniture, luggage, and in one instance, a pet dog to their new home. Additionally we also hired security and maintenance personnel as well as a maid to service the accommodation. We also provided full furnishing, internet access and home comforts such as satellite television and phone lines.
Our client was safe in the knowledge that the contractors had the practical support to get themselves set up in country and be able to go to work in their new location in no time at all.
