Through a Needs Assessment (via Skype / FaceTime) our consultants help expat partners to discover what their options are in finding a fulfilling occupation at their host location, taking their personal circumstances into consideration. Our consultants act as a sounding board, encouraging the expat partners to think out of the box, and to look at ‘the big picture’ in order to include opportunities they may not yet have thought of. If the Needs Assessment reveals that further support is beneficial, the consultant will define a cost-effective, tailor-made support package for the expat partner.

For a number of our clients, our trained and experienced consultants also execute case & process management of our client’s partner support programme and remain the point of entry for the expat partner throughout their entire time abroad.
