Short term mobility and relocation packages


    Relocation packages designed to support your short-term international assignment policies

    Short-term mobility has been a key growth area within Global Mobility, with short-term assignments (STA) accounting for the highest percentage of assignment types used by international employers.

    What is the definition of a short-term assignment?

    A short-term assignment (STA) is typically defined as an employee international assignment of more than 30 days and up to 12 months.

    A short-term assignment does not normally include a change of residence and does not always include the relocating employee being accompanied by their partners or family. It may also be part of a group move project.
    They are popular because they enable employers to complete smaller specific projects, fill temporary skills gaps and are commonly used as developmental opportunities for staff as part of a company’s broader talent programme.

    We have developed a short-term relocation package to support this requirement.

    Expert relocation coordination and cost management

    We provide management of your short-term assignments through coordinating a range of services which provide a high level of support for your relocating employees, as well as managing costs.

    Rotational and group move projects

    If your relocating employee is working on a rotational assignment basis, then we can manage their experience so that they have the same Relocation Manager supporting them throughout.

    If your short-term assignments are part of a group project, we can provide a project management team and group move programme to support your relocating employees. This can include creating cost efficiencies by group booking accommodation together.

    Developmental assignments and graduate move options

    If your short-term assignments are part of a developmental programme or a graduate move scheme, we can consult with you to optimise the programmes and the packages to provide the most economical and highest level of support available.
