- Short Term Housing
Your assignees’ comfort is vital in setting them up for their role. We can organise prompt, fully-furnished, secure and cost-effective housing for your assignees to ensure they have the housing they need to hit the ground running in their new role.
- Home Search
We have a dedicated real estate division that takes budget, location and lifestyle into consideration to give your assignees the perfect housing during their contract. Our national relocation consultant coverage enables us to guide the assignee through the entire process: needs analysis, shortlisting properties, booking viewings, and managing leases to achieve an outcome that is efficient and stress-free.
- School Search
Relocating can be difficult for assignees with children. Our school search service provides information about school choices, appointments to view schools, and our consultants can even attend enrolment meetings with school principals and administration staff. We ensure that each assignee has peace of mind that their children will receive the best possible education.
- Settling-in Service
The efficacy of a relocation is directly tied to how well an assignee settles in to their new home. Our program will help your assignees to integrate with their new community and connect with important services.

Adapting to a new culture is a difficult but vital part of a successful relocation. Our cultural briefing service supplies a comprehensive overview of the new culture, helping assignees and their families bridge the cultural gap more quickly, consequently making them feel at home in their new workplace.

As experts in corporate relocation, we know how to create efficiencies within your relocation plan. Kent can replace your costly or less efficient in-house payment models for our streamlined, tailored, accurate, timely, cost-saving solution. This will improve your efficiencies and deliver a solid improvement to your bottom line.
