adventure is safe
in our hands.
Women Living Abroad is a boutique consultancy that is guiding organizations and international employees during the relocation process. We are focusing on helping organizations who are addressing these challenges and are thinking in opportunities.
Our passion project grew out of an in-depth understanding of what it means to relocate to a different country.
Living abroad is a lifetime experience and will become part of your identity. It has a huge impact on the lives of your employees or co-workers and is highly underestimated.
Own experience: Crafting careers in a new context
Recruitment is often approached by companies or recruitment agencies as a one-off rather than a trajectory that seeks to create a long term, successful placement. From our own experience we can tell it’s vital to offer support throughout the entire relocation process. We show you all the steps in the process and guide you through it.
We believe that people will work worldwide eventually. We support companies to make global mobility more successful in the future. We work with companies that are looking for the right people for the right jobs and are willing to recruit beyond borders.
Good to know:
We support recruitment, HR-department and professional women directly.
We are involved in both ends of the process for an ongoing dialogue.
We make sure the whole working abroad experience adds value.
to invest in your people:
Recruit beyond borders
Companies are looking for the right people for the right jobs and are willing to recruit beyond borders. Demographic shifts are still a key factor for the future of work. Research reveales that organisations see their talent strategy as an increasingly important component in a globally mobile workforce.
We take care of your people. There is scant attention for the wellbeing of the family unit as a whole during the relocation process, a key factor in a successful, long term placement.We are the ongoing dialogue during the secondment.
Only 18% of the spouses received employer-provided career assistance. (Cole, N.D. 2011) We have this covered for you.
Gender and diversity statistics show that female employees are usually under-represented in the global mobility community.
Women's family situation should be an essential part of the selection process and is often neglected by employers, recruiters or expat agency's.
Ensuring the male trailing spouse approves the relocation and is likely to adapt to their new environment is a way to avoid failure and repatriation, an issue that is quite prevalent. So far many industries didn't succeed in attracting and retaining women and their spouse.
A lack of female role models is a reason for declining an assignment. We want to help creating more role models.
