Relocating from one part of the country to another can often mean a leap into the unknown. Professionally, you may have an idea of who the main firms are in a particular region, but there may be other, equally interesting options which you hadn’t initially considered which we could perhaps put in front of you to consider. There will also be practical considerations such as where the better areas to live are and this might be influenced by, for instance, where the better schools are, if you have children. These are issues which we can assist with either directly ourselves or indirectly by putting you in touch with people who can provide you with the right information.
Reasons for relocating might include one of the following, such as:
- Looking to move back to where you grew up and be closer to friends and family
- Looking to move back to where your wife/ partner grew up to be closer to their friends and family
- Relocating to be with a long term partner
- Moving back to where you went to college/university
- You may be living in London but have a strong interest in outdoor pursuits and feel that a move to the regions will allow you to indulge this passion more readily
- You may be living in London but planning a family or already have a young family and feel that you and they will enjoy a better quality of life in the regions
- You may be living in London but looking to reduce the time spent commuting each day which you feel might be achieved by a move to the regions
- There may be limited career options within commuting range of your current home and believe your career will be better served by relocation in order to widen the choice of potential options
Whether you are looking to move back onshore or move offshore; moving into or out of London; or, indeed, from one region of the UK to another, we can provide assistance and advice to help make this move a successful one.
Our aim is to provide you with the right information so that you can undertake this move based on informed decisions. We would also aim to secure interviews for you across a range of firms (perhaps large or small, niche or generalist) so that you can have some choice about the size and type of firm which you join. We find that candidates often have an approximate idea of the type of firm/ career opportunity they would like to secure. However, it is only when they start to attend various interviews that the sort of firm they would like to join and the type of opportunity they would like to undertake starts to crystallise in their mind. We often find that when a candidate attends a series of interviews, they find that some of those firms present options which they hadn’t previously considered. Alternatively, the role might be presented from a slightly different angle or possibilities of approach are suggested which make the role potentially more interesting than otherwise might have been thought.
