Ensure a successful relocation by supporting the career needs of your employee’s spouse or partner

Executive & Professional Search

Spouse/Partner Employment Support

As top candidates consider acceptance of a job offer in a new location, the impact on a spouse or partner’s career can be a deal maker or a deal breaker. Spouse or partner dissatisfaction due to relocation can negatively impact the candidate’s future with the company. It can even result in an unsuccessful hire.

Your chances of successfully relocating a key executive increase dramatically when you provide corporate relocation spousal assistance. CCI Consulting has proven success in providing customized job search assistance for trailing spouses to meet the relocating spouse or partner’s unique needs.
