Back office, business development + relocation consultants

35 back office staff and relocation consultants all across Switzerland support our clients. Our staff share the same entrepreneurial way of thinking. „Nine to five“ is not part of their vocabulary. This creates a climate of ownership and responsibility crucial to the successful execution of any relocation.

Most of us at Switzerland Relo have either been expats or still are. We have experienced, what an international relocation means and the challenges, that come with it.

This creates a unique and outstanding sense of empathy and dedication which in turn results in transferees being more productive sooner and in happier HR managers.
