Employer Sponsorship relocation package

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have been offered a job which the employer is sponsoring the visa & relocation package.

 

What would the typical package consist of? What should I ask for?

 

Many thanks in advance.

Hi

I think the main things that are included are flight costs, shipping costs and arrival accommodation for a couple of weeks. I know sometimes with the bigger companys you find and book your own accommodation and they refund you the cost.

Hope this helps a bit

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Thanks for your replys

 

I have had a conversation where the following as been discussed

 

 

  • Sponsorship of visas for the 3 of us
  • flights
  • A few months temp accomodation
  • Jeep & fuel card
  • Logistics company for furniture removal

 

Anything else i should ask for? what is the usual "few months accomodation"

 

Job is based in Adelaide salary $120-150K Good wage for decent lifestyle there? Is $150k do able during neg?

 

Just got this landed on me in the last few days, stressed out with all the information download to the brain.

 

But really lucky and glad to have the chance.

 

Thanks for all your help!

We are getting flight, visa, one month accomodation and tax assistance handled by the company. Then a lump sum of money for shipping, car rental, etc, beyond that for us to handle ourselves. Oh, I'm also getting spouse employment assistance.....so they are going to help me get a job after we get there.

Can I be cheeky and ask what occupation you do, as we are looking into getting employer sponsorship, and its helpful knowing what you can ask for.

In our case, my wife is a proffesional at a high-tech company. I do something similar but as a supplier role to the same company my wife works for. She has 10 years expereince with the business and an MBA in Management of Technology....so I'm sure that has a lot to do with the transfer approval and relocation package.

$120-$150 is generally a range that will depend on your experience. You probably could negotiate towards the upper end of that. Do check whether that number includes super, or whether they'll pay super on top of that.
