An experienced Client Service Manager on every move makes sure everything goes to plan

Many HR, Mobility, Recruitment and Graduate Leaders are choosing to adopt a cash-based relocation allowance approach for their employees moving overseas. Aiming to reduce administration time and effectively manage costs there is a known risk of allowing employees to buy services from unverified or unqualified sources, to save money.

In 2018 GMS was set up to deliver moving services to private individuals wanting to move internationally. By 2020, 80% of GMS customers were moving for work related reasons and were directly or indirectly funded by their employer.

To meet the needs of these customers GMS introduced a flexible moving program that mitigates the risks of moving and at the same time enabled the linking of relocation services. Allowing you to move with peace of mind and focused on your new job!

Maximise the benefits

GMS specialises in managing global relocation services for individuals and families moving overseas to work.

When you are provided with a cash-based relocation allowance the team at GMS ensure they manage the moving requirements within budget, with all services being delivered from within our approved ‘Global Partner Network’ ensuring we deliver great value and service on every move.

Minimise the risk

GMS takes away the risk of searching online and making buying decisions that could dramatically impact the success of an international move.

Companies providing ‘relocation allowances’ can simply provide their employees with a link to our GMS Services Team, who will coordinate the relocation anywhere in the world.
