Spousal Assistance from Dovetail

Support for the accompanying spouse is really at the heart of our relocation services at Dovetail. Research proves that the happiness and well-being of the accompanying spouse is one of the most important factors in the success of an overseas assignment. Executives can only focus 100% on their new roles if they know their partner is settling in well.

Having arrived in the UK, Dovetail can offer a range of spousal assistance solutions, including comprehensive settling-in services and career advice support for expat spouses seeking employment in the UK.

Our spouse support settling-in services cover the following essential areas of integration, which make up our “Integrate in 8” checklist:

Our settling-in services for expat spouses include a personalised dossier of local information designed to help them quickly establish their new lives in the UK.
