Arriving in the Region
When starting a new life in FrankfurtRheinMain (FRM), you have to get used to a lot of things. Help your new international specialist to settle into the region and into your company.
One of the biggest challenges all newcomers face is finding suitable accommodation. The tense housing market in FRM can turn the search into a lengthy and frustrating endeavour. It is even more difficult for international specialists as they are not familiar with the German housing market and often do not speak German well enough.
Give international employees support in looking for a place to live. The specialist is partly reliant on this, as proof of employment and salary are required by many landlords. Information about looking for accommodation is also very useful and can be included in a welcome pack. A lot of useful information on looking for accommodation can be found in our section on Living.
If you have sufficient resources, you can also actively provide support in looking for accommodation, such as offering the services of a real estate agent or by accompanying the employee to flat viewings.
Offer your support in dealing with authorities, as your new employee has a great deal to sort out at the beginning.
Settling in the region also includes discovering what there is to do, exploring the surroundings and in some cases contacting clubs or groups. You can provide support for this very easily by pointing out options, recommending websites or just being on hand to answer any questions. Have a look at our section on Discovering FRM where you will find many suggestions and tips.
If your new specialist is relocating to FrankfurtRheinMain with their family, they will most likely appreciate it, if you do not just support them, but also their family. Our portal provides a lot of information about this which you can refer to. The spouse can find information on looking for a job as well as suitable schools or childcare for their children.
