Relocation assistance and information for international candidates
Supporting you with your relocation to Durham can start well in advance of your arrival. Once you have made the decision to join us, we are happy to discuss the relocation requirements of you and your loved ones (including pets), to agree and understand the levels of support you need. We will then work within agreed timescales to ensure everything is considered before you arrive.
We can provide practical information on living in the UK, from advice on the cost of living, opening a UK bank account, obtaining your National Insurance Number, to driving in the UK. We can even provide advice on what to bring and what to wear.
If it would be helpful to you, we can provide an overview of the local area, accompanying you on visits to predetermined areas that may be of interest to you and family for your new life in Durham.
This service can include:
- A local area overview highlighting housing, healthcare, shopping, local authority services, parks, places of worship, sites of historic or cultural interest, leisure facilities and public and private transport networks.
- The provision of an area information pack with up-to-date local maps of Durham and surrounding towns, the Durham Pocket Guide and a selection of regional event guides.
