Whether you are interested in sport, music, dancing, bird watching or cycling, there is something for everyone in Guernsey and our friendly and welcoming community is something which new arrivals appreciate. People have time to enjoy life after work and at weekends, thanks in part to shorter commuting times.
"Locate Guernsey proved an invaluable resource in preparing for our move and have remained our go to option whenever we need help with island life. No request is ever too big or too small and we feel confident that we can always turn to them when needed."
“Living in Guernsey has improved our work/life balance by far. Because everything is on your doorstep or a very short drive away, you can get so much done in a short space of time instead of wasting time in the car. I can walk the dogs, go for swim and do a food shop all before starting on the emails! Being able to walk by the sea really sets you up for the day.”
“There is always paperwork to do in life, but the relocation process has been relatively seamless and staff within the States of Guernsey departments helped us as well as the team at Locate Guernsey who provided support and helpful guidance. Having initially rented on the island we are now looking forward to finding our new home.”
"I'd say we still work just as hard, but when the day finishes it's so quick and easy to get to the sea or to town or any other activity, which makes the work/life balance better because we are doing a lot more 'life' whilst the same amount of 'work'."
“There were a few reasons why we chose Guernsey over other jurisdictions; the lifestyle and cultural values we read about prior to moving here were a definite draw; the more temperate climate was also an advantage; the tax situation here meant our financial plans for retirement became more attractive and that was a very significant advantage; functioning Public Services was also a bonus – Guernsey isn’t perfect, but generally things work pretty well, and that makes life easier and less stressful.”
