"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.”
“We have found ourselves very welcomed into the community, through dog walking and sea swimming we’ve come to know many locals who have a wealth of knowledge and are only too eager to share and help out... even with the pronunciation of place names! We have also had lots of opportunities to meet up with other ‘newbies’ to swap stories and share information.”
“The process of relocating to Guernsey couldn’t have been easier. We didn’t come across any barriers and the information provided by Locate Guernsey was so helpful.”
"I always try to explain the uniqueness of Guernsey to my family and friends back in South Africa and Germany. The best way I could describe it is to imagine you work in a big city like London or Frankfurt. There is the same quality of work experience and mix of colleagues and clients, but the moment you step outside your office, you are transported to a quaint, safe and friendly town. A bustling cobblestone High Street and your home is a maximum of 15-20 minutes away in a serene seaside coastal village with the freshest sea air and the happiest squawking seagulls soaring in the sky."
