International Assignment Guides


International Assignment Guides are workbooks to prepare potential expatriates and their families for the realities of working and living abroad.

The guides are available to download from our Expatriate Services website and feature questionnaires, case studies and checklists designed to raise awareness of issues that should be considered, discussed and resolved before committing to an assignment and before returning home. Accompanying guides for managers are provided separately.

Guides are available for three scenarios:

  • Planning to Work Abroad? - highlights issues for consideration by a family prior to accepting an assignment
  • Together on Assignment - for one partner to consider the challenges and opportunities presented by the other's assignment, whether going with them or staying behind
  • Returning Home - for the whole family to prepare for how things might have changed while they've been away
