“My experience with international relocation support team of CNTW was best to be honest because, I came from India, and this was my first job working abroad. I was new to the entire process, I was very much nervous in the beginning but when I met Anne Marie Lamb, for the first time virtually via teams my all worries were vanished, as she made me very comfortable and helped me in every stage of recruitment process. Starting from orientation to the places, finding the best accommodation, finding the best school for my kid, getting a bank account and the list goes on and on, so I never felt that I was alone.

Later, I met with Monica DSouza and Laura Collins both helped me to clear my OSCE exams and not only that, but Monica is also like a family to us, I seek her support all the time and she was always there for us.

Finally, I can tell that this was the best team I have ever come across, very professional, kind, and lovely people. Thank you so much for everything.”
