Making the move – Experiences from our employees
Learn and see what some of our successfully immigrated employees have to say on “making the big move” Down Under.
“The chance to relocate to Australia with Rheinmetall was a career opportunity I could not pass up.  Moving half way across the world with my wife and two children was the best decision I have made so far.  RDA were so supportive in our move, helping us every step of the way.  Being quite an anxious time in our lives, RDA’s global mobility team made it simple and less stressful for all of us.  Their communication was regular and consistent and the support offered in setting us up for our new lives here in Brisbane was incredible. I am grateful for the life experiences my kids are having now, in a new country. It is game changing for them.”

“When the opportunity presented itself to relocate internationally to Australia and be part of the Land 400 Phase 2 program, I jumped at the chance.  Even though we were in the midst of a global pandemic I took the gamble of a lifetime and moved half way around the world to take on a new career challenge.  RDA provided incredible support to me with assisting in my relocation from the moment I accepted the role.  The Global Mobility team were instrumental is facilitating my departure from Europe and arrival into Australia, including providing support with all of my required documentation and interaction with various vendors, even putting me in temporary accommodation and offered support in helping me find suitable schools for my child.  I felt so comfortable and informed throughout the experience. My family remains in Europe for now, but will be joining me out here very soon.  RDA is providing all of the support to get them here too.  It is such an incredible opportunity for all of us.”
