Your family - a vital part of your assignment

A career as an International Assignee can be incredibly rewarding for those aspiring to upper management within the Schindler Group.

However, it’s not for everyone. Think carefully about what “ongoing global mobility” means to you. Assignments tend to be for a specified duration, but you may not be able to choose where you work or when exactly you move. You could be asked to relocate on short notice. This can be an exciting opportunity to some and a challenge to others, especially when partners or family are involved.
