At CityMatch, we help the top recruits of local employers and higher education institutions make London home.

CityMatch is a locally owned and operated relocation and settlement services provider that connects top talent and new recruits to London, and supports area employers and educational institutions who face intense competition for talent.
We give individuals and families moving to London a street by street introduction to their new city, and take the worry out of creating a home base that’s even better than the one they left behind. And we support students that need to land softly in London and settle-in quickly for short, intensive education experiences.
