IDA South East Relocation  Survey – Please take part.

 IDA South East Region, in partnership with Collins McNicholas, is seeking support from Companies (and organisations) within the Region in relation to a relocation survey that we are carrying out to showcase the Region as a vibrant location for employees.

This survey is for anyone that has relocated to the South East Region from abroad or indeed other parts of Ireland. 

The survey is being conducted by Collins McNicholas in partnership with IDA Ireland, and with the support of the County Councilof Waterford, Wexford, Tipperary, Carlow and Kilkenny as well as support from the Chambers of Commerce from the five counties. 

The purpose of the survey is to find out how people who have relocated to the South East Region have found living in the region since they relocated and how it has impacted both their career and quality of life. We are also looking to understand what the experience of moving to the region was like. 

It will only take 5 minutes to complete and you will be automatically entered into a draw for a brand new iPad Mini. The individual survey results will be kept strictly confidential and the general findings will be used to inform the marketing and promotion of the South East Region in order to gather relevant information for other individuals and organisations hoping to relocate.

**** Individuals contact information is requested at the beginning of the survey – this is used solely in the event that you win the draw for the iPad Mini and not for any other purpose. Please note they only have to give personal info if you want to enter the draw.
