With KUMC's expansion and growth, many departments are bringing in top candidates from all over the United States. The Human Resources Department realizes that in order to entice our candidates to relocate to Kansas City, it is very important to not only show them the best of our Medical Center but to also show them to best of our great city. Therefore we are pleased to offer an arrangement that will inevitably assist our departments in the recruitment and relocation of key faculty and staff. This arrangement will allow KUMC to enjoy the benefits of a consistent and professional service that will permit each department to focus on their specific jobs rather than worrying about relocation issues.
To provide support during this process, The University of Kansas Medical Center has established a relationship with one of Kansas City's most well known real estate teams - Coldwell Banker Relocation Center. These Relocation Specialists will serve as a Buyers Agent acting in the best interest of our candidates. This partnership will give your candidate a chance to tour our beautiful city, help them find a new home in Kansas City, help them sell their current house, and aid in finding transitional housing. KUMC has also established relationships with two of Kansas City's most well known moving companies - Graebel and A.Arnold. As a result of our agreement, these relocation partners will pass along their volume discounts for moving services to Kansas City.
We do realize that your Department may have a relationship with another realtor, and we could not want to disrupt your business. However, we believe our partnership with the aforementioned real estate and moving companies will provide you and your candidate with far more relationship expertise than what a typical real estate agent can achieve. Together with our Relocation Specialist, Rhonda Bailey, HR Business Partner, will oversee the entire recruitment and relocation process from beginning to end.
If your Department has plans to recruit faculty or key administrative staff during the upcoming months, we encourage you to take advantage of this great program. If you have any questions or would like to discuss our Relocation Program in greater detail, please contact Rhonda Bailey at 913-588-7544.
