Gravity partners with NHS to house overseas staff

UK: Flexible living brand Gravity Co has partnered with the NHS to house overseas staff coming to work in the UK.

The NHS is actively recruiting doctors, nurses and other medical professionals from overseas to help fill staff shortages. NHS Trusts are working with accommodation providers to support the initial move and onboard new recruits.

Gravity is providing self-contained studio apartments to new NHS staff as a short-term accommodation solution when they first arrive in the UK.

Riccardo Tessaro, co-founder and CEO of Gravity Co, said: “It’s great to be able to support the NHS in providing some of their recruits with a welcoming and fun place to live while they settle into their new life in London.

“Moving home can be a stressful experience, but even more so when you’re relocating from a different country. At Gravity Co, our goal is to provide a flexible accommodation option to support corporate relocation from one to 12 months, not just to the NHS but organisations everywhere.

“We include utility bills in monthly rents, offer communal spaces for residents who work from home and host weekly member social events that help those who are new to the city to create a real social network. With plans already in motion to launch Gravity Co in mainland Europe in 2024, we’ll be able to further support our corporate partners outside of London in key European cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Milan and Paris,” he added.
