Our Tour Partner Network

At PorchLight, we are passionate about helping people and families through relocation from abroad to the U.S. and Canada, or from city to city domestically – a stressful but exciting time.

We are looking for people who have the same passion, empathy and knowledge of their area to welcome families and help them immerse into their new community and get settled into their new home.

Our clients are being relocated for a job or assignment and much of living in the United States and Canada is new to them. Oftentimes, they will need support and expertise in learning the area and schools, finding rental housing, getting established in the community with banking, driver’s license, utilities, school enrollment, how to use appliances in their new homes and more.

Are you a fit for PorchLight?

  • Are you someone who is passionate about your community?
  • Are you customer service minded?
  • Do you enjoy research?
  • Would you describe yourself as patient and empathetic (the ability to understand what someone else is experiencing)?
  • Do you like to work in a team and partnership mentality?

If you enthusiastically answered yes to all of the above, working with PorchLight may be what you’ve been looking for!

This is a part-time, independent contractor opportunity.
