Los Angeles, CA (October 10, 2019) – SabbaticalHomes.com is pleased to announce a partnership with the Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC). These two organizations serve the same academic communities and will partner to strengthen their respective initiatives.
HERC catalyzes inclusive excellence in the academic workforce and diversifies the pipeline of faculty, staff, and executives in academia through outreach, advertising, and by sharing over 40,000 job opportunities and expert career advice. HERC also provides over 700 member institutions with resources and networks to bolster equitable, inclusive recruitment and retention practices. This collaboration will mutually strengthen both organizations:
“SabbaticalHomes.com serves a unique need for busy academics on the move, and we’re excited to introduce their services to our members,” said Ian Reynolds, HERC’s Executive Director.
SabbaticalHomes.com has been the leading online directory for sabbatical housing and tenants for the past twenty years. Academics and scholars utilize the website daily when looking for home rentals, home exchanges, housesitting, and home sharing opportunities on a temporary basis.
SabbaticalHomes.com members can search a database of 7,000+ listings in cities across the world to find just the right home to rent or exchange – or the right tenants for their own home. Most home listings are available furnished to ease the transition of relocating, going on leave or traveling.
Founder Nadege Conger commented that “SabbaticalHomes.com will be especially valuable for HERC job seekers to be able to tap into the potential of renting from other academics and scholars when relocating. Our members use the site for sabbaticals, for travel and when starting a new job – which is often at a new university, in a new city or country. We are delighted to welcome HERC job seekers to SabbaticalHomes.com!”
Conger also stated that SabbaticalHomes.com members will benefit from the continuously updated job listings on the HERC website as they design the arc of their careers, as well as the wealth of resources around diversity and inclusion in the academic world. HERC is focused on inclusion and increasing diversity, and SabbaticalHomes.com is proud to be partnering with them.
When she created SabbaticalHomes.com in 2000, Conger envisioned the website as a way for scholars to arrange affordable housing and trustworthy tenants. Today, with this HERC partnership, SabbaticalHomes.com is providing even more resources for its members and extending the reach of its thriving hub of home and tenant listings, member resources and travel blogs.
