About Us.

In 2017, Jo Palmer launched Pointer Remote with a mission to support those geographically isolated from the workforce, by connecting professionals in rural Australia with remote work.

As a trailing spouse in Singapore, Jo met other highly skilled expats facing challenges such as a lack of professional connection, isolation from the workforce and a stagnation in learning. Jo founded The Trailing Spouse Co to ensures trailing spouses globally have access to connection, their minds are stimulated and you are always learning.


The Trailing Spouse Co understands that while your physical location or visa status may restrict your ability to work, it shouldn't mean your career is over.


Being away from family and friends, as well as restrictions in your career can be isolating, but we believe connection plays an enormous role in making the trailing spouse experience a good one.

Capacity Building

The Trailing Spouse Co aims to build your capacity, both professionally and personally. We believe on-going education and learning plays a vital role in life as a trailing spouse.
