“I joined Bournes early in 2014 as a UK move coordinator with no experience. I really liked that the company was a family run business and I am supported to progress and grow in my role. I’ve learnt a lot on the job from my colleagues as well as through training opportunities like the FIDI EiM course in Amsterdam which I passed in 2015 before joining the International Move Coordination team. What I love most about my job is our team, and the colleagues who have become best friends.”
“I have been with Bournes since April 2016 and one of my early impressions in the first few months I was part of the team was that when they say ‘with Bournes it’s personal’ it really is, and I thought this was great. As with any company of course they have an eye on the bottom line and the success of the business, however, it was quickly clear to me that as a company Bournes seem to have their eyes very much on listening to and looking after the people that help to make the company what it is, which makes for a very happy place to be.”
A great company isn’t created by just a few people, it’s a team effort. Working at Bournes you’ll meet some great people and enjoy an excellent support network.
We value our people and recognise that our employees are our most valuable asset. That’s why we’re always working hard to make sure Bournes is a great place to work and that our team are rewarded for their achievements.
