“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 and later becoming the team manager. What I love most about my job is our team, and the colleagues who have become best friends.”

"During a really frightening and uncertain time for all of us (Coronavirus Lockdown 2020), Bournes has been a steady rock in a very torrential storm. The care and attention they’ve given to us, their employees, has been second to none both professionally and personally.

Through ensuring that we are up to date and comfortable with all the information we’ve been provided, they’ve also been diligent in ensuring working together remains safe for both our valued crew and our valued customers when business recommenced. It’s a huge hurdle for a company to overcome and Bournes have done it incredibly gracefully."
