Mission

At MOVE Guides, it is our mission to make it easy to move around the world. We believe that in order for companies to compete at a global scale they must be able to easily and efficiently source talent from and place talent to anywhere in the world.

Moving is ranked as one of the top five stresses that an individual can undergo in their lifetime. It is for this reason we strive to provide the highest quality relocation experience to those employees undergoing a relocation or assignment. We do this by developing the best relocation tools possible combined with a modern personal support approach.

Our History

Where Everything Started

MOVE Guides’ founder, Brynne Herbert, moves to London after working in finance in Asia. She arrived in London to a sublet apartment without hot water and internet, and unable to get a bank account or mobile phone. In a fit of frustration, she asked her husband why it was so hard to plan a move and so easy to plan a holiday. And he said: “You should change it.”
