Founder Brynne Herbert set up MOVE after “painfully” going through relocating several times while working in finance. Determined that relocating should be more like planning a holiday – win-win solution MOVE was formed, making relocating easier for employees and cheaper for employers.

Created while Herbert was undertaking an MBA at London Business School, she recruited the founding team and raised an initial £400,000 seed funding round from experienced European investors such as Sherry Coutu, all before graduating. Since launching in 2012, the company has grown to become a tri-sided solution serving global companies, the employees and suppliers. Working through a ‘Talent Mobility Cloud’, which includes an employee hub, a HR hub and a support team, MOVE is able to assist employees in all areas of moving while saving employers 25% on cost. Since raising a follow-up institutional round of £1.1m and with growth of 100% planned for 2014, Herbert wants to continue to use innovations in technology and customer service to improve the relocation process, eventually extending its market reach to make MOVE Guides an accessible resource for smaller businesses too.
