Working at MovePlan
No two days are ever the same. Our people work together in a supportive and stimulating environment that is characterised by teamwork, respect and innovation. As a team, we would describe ourselves as friendly, hardworking, and supportive. When it comes to diversity and inclusivity, we respect and champion everyone’s choices, background and orientations.
We pride ourselves on our fully flexible approach to working – since the business started, and long before hybrid working became the norm, we have been supporting our people to work flexibly.
Due to the nature of the work we do, we are frequently required to be on site with our clients. When on site, remote working isn’t possible, however, at other times we support our people to work flexibly, which can mean working remotely where appropriate.
As a female-owned and led business, diversity, equity and inclusion are baked in our DNA – we reward people based on their performance, not their personal characteristics, and we welcome all backgrounds to apply.
We understand the importance of looking after our people – after all, they are the ones that make our company. Here are just some of the ways we show our appreciation.
- We provide extensive employee benefits including paid time off, time off in lieu, pension, healthcare and competitive salaries
- We will give you a 1 month sabbatical after you have worked with us for 5 years and every 5 years after that
- It’s your birthday? Take the day off!
- We believe in the power of giving back: we provide time off to volunteer for a charity of your choice
- Love working with us and want a friend or someone you know to join too? We offer a structured employee referral scheme
We also offer a range of region-specific benefits.

MovePlan in the World
MovePlan was founded in London in 1986 by Cathy Ridley, who, when tasked to relocate the office of the company she worked for, realised there was a more professional way of managing the move. Fast forward 30+ years, and MovePlan has grown to become the global business it is today, specialising in change management and relocation services, while remaining proud of its founding heritage.
