New Corporate Manager at Britannia Movers International

Mar 17, 2015
Britannia Movers International has announced the appointment of Julie Knapton as corporate manager based at its head office in Croydon.

Julie joined Britannia in January from Bishops Move after nearly 14 years, where she was international manager.

Julie has worked in the Road and Air Freight Industry since the age of 18, moving to London from her native Poole at 22, before taking a one-year sabbatical to work as a volunteer for a mission society in Mexico City.

"I decided to join Britannia so that I could keep moving within my career, face new challenges and learn new skills,” said Julie. “Many of the roles I performed previously I am continuing to perform at Britannia but to a greater degree. Britannia has a lot of excellent clients and I see myself becoming the lynch pin between the accounts and Britannia to ensure the longevity and growth of the Corporate department."

When asked what she gained from volunteering in Mexico City Julie said, "Apart from honing my Spanish language skills I learnt how it feels to integrate yourself into a completely different culture, with different mannerisms and etiquette, and so understand how some of our clients might be feeling as they prepare to uproot their lives and move away from their families."

Outside of work Julie has a passion for animals and wildlife and spends every other Saturday volunteering at Wildlife Aid, which is an organisation that deals with the rescue, rehabilitation and release of UK wildlife.
