A good dose of people skills

 

Jill works as a move coordinator for the moving division in Antwerp. “I am responsible for the practical side of the moves for diplomats. This means being in very close contact with them at a time when they are under a lot of pressure. After all, moves always involve a certain degree of stress. I try to reassure them as much as I can. A healthy dose of people skills is definitely a bonus in this job!”

“There’s no such thing as a typical work day for a move coordinator,” Jill laughs. “Every day, new situations crop up that demand a solution. From car registration papers that the customer has lost, to reserving warehouse space, to temporarily storing someone’s personal belongings. It’s not a 9-to-5 job. If the phone rings at 5:00 in the afternoon, I am just as happy to answer it as at any other time of day. I can’t imagine leaving my customers in the lurch.”

Green blood

“Gosselin has grown a lot in the last few years and has become much more international. I am very proud to work here, and am not afraid to admit that after eight years, I now have ‘green blood’. What I really like are the flexible working hours, and that you can set your own schedule. And last but not least, there’s a great team spirit here. This makes the work fun, even when it’s really busy. Sometimes, I go have coffee with my co-workers in the afternoon. I also see some of them outside of work.”

The woman behind the co-worker

Jill is 29, and travelling is her hobby. “I love seeing a lot of the world. When I schedule my vacations from work, it’s to go somewhere. I don’t have a favorite destination. I am equally happy to go to Thailand, Tenerife or back to Montreal, where I studied for a year after graduating from high school. I also love to play tennis, and to treat myself to a really good meal.”

In April, the American city of Auburn welcomed the Bernini & the Roman Baroque exposition. For this expo, fifty paintings and other objects created in the provocative style of Bernini, famous for the Trevi Fountain in Rome, travelled from Italy to Alabama. “This move owes its success to the tight scheduling and strict precautionary measures,” says Roberta from Gosselin Italy.

This question inspired the famous painter Goya to produce a series of etchings with humanized animal faces and fearful creatures. Petr’s team in the Czech Republic was responsible for the professional move of the Fisonomista expo.
