Team Jimble

Wensley Norden

Global mobility expert and CEO

``Asking me where I’m from and what I did previously is irrelevant to me. I don’t judge a person by their past, but by their strength in character. What do you truly long for? What are your true strengths and talents? Will you seize an opportunity when it’s presented to you?

Before Jimble, I founded two other successful businesses which mostly taught me that I don’t like hierarchy and that I’m not at all impressed with titles. After all, we’re all the CEOs of our own lives.

My strongest quality surfaced quite early on in my career: I love to be of service! Back in 2016 when I launched Jimble, I felt this business could really do with an upgrade in that sense: service is key, and the only way to achieve that is by really listening, and reading between the lines. I manage, coach, and advise everyone on team Jimble. Yet in the end, I’m just one of the team. To me, it’s about continuously innovating and making sure everyone stays motivated. I like to create a working space that’s peaceful, and safe, leaving room for everyone to explore and excel. It’s wonderful to see how we as a team are constantly challenging and learning from one another.

I’m all about the helicopter view, always thinking three steps ahead. It often feels like there are too few hours in a day; I’d rather be tired than lazy. Both in my professional and personal life I’ve been able to adapt to any type of situation. I think that’s brought me to where I am today.``

Marije Peddemors

Director Client Services

``For me, working in the relocation field for over 15 years started out of sheer curiosity and enjoyment for working with people moving from different spots across the globe to the Netherlands. Throughout those years, I experienced working for global DSPs, but chose Jimble to bring my expertise and to continue pursuing my passion for relocations on a more personal scale.

From onboarding new clients to ensuring Jimble has consistent processes in place, my role at the office constantly flows between day-to-day operations and overseeing interactions with partners to add the utmost value. With the philosophy of “Teamwork makes the dream work” constantly at the back of my mind, I support Jimble’s team in its pursuit of excellent service to all of its clients.

In a statement of diplomacy and tact, I believe that everyone brings their skills and specialties to the table — that’s where I bring my listening and bridging-differences skills, possibly aligning a room full of different opinions to focus on a joined mission.

If given the opportunity to relocate myself, I would choose Thailand in a heartbeat. I’ve been there many times, and the beauty of nature generates a feeling of freedom which is not only fulfilling, but I also wholeheartedly cherish it.``

Astrid Rundberg

Operations and HR

``You could say my background is quite multi-faceted: I studied journalism back in the 90s, worked as a producer in television, and then in fashion retail. For eight bustling years, I was manager and buyer for one of the finest luxury stores in Amsterdam. At least, if you ask me. Then it was time for a new adventure, a steadier one at the office.

I started at a game development company and because of my strong analytical insight, I ended up being their user acquisition manager. Since it was a start-up I also quickly got involved with hiring.

At Jimble I’m both the HR and Operations manager. I work closely with our founder, Wensley, offering up a fresh perspective wherever I can. I’m a jack of all trades and a team player all the way. What I love most about my job here at Jimble is how versatile it is; you get to work with so many different people and cultures.

What I really enjoy is organizing a fun event for my team. To me a positive, uplifting company culture is everything! And my organizational skills are definitely my strong suit.

At the office, I’m known to be the party girl and the office mom. Also, at home, I'm a proud single mom of 2 young adults. We’ve had some ups and downs in life, but luckily I don’t get stressed or back down easily.``

Jonathan Galloway

Director of Partnerships and Marketing

``You could say my start here at Jimble has been somewhat unconventional, but definitely compelling: I initially was a client of theirs when my family first moved to Amsterdam. During this emigration process, I gravitated to the staff out of sheer curiosity and their straight-out kindness. They were genuinely interested in finding out who I really am; I was eager to learn more about their activities. Then the dream scenario came up, a job opportunity as Manager of Client Cultural Integration & Quality Assurance at Jimble. I now help assist people with similar experiences to my own.

A few years back I moved to The Netherlands from The States looking for a better quality of life, one that I definitely found here. I studied in Los Angeles, California, with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. During my ten years of management experience in retail and finances with two different firms, I obtained my notaries certificate. Doing what I do now takes a very meticulous, strategic, and well-organized approach. My colleagues will attest to the fact that I’m extremely reliable, and with such a big life change on the horizon clients definitely have to feel they can fully depend on you. I pride myself on two of my greatest strengths in life: leading by example and diplomacy. At the same time, you have to be flexible: no job is the same, and each file is to be dissected, studied, and followed through with a sense of empathy based on individual needs. This keeps me excited and motivated.``

Stephanie Olfers-Boersma

Senior Client Coordinator

``Because I have been an expat myself – in Azerbaijan and Denmark, two vastly different cultures – working at Jimble suits me well. I understand the struggles and emotional hardships but also the sheer joy and excitement that comes with relocating quite intimately.

Metropolitan places like New York and London have an energetic pull on me, but I have found my home here in The Netherlands. With the excellent bonus of being in any other lively European city within just a few hours of car-drive.

My job as a client coordinator requires me to help new Amsterdammers (or anywhere else in the country) settle into their new surroundings. When all goes well, I find this to be extremely satisfying.

Every day at Jimble brings bold, new challenges: something I like to take head-on. I’m pretty much stress-proof and I work very precisely and organized. This gives me the chance to navigate and solve any little roadblock that pops up along the way quite easily.

I’m not one to sit around and wait until something happens: I’m a go-getter. That’s also how I got this job – something I’m still grateful for to this day.``

Bárbara Rebelo Matos

Client Coordinator

``I am originally from Portugal and I moved to Amsterdam with a dream of becoming a professional kickboxing fighter and it has been such a journey that I am grateful for and learned a lot from.
I have been living in The Netherlands for 6 years and I still have a lot to learn from Dutch culture! I have worked for many years in the Fashion Industry and recently I was looking for something different where I could feel that my job was more meaningful. Then I found Jimble!

At Jimble I have the chance to help people in a situation that I have been in before. Understanding the struggle of moving abroad helps me help them better. As a Client Coordinator, I participate in the process of assisting people relocating to The Netherlands. My organizational skills contribute to providing this service in the smoothest way possible. I always like to plan my days in advance so I have a better vision of what needs to be done and I can feel more relaxed in that way.

Described as a happy and focused person by my colleagues, being dedicated to what I want with a positive mindset and a smile on my face always helped me to overcome many obstacles in life.
If I had to emigrate again I would definitely choose a warmer and sunnier country haha, living here made me realize that the sun is very important in my life! So I would say that my next destination would be Brazil. It is such a warm and beautiful country to live in. I would also take the chance to visit Amazon Rainforest since I love nature.``

Malika Felix - de Kraaij

Client Coordinator

“My background is in education and law: I studied classics at the University of Pennsylvania and have a law degree from New York University. I also ran my own tutoring business in NYC. Taking a break from work, I came to Amsterdam for a course on the history of esotericism. That’s where I met my husband, who is Dutch, and we’ve decided to stay in Amsterdam for its international appeal and village feel. A friend of mine happened to be a client of Jimble, so she recommended that I check their job postings after her good experience with their team. When I saw the description for the client coordinator role, I knew I had to apply!

For this role, I assist people in their relocation to the Netherlands, from finding the right home to finding a local dentist. Meeting people from international backgrounds and helping them transition into their new lives is something I love, but I also understand how overwhelming it is to relocate. The best work task for me would involve research. I like digging into an issue and learning everything about it. I’m open-minded, willing to help, and compassionate. I never lose sight of the human side of a situation, and this has helped me step into my client's shoes to view things from their perspective. As for my work style, I’m organized but flexible. Sometimes you have the perfect plan, but the universe decides to throw a curveball your way. In those situations, I find it’s best to go with the flow and be open to new possibilities that may arise.

If I moved countries again, I would choose Mexico City. I love the food, the architecture, and the international community there. Since California and the Caribbean play a part in my life, a warmer climate also appeals.”

Farah Almazouni

Marketing & Communication Specialist

``I'm originally from Syria, but I moved to the U.S. in 2012 after the war, then I moved to the Netherlands in 2021, so I am an expat myself.
I have a master's degree in mass communications from Florida International University (FIU).
I ended up at Jimble after working for one of their partners. My role at the company changed from client coordinator to marketing and communications specialist.

I would describe my working style as always being open to learning. I love learning by asking as many questions as possible, so I can deliver better results based on good knowledge. I dislike having to guess my way forward. My greatest strength is that I don’t bend easily under pressure. This has helped me overcome a lot of situations in life.

If I were to emigrate to another place, I would choose New Orleans. I’m an Amsterdammer now, but I spent a few years in New Orleans in the past, and I found that the two cities share a lot of similarities when it comes to vivid culture and delicious food options.``

Fernando Lynch

After care Coordinator

``Born in the smallest Caribbean island of Saba and raised in Curaçao, I moved to the Netherlands to continue studying at the University of Leiden.
After the successful completion of my studies, I worked in various international companies, covering different positions such as Customer Service, Team Lead, Mobility Consultant, Project Manager, Office Manager, and Sales Ambassador.

Here at Jimble, as Client Coordinator, I am responsible for offering full support to the Mobility Consultants and for managing the Departure Services and the Aftercare program we offer to our expat clients.

Among my colleagues, I'm known for my positive attitude, team spirit, and dedication. I consider my open and approachable personality an asset.

Some of my greatest strengths include inquisitiveness and willingness to learn and explore new avenues.

If I were to relocate myself, I would choose Bali, Maldives,… or many more destinations! In such places, you are in touch with nature and therefore with yourself! Furthermore, the friendliness of the locals, the great cuisine, and the fascinating sceneries such places have to offer are beyond imagination!``

Mona Smit

Relocation Consultant

``What I find to be the most satisfying about my job is when you find that one ideal home for your client. While additionally everything around this housing process just runs smoothly. This is how I can really be of service, and make someone happy, and I love how you get to know people quite well in a very short time frame.

As a relocation consultant, I aim to be of added value by helping people feel instantly at home. Oftentimes finding the perfect place to stay is the first step to getting there.

At business meetings with my colleagues, I always hear: 'Keep it short, Mona!' (Laughs) I guess I’m quite opinionated, I don’t like “no” for an answer and I definitely have a lot of stories to share.

Before I worked in marketing, PR, and event organization for many national and international companies. I traveled a lot, and worked with many different cultures.

Bali, Indonesia, has a special place in my heart, because of my Indonesian-Dutch heritage, as well as Hawaii! Many close friends live there and one of my favorite pastimes is Polynesian dancing.

The last couple of years before I joined Jimble I missed that 'international experience', something I value a lot.

My mentality has always been “can do”; I’m a problem solver to the core. All the while striving for harmonious ways of keeping any working relationship steady and healthy and keeping things positive.

Every day is a new opportunity!``

Renata Gomes de Souza Pio

Relocation Consultant

``I am originally from Rio de Janeiro and I have been living abroad for more than 20 years, starting in the Netherlands and then coming and going in between as an expat with my family to Russia, Vietnam, and Thailand. My work experience switched from international trade to recruitment than to social development and migration causes. After years of working in this field and moving back to the Netherlands, I wanted something that would connect my life experience with my work in a new dynamic way.
Then I found Jimble and the work here is the perfect match to what I was looking for.

I am inspired to work as Relocation Consultant at Jimble as I am doing what I like to do; working with people, hosting, and guiding them to the first steps of settling in a country. Moving to a new country is exciting and challenging at the same time. I’ve been there and I know how comforting it is to be assisted and guided for this new start.

I believe that the challenges can be adjusted once our approach and communication run smoothly within the team and with our clients. My organizational and time management skills are now in the game as never before. It is great to learn and improve along the way.
My goal and motivation is to make our clients feel welcome and supported in finding a home and never forget how our services helped them in this phase. I like working with customer service, in a multicultural environment where I can coordinate assignments, assist and provide guidance.

I’m a cosmopolitan with a talent for languages and am keen to learn about cultures, people, and new places. If I emigrate again I really hope it will be to sunny Spain.``

Mohamed Aguerhiou

Property Manager

``For as long as I can remember I have loved working with and really getting to know people from all over, providing every level of service that’s desired, with mutual respect as the common denominator. Respect, that should always be the starting point in every endeavor.

My roots lie both in Amsterdam East and Morocco – Nador, a coastal city in the wild Rif region that I love to visit to see family members – while I also worked and lived in Tenerife, on the Canary Islands for seven years. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, that’s an understatement. Both on the island and back in The Netherlands I worked in hospitality: from selling goods on the local market to holding the position of duty manager at multi-star hotels.

In the end, I found my calling at Jimble, charged with operating several real estate properties. A great, ever-dynamic opportunity that I thoroughly enjoy.

At the office, I’m known as the 'handyman'. Just like my fellow co-workers I’m very well-rounded when it comes to working, and I’m very practical. If anything needs to get done, I’m on it and I make sure to get it sorted in no time.

Overall, I think it’s my life experience, solid faith in myself, and simply courage that got me places. Every day I’m curious and excited to reach new heights in the professional field.``

Nino Norden

Office Support

``Born and raised in Amsterdam, I have been working as a model since I was still at school. Modeling offered me the opportunity to travel a lot and live abroad in many different cities, which consequently made me more open-minded. I have worked and collaborated with people from all over the world, and I believe this is key when you work for the global mobility industry.

At Jimble, I am responsible for Office Support, which includes supporting my colleagues in any way possible so that we can deliver excellent service to our clients.

My greatest strength would be that I am relaxed and always friendly. Maybe sometimes too relaxed haha. But being friendly helps a lot in maintaining good relationships.

If I were to emigrate myself, I would love to go to either Barcelona or Tokyo. Barcelona because of how beautiful the city is and how relaxed everyone is. Tokyo because of the work ethic and the constant rush the city has which gives you a lot of motivation.``

Dolly

Emotional Support

Dolly is a true Amsterdammer, who will tell you the truth but in a supportive way. She also works as security for the building by barking at anyone who dares enter. Everyone at Jimble feels very safe with Dolly at work.

Dolly spends her day checking in on everyone and asking for a nice belly rub from desk to desk. She loves eating eggs and chewing on a good bone in between her daily tasks.

Dolly’s spirit animal would be a panda as they resemble each other from head to toe. Her favorite toy is also a big panda, she can’t work without it.

We are very lucky to be blessed with such a good Emotional Support employee and we wish every office could have their own Dolly.

Lou

Head of security

Don’t let his big smile fool you, Lou is a stern and serious security officer with boundless energy to chase the bad guys away. Splitting security duties with his smaller colleague, Dolly, he relies on muscle power, though appearance, and deep barks to scare strangers (or clueless cyclers) away from Jimble premises if not invited.

Although intimidating in size, Lou is secretly a good boy and a sweetheart underneath it all; always making sure to follow his best friend’s instructions to the T. Lou also happens to enjoy the occasional office nap where he lays on his back against cold tiles during warmer days, and in a comfy gigantic bed in winter.

His hobby is dismantling plastic bottles with his paws and teeth for fun. Lou’s, favorite toy on the other hand is, surprisingly, a skinny pink flamingo. We love having Lou around - we especially enjoy his snoring mid-day as we all work hard in the background. Good for you Lou, good for you.
