MERJE's 5th birthday brings £5m turnover
MERJE is celebrating its fifth anniversary and has declared its turnover this year projected to break the £5m barrier.
Directors Jonathan Abelson, Richard Abelson and Edward Manson launched the company in 2011 and now run offices in Manchester and London.
The company made eight new hires in 2015 and has celebrated turning five by adding another nine members of staff this year, bringing the current total to 33.
Turnover after the first year of trading was £370,000 and that figure has risen year on year, with 2015’s turnover reaching £4.8m and this year’s turnover projected to be in excess of £5m.
Having initially focused on financial services - and in particular risk and compliance - MERJE now boasts finance & accountancy, internal audit, credit risk, customer contact and financial crime departments and has also entered into the contracting market, placing candidates in temporary and interim positions.
Director, Jonathan Abelson, said, “Our overwhelming growth can be attributed to the firm’s unique understanding of the specialty recruitment market and by continuing to provide excellent service to our network of clients and candidates.”
He added, “We are extremely proud to have 100% staff retention at consultant level and are committed to strengthening the business further by focusing on our core specialisms and expanding into new areas. Here’s to the next 5 years and beyond!”
