Turnover up 21% at year-end 2019 for MERJE
MERJE has released its results for the year-end 2019. For the year from January to December 2019, the company achieved annual revenue of 10.06m, an increase of 21% on its 2018 turnover of £8.6m.
Across MERJE’s seven core disciplines, which include Risk and Compliance, Finance and Audit, Customer Contact and Procurement, the business enjoyed an impressive 22% increase in contractor placements.
Andrew Varty, managing consultant of the finance and audit team, said: “We have observed a continuing demand for our contractor services by our clients, who look to quickly and seamlessly draft in niche expertise to provide support with projects and skills gaps.
“While we anticipated major challenges for clients on account of IR35, the delay has enabled continued stability during present circumstances. We predict that COVID-19 and the current climate will result in organisations furthering requiring the specialist services that contractors are able to provide.”
Jonathan Abelson, managing director and co-founder of MERJE, said, “It is a fantastic outcome that we were able to achieve such significant financial success in 2019 and even more impressive despite facing difficult market conditions. They include the inherently competitive nature of our industry, a rise in in-house recruitment teams and high demands of clients around certain skill-sets.”
