MERJE has announced the hiring of Tom Snow in the newly created position of PR & Marketing Manager.
Tom, 32, formally Marketing Manager for Financial Times Career Management, is a marketing and communications professional specialising in digital marketing and cross-platform campaigns and has worked across the recruitment, education, events and music industries. As the first member of the MERJE team to provide an in-house marketing function, Tom will lead on new projects to acquire best-in-class candidates and clients across MERJE’s niche specialisms and sectors.
Tom’s appointment comes during a significant period of growth for the company. Since being founded in 2011 by Jonathan Abelson, Richard Abelson and Edward Manson, MERJE has seen its yearly turnover rise to £5.1million in 2016. They now employ over 30 members of staff and look to relocate their Manchester office from Bury to a new purpose built premises in Whitefield in early-2018.
Company Director Jonathan Abelson said, “We are happy to be welcoming Tom to the MERJE team during this period of growth and transformation. This is a key strategic hiring aimed at cementing MERJE’s position as one of the UK’s most successful independently owned recruitment consultancies.
“As a recruiter of high-quality talent in areas such as finance, compliance, fraud, audit, customer contact and wealth management, we are dealing daily with outstanding candidates looking to take their next step. Tom will help us reach and engage with these specialists in new and exciting ways, as well as support us in partnering with clients to understand their recruitment goals.”
Tom said, “I am thrilled to be joining MERJE during such a successful time. The team are more than recruiters, they are experts in their fields that focus on nurturing relationships and providing a tailored service. I look forward to working with them to deliver impactful brand marketing activity and campaigns that reflect their unique approach to recruitment.”
