Award-winning recruitment consultancy MERJE welcomed football legend Denis Law CBE to the celebrations marking the Grand Opening of their new Manchester-based headquarters on 13th December 2018.
Alongside teams from both of MERJE’s Manchester and London offices and specially invited guests, Mr Law was introduced by MERJE Non-Executive Chairman Jon Manson and was invited to cut the ribbon for Bank House as well as unveil a plaque commemorating the event.
Mr Law was also joined by former-Manchester United player Alan Wardle to celebrate the launch of the purpose-built offices in Whitefield and guests were able to chat to the football stars whilst enjoying food and drink at the party.
The new offices comprise of two 2,900 square-foot floors owned by MERJE and designed and built to their specifications using local suppliers. The bottom floor houses the Northwest team, with the top floor space available to rent for commercial use.
Richard Abelson, co-Founder and Director at MERJE, said, "It was truly special to have a local football hero at the Grand Opening of our new offices. We are very thankful that Denis Law and Alan Wardle were able to attend and spend time here meeting our teams, friends and family. We are proud of the working environment we have created in our new office and glad we were able to finish a standout year for MERJE with an event that celebrates our recent successes and we look forward to a successful 2019.”
The move to a new Manchester headquarters follows the London team’s relocation to larger premises in Fleet Street at the beginning of 2018 in what was a year of expansion and growth for the company. The year also saw the launch of new Front-Line Talent services in the Customer Contact department, the launch of Procurement recruitment services, the launch of a new fully-featured MERJE website and the winning of Recruitment Partner of the Year at the Credit Awards.
