2020: A Year to Remember. Here We Break it Down

​We understand that it’s been a challenging year for everyone, on both a professional and personal level, but we’re delighted to report that our business is fighting fit and, heading into next year, we are planning to be in a stronger position than ever before.

We wanted to take a moment to celebrate some of our resounding 2020 success stories and most importantly to acknowledge some of the phenomenal efforts that have been made from our amazing people here at MERJE. This certainly wouldn’t have been possible without our team, who continue to go the extra mile for their clients and candidates.

We continued operations with minimal interruption throughout the health crisis and were repaid by the dedication of our team, which has led to some exceptional results over the course of this year. With that in mind, we’d like to congratulate them whole-heartedly for all their hard work and tenacity to get through during this unprecedented economic situation.

We would also like to thank our clients and candidates across our core disciplines for continuing to place their trust in us as we helped them grow their teams or secure new roles throughout 2020.

Indeed, while some areas have been more badly affected than others, many of our clients have shown resilience and continued on their growth trajectories. At MERJE, we have relished being part of all of these journeys and have learned a lot through our support of businesses across a variety of industries. We’ve collaborated on some difficult but extremely rewarding searches across FinTech, Hedge Funds, Payments, Banking, Wealth Management and Insurance, to name a few, which have kept us busy throughout the year.

We’ve also taken this time to better refine our processes, manage the marketing of the MERJE brand more effectively and embrace new technology developments to move with the times! Most importantly, we have a fantastic leadership team which continues to lead from the front and has ensured our successful navigation through this extremely testing pandemic.

Our continued success has allowed us to focus on our strategy moving forward, which resulted in us setting up four new disciplines covering Legal, Actuarial, Broking and Claims.

Added to this was the appointment of a new Business Manager for Scotland, which meant that we were able to expand our geographical footprint to other UK territories, building on a record annual turnover in excess of £10m last year and allowing us to strengthen our position as one of the UK’s most successful independently owned consultancies.

Once again, we’d like to thank all of those who have joined us on our journey this year and to our existing team members for their continued hard work. We look forward to working with you all again next year.

We’re hopeful that 2021, which marks MERJE’s 10th anniversary, will allow for some exciting new client propositions as well as a highly motivated team which continues to strive for better. Bringing talent together!

Wishing everyone happy holidays and a safe, joyful New Year.

Ed, Jonny and Rick
