Adam Jones

Principal Consultant - ActuarialSpecialising in Actuarial

I graduated from Newcastle University back in 2015 and it didn’t take long for me to pursue a career in recruitment. I focus on the Insurance and Actuarial market and have built a network across both the interim and permanent sectors.

I pride myself on being a consultant that candidates and clients can really trust, as well as demonstrating a strong technical understanding of my market. Covering a nationwide remit, I mainly focus on developing our Insurance client base to maximise our offering in this space.

Away from the office, I love all things, such as sport and If im not in the gym working out, you’ll find me watching local non-league football on a Saturday afternoon. I closely follow football, golf, F1 and NFL, which means Sunday’s are pretty much always spent in front of the TV!


MERJE offers a great opportunity for me to thrive and develop surrounded by an amazingly established team of consultants. The company's approach is very much based on the right principles and whilst Actuarial is a new market for the business, it complements their other areas of operation. A short commute to the office and a very friendly set of colleagues are a huge factor too!

Loves & Loathes

I loves dogs, a good beer garden and exploring the many dining options around Manchester.

I loathe pigeons (or any type of bird for that matter).
