Business Manager - AML, Financial Crime & FraudSpecialising in Financial Crime & Fraud

I manage the Fraud and Financial Crime desk in the north. My extensive experience of recruitment within Fraud and Financial Crime and previous background in Fraud Management for a bank ensures that I'm well-placed to understand the market and assist clients and candidates with all of their recruitment needs.

I was the first consultant to join MERJE in 2011, before quickly progressing to business manager. I've now been recruiting into the Fraud and Financial Crime space for more than 13 years.

I've been a Manchester United season ticket holder for 25 years and attended my first game aged three. I enjoy keeping fit, watching cricket, cycling and open water swimming


MERJE is a genuinely great business to be a part of. I’ve been working with a number of the team for well over a decade and regard them as close friends. It feels great to be working for a business within which you can truly have an influence on shaping the future, while your day-to-day contribution is recognised and appreciated. The directors have instilled a working environment which is fun while still being professional and the incentives are rewarding for all members of the team.

Loves & Loathes

I love Manchester United, Miniature Schnauzers, coffee, fraud prevention, and working out with Paul Clayton.

I loathe DIY, decorating, and pandemics.
