Jo Donlon

Head of Business Support

(She/Her)

I started my career as an office junior, before progressing to an executive PA and then an office manager. A truly dedicated ‘office mum’, I keep the MERJE office running like clockwork and make sure that it is both a happy and healthy place to be.

In my spare time, I enjoy the great outdoors, whether I'm cycling, digging on my allotment or walking in the countryside with my family and dogs.

Why MERJE?

Quite simply, MERJE embodies the saying “choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

Loves & Loathes

I love my family (canine and human), G&Ts and sunny days.

I loathe loud eating noises.
