Karen Buxton

Support Assistant

(She/Her)

I have worked in admin in various posts for more than 30 years. My job at MERJE is to efficiently and accurately format CVs, create job advertisements, write up contracts and generally provide support for a very busy (sometimes demanding) recruitment team.  

In my spare time, I love to watch films, go to gigs and the theatre and socialise with family and friends.

Why MERJE?

Working for MERJE is amazing. The directors and managers understand the importance of prioritising your family and encourage staff to make sure they achieve that perfect work/life balance. Every member of the team holds the company’s ethos and values at the core of what they do. We may work very hard, but we are greatly rewarded for it, with plenty of team meals, socials, spontaneous prizes and general recognition. The bar in the Manchester office is a big bonus too!

Loves & Loathes

I love my family, friends and wine.

I loathe rudeness and bad grammar.
