Kirstie Burn

DirectorSpecialising in Compliance


I have more than 20 years’ worth of recruitment experience and now head up the MERJE Compliance and Financial Crime team in London. I'm also responsible for the delivery of successful recruitment campaigns, focusing on the Retail Banking and Financial Services sectors. With a background in management development and training, I've always enjoyed the relationship building side to the job, whether that is meeting new contacts, networking at any event (particularly if there is a nice cocktail involved) or ensuring that existing relationships are kept strong. 

I tend to have lots of well-laid plans to attend gym classes, but my appreciation of a crisp white wine means that I'm more likely to be found socialising (or networking!) in a city establishment. With three sons at home, I justify the time out of the house as I'm usually found running around the park at the weekends with the kids.


MERJE is just an unbelievable company to work for. You are surrounded by expert professionals who are very genuine, human and really interesting people. MERJE prides itself on its success, the confidence we have in our people and allowing everyone to be the individuals they are. It is a truly entrepreneurial culture where everyone’s opinion counts. Plus, we have the most amazing social agenda!

Loves & Loathes

I love my family, shopping, meeting friends and laughing.

I loathe noisy eaters and rubbish banter.
