Mandy Abelson

Senior Researcher - Finance & AuditSpecialising in Finance & Audit

After many years in the Advertising World, Mandy decided to take the plunge 3 years ago into the world of Finance recruitment. And she hasn’t looked back since! From planning media campaigns to finding Finance and Audit professionals their perfect next career step, Mandy is all about forging strong, genuine relationships and supporting both candidates and clients however she can.

When she is not resourcing for the likes of Finance Directors, Audit Managers, Accountants and the rest, Mandy can be found either online shopping, watching trash TV or looking to book her next holiday.

Why MERJE?

I chose MERJE because of the values and work ethic that we uphold every day. I feel like I am an important part of a family where everyone is striving for the same goals. The collaborative working environment is second to none and, without wanting to sounding too cliché, it really is a case of work hard and play hard. I never have that Sunday night dread of a new working week because I couldn’t ask for a better team to spend five days a week with!

Love & Loathe

Mandy loves Grey Goose, anything carb related and feeding snacks to the entire Manchester office as much as she can.

Mandy loathes loud eaters and liars.
