Resourcer - Front-Line TalentSpecialising in Front-Line Talent

Melissa joined MERJE as a Resourcer to strengthen the already impressively successful Front-Line Talent team. She brings with her plenty of expertise within retail, sales and account management from her 12-year career with a leading retailer and her recent 360 Recruitment Consultant role where she established a commercial temp desk in the care sector. She has a fantastic customer focus and adds real value to the MERJE team.

Melissa supports the Front-Line Talent and Insurance & Claims teams in sourcing stand-out professionals across the UK, from entry- up to team manager-level roles within Customer Service, Collections, Sales and more. She focuses on building trusted, long-lasting relationships with candidates.


Joining MERJE was a very easy decision for me to make. They made me feel at home from day one and the management team are incredibly supportive and always on hand to offer guidance whenever needed. Their trusted approach to work is a breath of fresh air and allows you to grow and develop at your own pace. I have never felt more myself than I do now!

Loves & Loathes

In her spare time, Melissa loves nothing more than seeing friends and family and going on long walks and hikes that finish with a beautiful view.
Melissa loathes bad manners; it costs nothing to be nice!
