Stephen Fletcher

Managing Consultant - ProcurementSpecialising in Procurement

With too many years’ worth of experience in recruitment to mention, let alone remember, Stephen leads the Procurement and Supplier Relationship team at MERJE. Working predominantly across the Financial Services and Banking sectors to complement and support his many experienced colleagues, Stephen provides a consultative service to all his contacts to ensure that results are achieved through a positive recruitment process.

Longevity in recruitment requires a sensible work/life balance, and so in his down time, Stephen gets to the gym on a regular basis, as well as walking his dogs. Many Saturdays are spent supporting Leeds United (it’s been tough!).


Working for MERJE has allowed me to build up the Procurement offering in a structured manner. The strength and reputation of the other parts of the business allow me to work in the consultative way that I enjoy. There is a cohesion and camaraderie across the whole company. Yes there are incentives, prizes, recognition, support and encouragement but, above all else, there is laughter, lots of laughter.

Loves & Loathes

Stephen loves his family first and foremost and is proud of every single one of them. Football comes a close second and he also enjoys live music and long walks. He still manages to throw his frame down snowy mountains once a year (others call that skiing!).

Stephen loathes, above all, the arrogance which was rife in the recruitment world for many years. He’s not too keen on baked beans either.
