Tom Cook

Consultant - AnalyticsSpecialising in Credit Risk & Analytics

(He/Him)

​I started out in recruitment in the Tech market. I cut my teeth in the industry working across a mix of permanent and contract hires covering DevOps and Infrastructure. 

I am now part of MERJE's formidable Credit Risk & Analytics team, and I focus on pairing the best data-focused and analytical talent with a range of businesses, particularly in the Financial Service and Banking industries.

Why MERJE?

I worked with Mandy Thompson (Consultant, Front-Line Talent) previously and she couldn't speak highly enough of MERJE. 

After having a chat with Ellie about the team, the MERJE culture and the intriguing area of Credit Risk that I would be working in, I was completely bought in!

Loves & Loathes

I love spending time with my family, running, playing guitar and, of course, going on long adventures with my dog, Gus.

I loathe bad drivers, especially people who don't indicate!
