Consultant - Finance & AuditSpecialising in Finance & Audit


I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2014 in Mathematics and due to my numbers background decided to pursue a career in the accountancy world, specialising in both internal and external audit over a six-year period.

Two years ago, I decided to move over to the other side of the fence and take on a career in audit recruitment. It's a path that has always intrigued me - I am a very people orientated person and loved the idea of helping someone find a new role! I really enjoy specialising in the audit sector as it gives me the opportunity to leverage my knowledge and experience gained from my previous career.

Now, as a member of the Finance & Audit team, I pair brilliant audit professionals with opportunities and businesses across London and the south east, including internal audit, external audit, assurance, and those just starting their careers to heads of audit.

Outside of work, my passion is sports. In particular football, golf, and tennis (you will often see me frequent the Wimbledon Championships multiple times a year!).


Sounds cheesy but what stood out to me was the people! It was important to me to find a company which aligned to my values and provided a supportive working environment. MERJE ticked those boxes.

Loves & Loathes:

💗 I love Reading FC, dogs, and curry

💔 I loathe Reading FC's owner, heights, and wasps
