Tom Parker

Senior Consultant - ActuarialSpecialising in Actuarial

​Tom grew up just outside Hull, before moving to London 4 years ago and eventually moving to Manchester earlier this year. His career so far has focused on sales and marketing, first as the sole business development manager at a disruptive tech start-up and then within financial services recruitment for the last four years. He has always had a keen interest in financial services and has a passion for bringing commercial opportunities to life, so headhunting in this space ties the two together really well.

Tom focuses on placing quantitative risk and actuarial candidates across financial services, usually within Insurance or Investment Management firms of various risk appetites. His typical placements are candidates studying for their CFA or FIA and continuing their career within Investment Risk, Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), Asset Liability Matching (ALM) or Capital teams.

In his downtime, Tom can often be found training for endurance events. He recently completed his first 70.3 distance triathlon and is currently working his way up the distances with the aim of doing his first full distance IronMan next year!


I joined MERJE because of the culture. Recruitment can notoriously be focused on the KPIs, often forgetting that what we do is actually very human. MERJE has a great team with lots of different personalities and they focus heavily on the ‘people’ element! That was really important to me.

Loves & Loathes

Tom loves running, music, sport and of course, the pub!

He loathes slow walkers – "I don’t get it, don’t they have anywhere to be? Just why?!"
