The experts

Our Customer Contact Team

You won’t find a team as close-knit but spread out as this one. There's Barry enjoying Buckfast up in Scotland, Neil working from the comfort of his countryside abode in the North West, the troops in the Manchester office and Natasha putting down roots in Yorkshire. They were doing Zoom team meetings before it was cool.

Whether you’re looking for permanent or interim, candidates or opportunities, anywhere in the UK (and occasionally Europe). Even if you don’t quite know what you need just yet, they can point you in the right direction.

​ “What makes the difference between MERJE and many other agencies I have dealt with is the simple principle that they take the candidates seriously and are absolutely open and honest with them. The consistent factor I would like to highlight here is that they never disappear; candidates are supported before and after interviews and receive honest and constructive feedback from agents who are always professional and available. Well done MERJE!”

“I have worked with Neil Johns & MERJE for a number of years. They are a market-leading agency with a strong network across multiple industries. They have a track record of filling a range of customer contact roles and I would not hesitate in recommending them.”

​Neil is a first class recruiter and has delivered exactly what I was looking for on every occasion I have used him. What I particularly like is that he takes the time to deeply understand what I am looking for, both in terms of the person and the deliverables of the role, and he then takes the time to match all aspects to my business and my team. This is not easy in the IPMI industry! Neil doesn't send people who are not a great fit and this not only saves me time, but also respects the candidates career goals. Couldn't recommend him highly enough. ​
