Some say they bear a resemblance to Bucks Fizz. Personally, we don’t see it. There are a few similarities; four people, two men and two women, around in the 80s. But our Finance & Audit team couldn’t be further from winning Eurovision if they tried.

However, they’re excellent at recruiting for part-qualified, fully-qualified, Finance, Audit, Accountancy, Treasury, Tax and Purchase Ledger roles, to name a few. If you’re having trouble making your mind up about who to turn to for your Finance recruitment needs, keep on reading.


    Two of our most practised team members sit within Finance, none other than MERJE Co-founder Jonathan Abelson and the incomparable Andrew Varty. Each has over 20 years' experience in pairing Finance, Accountancy and Audit professionals with leading employers.


    Where do we begin? Far-reaching LinkedIn networks and 12,000 Finance individuals on our internal database means that this team is incredibly well connected to a sea of Finance Managers, CFOs, Management Accountants, Treasury Analysts, Audit Managers and many more.


    Pragmatic, straight-forward and specialist, they know their strengths and will use them to meet client and candidate needs perfectly.


    This team thrives on crucial senior appointments, as evidenced by the fact that 73% of their placements in 2020 were senior manager level or above, and exactly half of these were triple figure salaries.

The experts

Our Finance & Audit Team

They’re an unlikely bunch, if we’re being honest. Jonathan, a Manchester City fan and avid sports player, partaking in everything from golf to table tennis. Andrew, no interest in sport whatsoever, prefers to spend his spare time on his ride-on lawnmower down in Cheshire. Gemma, the Scouse representative of the office, supports Liverpool FC and a contender for biggest MERJE personality. And Mandy, the go-to for office chat, the latest Love Island developments and always has snacks.

But together they create the unstoppable force that is our Finance & Audit team. Whether you’re looking for permanent or interim, candidates or opportunities, anywhere in the UK (and occasionally Europe), or even if you don’t quite know what you need yet, they can point you in the right direction.

​"I now choose to work with MERJE exclusively because they take the time to know who I am, my values, goals, aspirations and where I can add value. They clearly take the time to do the same for their clients because I have never been matched to an unsuitable role; this has given me every chance of success when attending an interview.”

​Having operated as both a Finance Director and a Managing Director within the property sector for over 20 years now, I have come across a large number of recruitment guys and without doubt Jonathan Abelson is the best property finance recruitment professional out there. He has an intricate knowledge of the clients and candidates within the sector and has assisted me as both a client and a candidate on a number of occasions. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan to clients and candidates alike.

Gemma recently supported us on a specific assignment. She listened, understood the brief first time, gave us expert and strategic advice based on her sound understanding of the market and delivered on the ask. Great to work with, felt like she was part of our team. Looking forward to future opportunities to work with each other.

Charlie, Chief People Officer, DF Capital
