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.

​“We recently had a requirement for a Senior Compliance Manager. Although five agencies were briefed on the role, only MERJE identified candidates who met our needs. All three final shortlisted candidates were introduced to us by MERJE. I have dealt with MERJE for a number of years as they offer a unique insight into the compliance market and they only ever submit candidates who meet our brief.”

​ “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 was contacted by Edward at MERJE and it was a very quick and clean process from start to finish. He has a very good understanding of who is right for a role and will not put someone forward if he doesn’t think they are capable or qualified. Regular contact and updates were very good and you get the sense that they care about their clients and their candidates equally. All in all, an excellent experience and I will certainly use them to recruit in my new role as my team grows."
