The experts

Our Financial Crime & Fraud Team

Andy Hodson was the first consultant to join MERJE back in 2012. His many years with the business, now fortified with the expertise of Emilia, Jimmy and Pritesh, as well as the resourcing skills of Sam, has made this team incredibly capable when it comes to Financial Crime & Fraud recruitment.

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 just yet, they can point you in the right direction.

​"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."

​I have had contact with MERJE for at least two years and they successfully placed me into a fixed term contract. They were very informative and straight forward to deal with and simply couldn't do enough to ensure everything went smoothly, which as a candidate is immensely helpful. Since moving on they have maintained regular contact to advise me of upcoming opportunities and offer any support, which really sets MERJE apart from a lot of their competitors. I just wish they could place me in all of my fixed term contracts! ​

​I highly recommend Andy as a recruitment consultant having worked together for a couple of years now. Andy not only recruited me into my current role but also now assists me with the recruitment of candidates into my team, putting forward only those candidates who closely match our requirements. Andy has excellent people skills, is trustworthy, honest, very proficient, helpful, and a good negotiator with quick and accurate responses.
