The experts

Our Procurement Team

When he’s not placing Procurement Specialists or chatting to Category Managers, Stephen can be found on mammoth hikes (he was crowned MERJE’s #WalkThisMay 2021 Champion), at the gym or occasionally on a skiing holiday. Give him a call to catch up about everything from supplier relationships to Leeds United.

Whether you’re looking for permanent or interim, candidates or opportunities, anywhere in the UK or even if you don’t quite know what you need just yet, Stephen 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."
