Customer Contact Testimonial One

What makes the difference between MERJE and other agencies is the simple principle that they take the candidates seriously and are absolutely open and honest. A consistent factor is that they never disappear; candidates are supported before and after interviews, and receive constructive feedback from agents who are always professional.

Financial Crime & Fraud Testimonial One

MERJE has a very good understanding of the AML markets and won’t put someone forward if they don’t think they’re capable or qualified. They regularly update you and you get the sense that they care about their clients, as well as the person they’re putting forward. All-in-all an excellent experience.
