I am currently working on a contract for a client in the Wealth and Investment management sector to implement a new Front to Back office system. The process with Meraki has been excellent. I initiated contact through a colleague regarding a specific role and was put forward by the team. Meraki was clear in the requirements from the end client for the position and was confident in matching applicants to the role to meet expectations. Through early conversations, Meraki made sure they understood my requirements and expectations for a role as well as the role details and end client expectations. Following my interview, Meraki was proactive in keeping me updated and liaising with the client regarding the decision to offer the role, or not. Having secured the role the paperwork process was competently handled with the minimum of fuss. The role has been an excellent fit for me and the end client in terms of my skills and their expectations and the contract period was extended. Based on direct experience to date with Meraki and having worked with agencies since I began contracting in 2010, I would rate them highly and will be happy to deal with them going forward."
I recently used Meraki Talent to source a new role in Edinburgh within the financial sector, after working in London for a few years. Although Meraki Talent was a name I recognised, I had not dealt with them before. After submitting my C.V for a role, my job search was coordinated by Gordon Willmott. From the outset, my job search was handled with enthusiasm and
professionalism, and Gordon was always open, honest and engaging during our communications. Although I wasn't selected from the final stage of the first role that I applied for, Gordon stayed in contact and soon found another role which was of interest to me. Gordon provided excellent interview preparation materials and was open, knowledgeable and enthusiastic at all times of a lengthy three round recruitment process. I would not hesitate to recommend Meraki Talent to any friends or family members, or indeed for any future job searches they would be my first port of call. Meraki and Gordon are passionate about what they do, and it was a pleasure to deal with them. I can say with certainty that it would be the correct decision to select them during this process, as I know that they are one of the most reputable recruitment companies within the financial sector."
