    You receive a day off for your birthday, which is amazing!
    Meridian have support me during my pregnancy and I feel confident through the way my colleague have returned to work that this will continue when I return from maternity leave.
    Meridian have also supported me through acquiring various professional qualifications.

    Sometimes people are asked to hot desk but they like to have their own space.
    The broad range of products and services that Meridian supplies can make my job more complex

    I have been working at Meridian Business Support full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Been at Meridian Business Support for 8 years since leaving University. Grown from Trainee Consultant to Branch Manager in that time. They invest in people, reward loyalty, and give you clear, realistic progression. Unpressurized, relaxed atmosphere where success is rewarded. Never have the feeling that someone is looking over your shoulder all the time.

    Plenty of 'extra curricular' activities including yearly awards do, football tournaments, go karting and more!

    Cons

    It is a hard job with long hours, but that's recruitment for you. The fast paced environment can mean your day runs away from you, but as long as you work hard and stay on top of things, the rewards are worth the stressful days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being visible and contactable. Listen to staff and take their concerns / advice on board as to how to continue moving the company forward.

    I have been working at Meridian Business Support full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Local & national recruitment agency - credible as an established member of REC with VERY loyal client base and candidates that continually use and recommend the local branch of Meridian in the Hereford branch – Great colleagues with management team that don’t rely on old dated trading methods, good financial rewards.
    New CEO - Derek Skelton REALLY understands the business and in a short time is getting the genuine respect of everyone and with over 30 years experience - he knows.

    Cons

    None to mention as company is still winning awards for the way they conduct their business, best practice and as a best place to work for – probably needs to do a better job in promoting their good experiences to others - its just gets on with the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing more of what you are doing and rewarding those who are bring the business in increasing amounts to this reputable business generally people come here through recommendations.
