Meriton Associates is a recruitment consultancy born out of a desire to deliver responsive, cost effective solutions to our clients as well as a personalised and listening approach to the candidates who trust us to source their next career step.

Any company is only as good as the people that work in it and that is why we feel that Meriton Associates has a head start on its competitors. The company was formed at the start of 2015 by Peter and Ian, who have over 40 years of recruitment experience within the built environment between them. In an industry where recruitment consultants come and go, this knowledge is a major factor in why clients and candidates trust Meriton Associates to deliver for them.

We specialise in permanent recruitment and executive search within the built environment, offering our clients a unique and bespoke service tailored to their individual requirement/business.
