About Meridian Business Support Limited

Meridian Business Support (Meridian) is the UK's leading multi-sector recruitment specialist, providing both temporary and permanent candidates to clients in the industrial, health, built environment and office and professional sectors.

Their values of innovation, partnership, integrity and excellence remain at the heart of everything they do, and play a significant role in helping the business achieve their vision of being a sustainably profitable, sales led business and providing “best in class” service for customers.

Meridian's values are visible everywhere around the business from the website, the intranet, the employee handbook, icons on the walls in some branches and head office and on all the policies and procedures.

Communicating people's successes and recognising both personal and team achievements help to inspire employees to do their best. This is shared across the business from the top down, with the Chief Executive Officer Derek Skelton thanking people for their commitment and hard work almost daily.
