About Meridian Business Support

Meridian Business Support is a multi-sector employment agency, specialising in temporary, permanent and contract recruitment across four key sectors - industrial, built environment, office and professional and health.

Meridian Business support has grown from one small office in Altrincham, to over 30 locations nationwide and is now one of the largest independently owned recruitment agencies in the UK. Despite its size, the company retains a family feel and the wellbeing of its employees is at the forefront of every business decision made.

Meridian have an ethos of promoting from within, wherever possible, to ensure that their people get to go for opportunities as they arise. The L&D team play a key part in supporting this ethos by offering an extensive range of in-house training courses to upskill their people. This starts with on-boarding new starters effectively to enable them to get their Meridian careers off to a flying start.

The organisations core principles of Partnership, Integrity, Excellence and Innovation are fully embedded in the company; and they really do live and breathe them. They love to recognise and celebrate excellence within the business and share achievements via daily emails from the CEO and updates in the monthly e-newsletter. They also hold an annual awards event that celebrates the successes and achievements of their people.
