Samantha Noorduijn

Head of Merit Group

Being a strong, independent, ambitious, and flexible individual are all key traits that I possess and are ones which serve well at the Merit Group. My journey at the Merit Group commenced in August 2006 following the completion of my BA (Hons) Business degree during that summer. I had previously gained invaluable customer service and sales experience throughout my university degree by working for a Retail Marketing Company which I believe put me in good stead when I decided to embark in a career in recruitment. I was particularly interested in the opportunities on offer at the Merit Group, the culture and forward thinking attitude of the company and people, which was why I knew it was the company I could see myself growing in.

Earlington Levendale

Fulfillment Manager

Earl joined Merit in 2000, having moved to the UK from Zimbabwe in 1999. One of Earl’s first roles in the UK was with Merit as an administrator. However, it was clear from the start that Earl had excellent communication and organisational skills and a star quality. As a result Earl rapidly worked his way up from Junior Consultant, Consultant, Senior Consultant through to Business Manager within the recruitment aspect of the business between 2001 and 2009.​

Alongside his commitments to Merit Recruitment Earl also found time to manage the IT maintenance, planning and development within the organisation, a real jack of all trades!
