The Female Empowerment Of Career Development

Contributor, Kirstie Burn, who has more than 20 years’ worth of recruitment experience, heads up the MERJE Compliance and Financial Crime team in London (also covering Risk and Legal). She is also responsible for the delivery of successful recruitment campaigns, focusing on the Retail Banking and Financial Services sectors. With a background in management development and training, Kirstie has always enjoyed the relationship-building side of the job, whether that is meeting new contacts, networking at any event (particularly if there is a nice cocktail involved), or ensuring that existing relationships are kept strong. Kirstie always has lots of well-laid plans to attend her gym class. However, her appreciation of a crisp white wine means that she is more likely to be found socializing (or networking!) in a city establishment. With three sons at home, she justifies the time out of the house as she can often be found running around the park at the weekends with her children. You can find Kirstie on LinkedIn.
