About Us

We have come a very long way in a short space of time.  We began our journey as a team of 2 back in January 2012.  Just over a year later we had 100 contractors working for us.  Fast forward another year and we launched our Learning division and founded Eloco which specialise in niche Engineering and Document Solutions markets.  In 2014 our London office opened which houses our Technology division and 2 years later in 2016 we opened our Leeds office and Finance division, a joint venture with boutique finance advisory consultancy FDYL.  Today we have 50 staff in 4 offices, specialising across 10 sectors.

At Woodrow Mercer we are proud to do things differently.  We have thrown the recruitment rule book out of the window and replaced it with an emphasis on trust and partnership.
