Why Meridian Search & Advisory

The most important thing you should know about us is that our first priority is helping you.

Company director, Sonja Gunn, found her ‘meridian’ in financial markets recruitment after working for some of South Africa’s leading institutions. With more than two decades in, and a true understanding of the culture and landscape of the financial services industry, she identified the need for a bespoke recruitment process that offered genuine understanding of the needs of the client to ensure that culture and skill-sets are perfectly matched.

At Meridian, we listen carefully, react quickly, and offer coherent advice. Operating at the intersection of culture and talent, and understanding what you need, whatever the challenge, is the key to our success, and earns us partnership status in the eyes of our clients.
