Marie is just great, excellent in every respect! I have had the pleasure of working with her on two major people projects for the charity, one was a large scale organisation restructure and the second was a new ‘green field’ HR and payroll system selection and implementation. These were both undertaken in the last 20 months, during the pandemic, when normal business practices were suspended and/or had to change due to social distancing regulations. During this period, her agility in adapting to these new ways of working, guiding and reassuring colleagues, was commendable. Marie’s passion and energy for understanding critical business challenges and the priority landscape was clear. She provided a fantastic service and was extremely committed, the whole HR team and board of directors were very impressed with Marie’s’ knowledge, experience, work ethic and extremely lovely manner. A very accomplished, professional, personable and patient individual (we changed the goal posts on numerous occasions!) who I would have no hesitation in engaging again or recommending to any organisation. Deborah R, Director of People and Culture, Animal Charity.
Marie was engaged by us on an interim basis, starting from Q4 of 2019, to provide generalist HR support and to help us with our ongoing people agenda and strategy. This was during a period of business change and transformation and her support and advice was invaluable. The onset of the pandemic situation in 2020, introduced new challenges and Marie was there to help and guide us on the people related aspects throughout. We were very pleased with the support provided during the time that she was part of our team and would definitely recommend HRMK! Chris M, Managing Director, Brand Agency
We engaged Marie from HRMK to help us implement a restructure following a TUPE acquisition to bring it in to line with the rest of the organisation. There was a significant amount of data and information to be collated to create the business case and also highlight any business risks; however, Marie took all this on board and formulated a plan of how we were going to proceed and guided us through the process step by step with the result that we were able to implement our plan to timescale and within budget. This was the first time we had attempted anything like this, however Marie’s knowledge and experience kept us on the right track and gave us great advice throughout. We were so pleased with her work that we engaged her to work with us again on three more similar projects which all ran smoothly and were delivered in the midst of a global pandemic! - highly recommend, Jane M, HR Business Partner, Private Healthcare Organisation.
We engaged Marie from HRMK to help us implement the necessary HR procedures for our start up business. Her knowledge and experience were evident from the outset and she quickly understood what was needed. She provided sound, practical advice regarding areas of concern and ensured everything was properly in place to grow our team – highly recommended.

We have been delighted with the project work that Marie Jay has led on behalf of our business. Marie has consulted on two major projects, the first being the Gender Pay Gap published report and developing the strategic plans. Marie approached the project with professionalism and offered a number of solutions and was incredibly diligent in her approach. The other major project that Marie Jay has led on is to conduct a review of all legacy contracts in order to harmonisation terms and conditions. All of this was delivered in tight timescales, working in collaboration with the key stakeholders to build a proposition that can be delivered. Marie has been a great asset to the HR team and her professional guidance and advice exemplary. Sarah L, HR Director, Medical Services Organisation
