We used Mark David HR because they came highly recommended. Rob Grinter listened to our problem and came up with a solution which we implemented immediately.

We engaged Mark David HR Ltd after receiving a recommendation from a business contact about the quality of their services.  I have to say that the recommendation was a good one. The service we received was very professional and suited our requirements perfectly. I am more than happy to recommend them to others.

Stone Technical Services had previously employed a company to provide HR services on an ad-hoc basis.
With the growth and development of the company I saw fit to hold discussions with a few HR providers. It was immediately evident that in Rob Grinter of Mark David HR Ltd I had found someone who genuinely cared about our business and that the advice he would provide would reflect that.

We now have in place a fixed -term multiple years contract with Mark David HR Ltd and for the first time I genuinely feel as though we have someone behind us with both the knowledge and the level of care that will see us through any potential challenges or difficulties in this area.
It is no understatement to say that I view the relationship with Rob as being akin to any of our permanent employees and he is, in every sense, one of the team. I look forward to years of happy business dealing with Mark David HR Ltd although, if everything goes smoothly, with as little involvement as possible.

Rob Grinter is a life saver; not the coast guard kind but more the fact that his help has greatly freed up my time. Time is precious in business. The quality of the employee contracts made me realise how unqualified I actually was to try and hash together something that is a legal document.

The lifesaving bit comes into play in relation to the work he did for my life partner’s business. He has made her life exponentially easier which in turn has made life much easier for me.

His clear and to-the-point advice has helped improve her staff relations as well as giving her much more confidence. She was so impressed she took out an ongoing contract with Mark David HR Ltd

We both have no hesitation in recommending Mark David HR for any HR work.

Robs attention to detail and knowledge of the industry is impeccable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He has provided us with a safety net, tailored to our company, and provided myself with peace of mind which I don’t think you can put a price on

Earlier this year my firm engaged you to look through our office handbook and advise on a possible update.

We found your advice most helpful, realised that a new handbook was going to be needed, and therefore further engaged you to draft it for us.

As an office of 30 staff with many procedures and training practices the task was never going to be easy but you have produced an exceptional document that covers all the matters we wanted in a clear understandable way.

We are so pleased with the handbook that we have now asked you to look at and update our Contracts of Employment, of which there are 3 variants.

My Partners and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to our clients and contacts for clear advice and assistance on HR matters delivered in a prompt diplomatic and efficient manner.
