Marie Stafford

HR Manager

Marie is our HR Manager and joined Family Law Group in November 2020. Marie cares passionately about social justice and the care of children in legal matters, so joining Family Law Group was a natural fit for her.

Marie works from our Nottingham office but has a presence in all offices and is responsible for managing the HR function of the firm, including recruitment, coaching, training, employee relations, policies and procedures and improvements.

Marie studied journalism at De Montfort University and is CIPD qualified in HR Management, having been an Associate CIPD member since 2014. Marie has worked in HR for 10 years, 7 of which have been spent in the legal sector, the rest within the NHS. She has a passion for working within the legal sector and her expertise is in bringing a forward-thinking approach to HR, employee relations, coaching and leadership, attracting new talent and looking at recognition and reward.

Marie has a passion for helping disadvantaged children and has previously worked as a volunteer as a NSPCC ChildLine Counsellor for a year. Alongside this, mental health awareness and support in the workplace is an area close to her heart. She qualified as a Mental Health First Aid Supervisor (MHFA England) in 2019.

Outside of work Marie has a close group of friends and has a love of music, reading, dance, and the theatre. With a background in bar management prior to HR, she is keen cocktail maker. Marie travelled around Italy and Portugal on her own in 2019 and early 2020.
