About Us


I am Rosemary Darby-Jenkins, HR Guru, owner and director of Signpost HR Solutions.

I have been a Human Resource professional adviser for over 30 years and have amassed generalist and specialist HR experience in leading organisations in both the public and private sectors. I was most recently employed in a large, multi-site organisation undergoing transformational change. There’s not much I haven’t seen or advised on, but I would never say never……!!

With significant expertise in HR and Change Management, I have had extensive exposure to Employment Law and Employee Relations, developing HR Strategy and delivering high quality support to business teams. Based in Christchurch, Dorset, I have been working as a freelance HR Consultant since January 2010, supporting a wide variety of businesses across the UK.

I advise my clients on every aspect of HR, from Employee Relations and Employment Law, Change Management, HR Strategy, Organisational Development, Coaching and Mediation to Reward and Job Evaluation. I also deliver workshops in Management and Leadership Skills and Employment Law to enable people managers to gain confidence in managing day to day HR issues.

On a personal level, I am married with 4 children and 1 grandson. I love to be involved in the local community and am a Trustee/Director of Sturts Community Trust and of the Sheltered Work Opportunities Project (SWOP). In what little spare time I have, I enjoy creating and eating good food, relaxing with friends and the warmth of the Majorcan sunshine!
