Manchester-based digital legal specialist mmadigital has appointed a new Head of People.
In the newly created role, Jayne Hennessey will be responsible for developing and leading a new people strategy, including talent acquisition and development, benefits and wellbeing and employee engagement.

Our people are at the heart of this business and by preserving and building on what has already made us successful and respected by our team – rich talent, vibrant culture and teamwork, Jayne will develop and deliver an outstanding employee experience.”
Head of People, Jayne Hennessey added: “Joining a company at this stage in its transition is so very exciting, and it was the perfect opportunity I’ve been waiting for. There is so much potential in this new role and I can’t wait to embed the mmadigital ethos and culture across the organisation and create an even more positive work environment for all our people.
