Mark Quirk


HR / ER / IR Specialist

Mark has built a career in strategic and operational HR/ER and IR over 30 years in both the public and private sectors. Mark sees his networks into employer bodies, unions and government at all levels extremely well developed and over this time, Mark’s skills have been utilised in training, advocacy, mediation, counselling and presenting.

“Having spent my career in HR I know it truly is a vocation. For me it’s been knowing where the right people are, the value they can add, and what it’s going to take to get them on board. It’s all about networking and building long term relationships of trust, understanding the world and the amazing people who work in it.”

During his career, Mark has supported senior teams with practical, workable and commercially realistic advice, understanding that careful risk management underpins every outcome. He values helping businesses understand their roles and accountabilities – including the parameters within which we all work, the consequences of not delivering, or breaking the “rules”, and ensuring there is due and fair process.

Mark has a keen interest in Australian military history, including many battlefield visits.
