Thought leader on the hiring, organising & management of people


Marnie Jones started her career when she was 19. For 10 years she worked as a management consultant helping companies from $200k to $130m turnover get the most out of their businesses.

At 23 she was the Head Consultant for a small boutique firm in Sydney where she managed a team of consultants. Marnie held workshops and seminars for over 1,500 people over this time. She was responsible for more than 150 clients across varying industries such as mining, construction, child care, real estate, accounting, law, not-for-profit, manufacturing, printing and travel.

Current Work:

Marnie observed firsthand the true financial cost people have to the business and so decided to formulate a complete people service. In October 2020, Marnie launched Talent X - absolutely her greatest achievement to date. Talent X is what she dubs a “People Agency,” one dedicated to building truly productive, happy teams that are measured by their financial success.

Talent X is mainly known for its unique and revolutionary hiring process that boasts an 89% success rate and also for its 12-month retention guarantee; if the staff member leaves within 12 months they replace them for free. So almost 90% of the candidates they place stay. Talent X has scoured the internet for retention rate stats from other recruiting firms to no avail. As far as they can see, they have the best retention rate of any recruiter in the world.

Talent X is proud to share that 96.7% of our clients and 100% of our candidates report that they are better than a typical recruiter. Despite this, their services go beyond hiring as this is only one component of making a remarkable team. They have People Partnerships with their clients where they help reduce inefficiencies and increase revenue so it reaches capacity. They do this through team design & organising projects as well as management training.

Talent X grew ten-fold in 2021, working with clients in construction, fashion retail, architecture, accounting, law, manufacturing, food service and more. As a standout win, they landed multiple high-ticket contracts to the value of up to $250,000 - no small feat for a budding firm.
