I have a question about this context.
[Jenny and Ronan are talking about a new job which Ronan has just obtained.]
Jenny: When will you get the contract then? When do you start?
Ronan: Helen's going to see Mary on Friday.
Jenny: Oh right.
I don't understand the second Ronan's response.
Is it a suitable resoponse to the Jenny's questions?
Who are Helen and Mary? It seems to me they are nothing to do with this context.
Could you give me any tips to understand this dialogue? What is Ronan talking about?

I can guess that Helen and Mary are involved with the job in some way. Perhaps Helen is Ronan's friend and already works for Mary, and Mary is Ronan's new boss. Helen will go to see Mary and collect a contract for Ronan. But that is just a guess, something else could be going on. All we know is that Ronan thinks Jenny will understand what he means, and Jenny does seem to understand.
