About Justine Mooney

Known for my flexibility, reliability and confidentiality, I am a pragmatic and trusted partner.


As a senior Human Resources and Organisational Development professional with 20 years’ experience up to Head of Function level, I have demonstrable strategic and operational skills, knowledge and experience. 

I have designed and delivered improvement programmes; established, developed and managed highly professional HR Resourcing functions; developed and implemented a wide range of HR policies; managed budgets; reduced supplier spend; enhanced stakeholder relationships and delivered significant, sustained, people, process and technology improvements within complex environments. 

Since 2014 I have been operating as an independent consultant. I have supported a wide range of diverse organisations to shape and deliver their people strategy, and I have worked with individuals at all levels and stages in their careers to help them be the best they can be whilst at work. 

Qualifications and Experience

I am member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, a qualified workplace coach and mediator and a psychometric test provider. As a result I have a full range of skills and qualifications to support an existing people function or to provide stand-alone services.

Trusted Associates

Throughout my career I have been fortunate to work with some wonderful and inspirational people. I have maintained and built strong working relationships with several trusted partners whose expertise and passion I can call upon to support my assignments and clients.

Feedback From Clients


Head of OD, Financial Services

Justine is an outstanding HR change manager with broad experience working at the most senior levels of the organisation. Her strong commercial awareness and delivery focus combine with an awareness of people impact and strong consultancy skills to ensure change programmes are delivered effectively, on time and to budget. Aside from her work talents, she is also great fun to work with and a trusted colleague.

Managing Director, Private Clinics

Justine supported our business with our HR policies and processes during a time of change and significant growth.  She provided an initial audit and recommended areas for improvement. She then worked with us to make those changes, including several important recruitment campaigns.  She then hired and inducted a HR Adviser to take over the day to day running of our HR function. Justine has been professional, flexible and genuinely supportive and we continue to work with her for our more complex HR needs.

Head of Learning & Development, Financial Services

Justine joined our Academy team as the lead assessor for the Performance Management Development Centres, which we delivered to almost 300 line managers across the company. Justine ensured that the delegates experienced a supportive and challenging environment. She also facilitated skills-based activities, provided face-to-face feedback and collated written feedback to the individual and their managers to enable personal development planning. The management information from the Development Centres has shaped the learning interventions for the coming year, driving a coaching culture and improving the awareness of the skills needed for good performance management within the company. Justine fitted in seamlessly and quickly to the team, creating a collaborative and enjoyable environment. I would hire her again in an instant.

HR Director, Healthcare

Justine joined my team as Head of Resourcing. She led and managed a team of 22+ resourcing specialists which dealt with in excess of 8000 vacancies per annum, ranging from senior leadership positions to clinical and support service roles. She developed a number of recruitment campaigns which were very successful. Justine implemented Taleo, an online recruitment system, on time and on budget. She was respected by her team and her customers. She also managed a number of organisational changes with key directors. She developed an assessment process for the recruitment of senior leaders to support the business at a time of significant change. I really enjoyed working with Justine, and having her as part of my team.

Coaching clients

Justine provided me with terrific outplacement support and worked with me at the beginning stages of setting up a business. She is remarkably industrious and quick at making connections – between ideas and between people. Her strengths include making difficult challenges surmountable, and using her engaging interpersonal style to move conversations forward rapidly to key points and actions. Smart and enthusiastic, she is a delight to work with!


I had the pleasure of meeting Justine Mooney when I was made redundant earlier this year and my ex-employer outsourced Exceptional Outplacement to assist me in looking for and gaining  another position. I cannot stress enough how helpful this lovely lady was. I am at the latter end of my career and I thought no-one would want to employ me. I was at once informed "You are not old, you are highly experienced and we need to find somewhere that will value you for that experience.” I was advised on all the different stages and feelings I would go through as I faced redundancy and given a guide on how to handle the different stages. I would like to stress that this company has exceptional knowledge and they can offer great advice to people in similar circumstances who are wanting to obtain another position.
