We have welcomed a new member of the team this week and we can’t wait for you to meet them! John Mullen is an HR consultant UK who has an extensive career in all things HR. Find out a bit about john and how he feels about his first week working at the HR Booth.
My First Week
‘I have joined The HR Booth this week, having worked in Human Resources for over 30 years. I first started working in Human Resources when I joined the Royal Air Force in 1986. In addition, I spent 24 years in a variety of roles and locations in both the United Kingdom and Overseas. On leaving the Royal Air Force in 2010, I then moved to BAE Systems, where I spent almost 4 years providing HR Support to the Typhoon Aircraft Service. I then moved to an Occupational Health Company, Duradiamond Healthcare in 2014.
After this,I also had the opportunity in 2015 to become involved the Queensferry Crossing. I consider this to be the most iconic Engineering Project I will see in my lifetime.I spent 2 years on this project working in a unique and exciting HR role. On completion of the Queensferry Crossing, I moved to Poundworld, in 2017, where I spent 8 months. Furthermore, unfortunately the business succumbed to the turbulent times which are affecting the high street and retail in particular.
HR Consultant UK
I welcomed the opportunity to join The HR Booth. I feel this will give me the chance to become involved with a variety of clients and businesses. It more importantly will allow me make a positive impact.
My first week has now passed, and the role as a HR Consultant UK has certainly lived up to my expectations. I have spent time in the office familiarising myself with the different types of businesses we provide support to, and the varied HR challenges which I will encounter. In addition, I have attended a meeting of local businesses, and I have been able to sit in on recruitment interviews.
‘A workplace conducive to adding value’
In my opinion, The HR Booth is all about creating a workplace which is conducive to adding value to our clients. I look forward to enjoying my time with the business and meeting all of the clients over the coming weeks.’
