D (Doctorate in Industrial Sociology), a Graduate Diploma (Industrial Relations), and a National Diploma in Industrial Relations and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.


Mooney began his working life as a butcher in Dublin. After completing a formal apprenticeship, he moved into production management. He subsequently joined General Electric and held a number of increasingly responsible Human Resource positions in manufacturing.[1]

After G.E, Mooney worked with Sterling Drug in the start-up of their highly successful[2] plant in Waterford. Subsequently, as Human Resource Director for the Pacific Rim, he had responsibility for all personnel activity in South East Asia.[3]

On his return to Ireland, Mooney established PMA Consulting (1991), a specialised organisation and management development consultancy.
