Meet The Team

Work Psychology Group was founded in 2003 by Professor Fiona Patterson and Dr Máire Kerrin who are both leading figures in the field of Organisational Psychology.

Work Psychology Group are renowned for their research-led approach to business psychology and have developed a global reputation for being thought-leaders with the ability to produce practical results and sustainable solutions.

Fiona and Máire have hand-picked a team of highly-skilled practitioners with wide-ranging expertise in all sectors both on a national and an international scale.  Our unique blend of strong organisational experience and academic proficiency enables us to translate the latest research into practical, innovative solutions; something that we pride ourselves on.

We are always keen to hear from individuals who have a business or a psychology background and a desire to succeed in a unique and exciting research-led consulting environment.  If you are interested in joining our team, please check our ‘News and Events’ page where any current vacancies will be listed or you can contact us directly.
