Meet the Team: Danielle Mullen

July 2022

Danielle Mullen is our Operations Manager, and she oversees much of the work we do here at MM Search. Danielle has been with the company since early 2020, and her unparalleled organisational skills have been invaluable to our growth and development.

I decided I wanted to work in recruitment…
Recruitment was intended to be a stop-gap for me, but this year I’ll celebrate my 12th year in the industry! It just goes to show that everything happens for a reason.

I joined the MM Search team…
In early 2020 – just before lockdown! I had worked with both Ken and Derek before and was delighted to join their new business.

The first thing I do when I get to the office is…
Sort through my emails and tie up any loose ends so that I feel prepared for my day. Then we usually have a morning meeting to run through our roles and establish what needs to be actioned next.

My working day involves…
Lots of variety! I recently moved to a new role as Operations Manager and so I oversee a lot of the activity in the office. Some days I will be focused solely on the roles that we have to fill, while other days, I might be working on the financial side of the business; I really enjoy the pace and variety that my job offers me.

My greatest professional strength is…
My organisation and diligence.

The highlight of my career so far was when…
I decided to join MM Search. I had previously worked for a huge corporate company and so moving to a new business felt a little daunting. However, I’m so happy that I believed in Ken and Derek’s vision and made the right decision.

The thing I love most about working with is…
Being able to create a work/life balance that allows me to be at my best both professionally and personally.

When I’m not at work, you’ll usually find me…
Up a hill! I love hillwalking and like to head for Loch Lomond or Stirlingshire to enjoy some fresh air and beautiful scenery.

My motto is…
There is always something to be grateful for.

My goals for the rest of 2022 are to…
Smash my new role as Operations Manager! There’s some more responsibility involved with this new position, and I can’t wait to get started.

On a more personal level, I also want to keep making time to enjoy the outdoors. This year I have tried cold water dipping and paddleboarding, as well as doing lots of hillwalking and I’ve found that spending time outside helps me mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

My secret skill/party piece is…
I can touch my nose with my tongue!

What was the last gift you gave someone?
I sent a friend some flowers and chocolates to congratulate them on their new job – it’s important to celebrate every win!

If you were an animal, what would you be?
A golden retriever they’re always friendly, and they know how to get the job done!

How would your best friend describe you in 3 words?
Organised, reliable and loving.

How would your colleagues describe you in three words?
Organised, kind and helpful.
