Diana Franculescu

Consultant Psychologist and Decision Profile Developer

Diana is the latest addition to the Decision Profile and Thompson Dunn teams, joining in July 2018 as an Assistant Psychologist.

The desire to work in Occupational Psychology stemmed from her undergraduate years studying Psychology at University College London where she endeavoured to explore psychological theories and their presence in the workplace. Diana’s dissertation entitled “Personality and Occupational Behaviour: The relationship between employees’ performance, demographical information, personality and absenteeism” confirmed and intrigued her to make further investigations. Diana enriched her knowledge by completing a Level 5 Diploma in HR Management and continued to practice occupational concepts and principles whilst studying for an MSc in Occupational Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Before arriving at Thompson Dunn, Diana has worked in the private, public and voluntary sector, thus developing her understating of how business success is impacted in each environment by employees’ sense of engagement, potential and professional development within the company and how each institution adjusts goals and strategies to suit their current market.

She works closely with Pat Thompson and Michael Johnson to deliver comprehensive developmental and recruitment assessments to clients globally and to assist in the continuous development of the Decision Profile.

Diana is a graduate member of the British Psychological Society, a Certified Occupational Test User and an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
