Routes Into Murphy

What comes to mind when you hear the word construction?

One of the greatest challenges as a company under the construction and engineering banner is finding a way to best portray the wider opportunities within the industry. Yes we employ administrators, yes we employ accountants and yes we do build things. We are a multi-discipline organisation and our on-going mission is to increase awareness across all industries to really exhibit what a rewarding career you could have within construction and engineering.

We are proud to recruit an attractive number of graduates, undergraduates and apprentices across the UK business on an annual basis. This number has increased continuously, and as long as the talent keeps emerging, we will keep recruiting.

Innovative. Bright. Unique. Diverse. Creative.

Over the past two years the recruitment and learning and development teams have collectively agreed an agenda that with the support of the wider business should help us do our bit to bridge the skills gap evident across the construction and engineering industries. We are focussed on meeting university students across the UK and Ireland, increasing their awareness of Murphy and also creating stronger relationships with universities so we are in the best position to support talent coming in to the industry.



There’s a simple philosophy here at Murphy: big ideas take more than just a team of one. We look for people who are inventive, have a passion for learning and want to transform the world around them.
