What is your name and job title?

My name is Gemma Langford and I am an estimator in the Murphy Cannock office.

In a nutshell, what do you do?

I work with the Utility Connections team and produce multi-utility quotations for domestic and commercial properties. I've worked in the multi-utilities industry for over 15 years, with most of my life in a regulated corporate environment. I believe I have a great understanding of the bigger picture and business objectives.

No job is the same at Murphy, and can vary day to day dependent upon the client’s needs and expectations. I love a busy environment with the great support from my peers. One day, I'd love to be a fully pledged MU design engineer.

I started my career not only in estimating, but also designing and training in the distribution and transmission of electricity. I hold an SG2 Gas Design qualification enabling me to design LP Gas Networks. I'm currently studying for her SG3 for complex Gas Design (GIRS), along with a CABWI Diploma in Water Design.

What advice would you give for anyone looking to be in your role?

To have a can do positive attitude, great problem solving skills, work well under pressure, and can think outside the box.
