We caught up with Liam Twomey, Fabrication Apprentice in our Hemel Plant Depot, to find out more about his role.
I wanted to learn a trade and had an interest in mechanics and welding. When I came for the interview I was impressed by the new facilities in Hemel and especially the new fabrication workshop. I know people that work at Murphy and knew they had a good history and training.
My role at the moment is shadowing the other fabricators – Vince and Enda – and learning about the role and different welding techniques. I have progressed onto building up augers to the correct diameter and size which then go on to Murphy Ground Engineering projects.
Learning to use the welding sets and the different welding techniques.
That we get to build items from scratch and have worked on all different items to support our projects.
Playing PlayStation and spending time at home with my family – I have 3 brothers.
Before I became a welding apprentice I wanted to be a DJ!
