We caught up with Liam Twomey, Fabrication Apprentice in our Hemel Plant Depot, to find out more about his role.

What made you do an apprenticeship?

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.

What does your role involve?

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.

What has been your biggest challenge at Murphy?

Learning to use the welding sets and the different welding techniques.

What do you love about your role?

That we get to build items from scratch and have worked on all different items to support our projects.

How have you been keeping entertained during lockdown/s?

Playing PlayStation and spending time at home with my family – I have 3 brothers.

Tell us a funny fact about yourself...

Before I became a welding apprentice I wanted to be a DJ!
