I'm Matt Paget, Senior Procurement Manager for the M2 Transportation Business Unit and I’ve been with Murphy for three years. I lead a team of 12 subcontract and material buyers supporting all of our schemes throughout the UK.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST REWARD OF YOUR JOB?

The biggest reward for me is the development of our people, helping individuals to grow and develop within their roles at Murphy is one of my key drivers. We strive to be self-sufficient in our recruitment and to grow from within recruiting interns and graduates selected through our various education programmes.

WHY DO YOU LIKE WORKING AT MURPHY?
I really enjoy our approach to business growth and continual improvement, also without being too cliché our people are also one of our strongest assets, the variety of people and personalities within our business ensures that there is never a dull day.

WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT? 
The two standout moments for me are the development and rollout of the Procurement Development Group and personally my successful completion of the 2021 Future Leaders Programme.

ON A TYPICAL WEEKEND, WHAT CAN WE EXPECT YOU TO BE DOING?
On a typical weekend you would find me taxiing my son around the north west to his various rugby league games, when not in my car I'd be walking the dog or watching all kinds of sport on the TV.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR MOST MEMORABLE HOLIDAY?
I’ve been lucky enough to go on a few nice holidays, but the most memorable periods overseas for me were the 3 years that I spent in the middle east, and the two years in the South Atlantic (Falklands), two very different places and climates but some amazing memories for me and my family.
