Oisín Campbell is a Graduate Engineer / Civil Engineer based at Co. Kildare. He has been with Murphy Ireland for just over two years.

What do you do at Murphy?

Currently I am working as a quality engineer. I have just completed the two year graduate programme.

What do you like most about your role?

I like that no two days are the same, preparation of works for the following week are always varying. I like the responsibility that comes with my role in the preparation of the work completion packages for handover to the client, along with quality inspections of the tasks taking place on site. Seeing the progression of a project is a very rewarding feeling, seeing the results motivates me to continue to push myself and the team to achieve the best product possible for the client and for ourselves. I also like that my career has evolved and changes with each new task on site, and across the multiple projects that I have worked on, over several sectors that Murphy Ireland are a part of.

What has been your biggest challenge at Murphy?

Adjusting to the steep learning curve of a new project in a new sector.

What attracted you to the construction industry?

Construction was appealing to me as it offered both the opportunity to work in an office and on site.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Seeing the results of your work as a project progress gives me great motivation to continue my work. Being able to see improvements in your own work and your teams.

What is your proudest achievement?

Getting the chance to work as an engineer with Murphy Ireland straight out of college.

What are your career aspirations? 

I would like to continue in my current role before progressing to the position of senior engineer. Someday I aspire to be a project manager on a large scale and interesting project.

On a typical weekend, what can we expect you to be doing?

Chasing waves all around the country to wherever the waves are best, that’s where you’ll find me.

Tell us a funny/interesting fact about yourself...

This year I have qualified for the Irish Surfing Team following competitions in 2019/2020 and I will be travelling to the World Surf Games/Olympic Qualifiers in El Salvador in May/June. I am a second-generation surfer; my father and uncle are both surfers. They only began surfing in their 20’s and 30’s and continue to surf to this day. It is never too late to try and have fun…
