    Eve Chin


    I am working on the LOCROS project (Crossrail scheme) to provide step-free access at Hanwell, Langley, Iver and Taplow station. I provide commercial support to my team, which includes subcontract application assessments, project cost control, payment support, measurement of quantities and such.

    I previously worked as summer placement quantity surveyor in Malaysia and for the Murphy Construction and Property team. Each experience at Murphy has been fundamentally different, as each project is unique, and the people involved are also different.

  • Adam Gillmon

    Apprentice Quantity Surveyor

    My name is Adam Gillmon and I’m an Apprentice Quantity Surveyor working in M2 Transportation (Rail). I decided to go down the apprenticeship route rather than full-time University due to the fact that I could gain crucial experience and on the job knowledge whilst also studying for a degree part-time. The tasks that my role involves can vary on a weekly basis, this can include managing the costs hitting a project through to the weekly cost trackers and working with client and subcontract applications.

    I would definitely recommend a career at Murphy - for apprentices and graduates the quality of training Murphy provides is second to none, and you feel part of a team trying to achieve something special.​​​​​​​

    Kay Warhurst

    Assistant project manager

    I joined Murphy as a document controller in 2012 and worked for two years on fixed telecommunications. It was then that I realised I had more of a civil engineering eye than I first thought and that I really wanted to progress within the industry.

    I’d heard good things about Murphy when I applied for the job and one main thing that attracted me to the company was the family ethos. That was something that I sensed as soon as a stepped into my interview. It turns out it’s been the best move I’ve ever made!
