Graduate construction manager
My name is Jonathan Brown and I'm a graduate construction manager working at Kentish Town in London. I sat in a presentation given by Murphy to our 4th year Construction Management class in CIT (Cork Institute of Technology) last February.
I was very interested in the business and their graduate programme. After a successful interview, I joined the Murphy Graduate Programme last September as a Graduate Construction Manager in the infrastructure business unit.
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!
I work on the CP6 framework looking after Health and Safety Matters but am predominantly driving the sustainability and environmental aspects of the work. I identify environmental risks and then try to find solutions which will help us deliver world-class infrastructure works whilst ensuring we fulfil our Never Harm value.
I really enjoy sharing what I know, and learning from other people. Quite often we take for granted the experiences we have had, they seem the norm but that’s only the case if everyone has had the same experiences as you.
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.
What I enjoy most is or enabling others to improve how we go to work. Spending a lot of time working with people is really rewarding, and I take a lot of joy in empowering innovators across the business to send in their ideas and take them from a dream to a reality, no matter what the idea is.
