Murphy people

  • Keith Trowers

    Senior business development manager for Construction & Property

    There are many aspects to my role, but the absolute priority (as the job title suggests) is to develop and manage new business opportunities.

    New opportunities can be identified in a number of ways. This includes market research through planning portals and the internet, but some opportunities, such as Local Authority and Housing Association projects, are advertised to the wider construction market through OJEU notices. I review these notices on a daily basis to identify which may be suitable for us.

    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!

    Site manager

    My favourite project is Farnworth Tunnel, which I worked on in 2015. We had challenges, as projects often do, but there was this intense one team spirit.

    I enjoy that no two days are ever the same, from doing tender reviews for major subcontracts, to large concrete pours, third party audits, and even standing in an empty field with one drawing, envisioning how we are going to deliver for our client.

    Senior contracts manager

    I work for Murphy Process Engineering Limited, assisting the project management team to plan, procure, resource and execute our projects on time, on cost and on quality. I am based at our Citywest office, only a 45-minute journey from Dublin City Centre.  

    I enjoy applying lessons learned from previous experience, working with very clever people and encouraging graduate engineers to find their voice.

    Group head of innovation

    I lead Murphy's innovation capability. This means developing and deploying the strategy to find new ways of working, new technologies and what's new in our industry. This will help make sure that our teams are in touch with the latest thinking and opportunities, as well as a bit of a future gazing.

    It's really about making sure we are fit for the future and achieve our growth plans. My role is also about empowering our employees to speak up and share their ideas and knowledge. I get to meet a broad number of people, from board level to site employees. Every day is different, and busy as well as educational.
