I like getting involved in the early stages of fabrication and helping out as best I can. Each day brings a new challenge as every day is different. I enjoy reading the drawings and marking out under watchful eyes and seeing the work come together as a completed piece.
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.
In my role, I am responsible for directing and organising the operations and maintenance activities of the waste water treatment works under my remit, as per the Project Management System and contract specifications for each site.
The role involves everything from team development, health and safety, budget requirements for plant maintenance, arranging service contracts, attending client liaison meetings, preparing technical reports, third party and in-house audits to making a good cup of tea!
My role is very hands on where I am constantly learning new and different skills from all of my team members. One thing I like about my job is the different types of work and challenges I come across on a day to day basis which makes life interesting.
Working in the rail sector faces a series of challenges which can involve working on a live track and in close proximity to the general public. All of which I discovered whilst completing recent improvement works at Longbridge train station in Birmingham.
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!
