    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!
