Meet Jazmin Hafeez - an insight into her role as mechanical engineer

At Murphy, we believe our people are our greatest asset, which is why they are at the heart of our company and everything we do. This week we caught up with mechanical engineer, Jazmin Hafeez, to talk about her time at Murphy so far.

What is your name and your role title?

Jazmin Hafeez, mechanical engineer in Murphy Applied Engineering (MAE).

Where are you normally based?

I used to be based in the engineering department in Kentish Town, however, our team has since been moved to the main building of the head office.

In a nutshell, what do you do at Murphy?

I work in the Gas, Oil and Process team within MAE, designing and engineering installations such as pipelines and pipework. Basically, lots of maths, physics and chemistry, following codes, specifications, guidelines and drawing pictures, models and animations.

What attracted you to working in the construction industry?

Initally, I wanted to work in a design office, but after I undertook summer work experience at University with a small construction company, I realised that the decisions I wanted to make (and be part of) were largely associated with construction phases. Moreover, some design houses don’t have an attached construction team, so you don’t always get to see the whole picture and be involved in everything.

What advice would you give another female looking to work in the industry?

I don’t believe there’s anything to worry about entering the construction industry as a female. Studying mechanical engineering at University, I was quite accustomed to a working in male dominated environment, which prepared me for this experience.

If you could choose any other role at Murphy what would it be and why?

I would love to try estimating.

What do you enjoy the most about your role? 

The opportunities available to me at Murphy. Being in construction, I get to experience a vast variety of projects than any design house.
