Meet Kieran McCaffrey - an insight into his role as operational support

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 support operative, Kieran McCaffrey, to talk about his time at Murphy so far.

What is your name and your role title?

Kieran McCaffrey, currently working as Operational Support on Lead Pipe Replacement for the Murphy/ Morrison Joint venture Agility.  I am based in Kentish Town where we cover works being delivered across London.

In a nutshell, what do you do at Murphy?

After completing my apprenticeship, I was given a great opportunity to work closely with key operational members of the team to allow me to develop and progress. I am responsible for managing the operational training matrix, which ranges from booking required courses, maintaining the matrix and feeding into operational meetings. I am developing a compliance report to manage usage of service avoidance equipment, whereby I can then identify key areas to develop further with operatives. I also analyse return information from our site teams to highlight positives and negatives to the management team. Within my role, I provide a key link between site and management, all of which has provided me an insight into operational management.

What do you find most interesting about your role?

Being an integral member of the team whereby I am able to not only optimise my learning curve but also work closely with management and be a part of the decision making process.

What are your career aspirations?

My aspiration would be to continue to learn from my operational leads and continue to develop my training and knowledge. Currently I am working towards becoming an Area Site Agent with a long term goal of Construction Manager. I know I can set my goals as high as I’d like to as Murphy have already made opportunities available to me. I believe there is always a chance to learn and grow.

What was the highlight of completing your apprenticeship with Murphy Group?

Successfully completing the apprenticeship and coming away with a CABWI Level 2 Diploma in water engineering. Another highlight was working with and meeting some great people around the business.
