There’s something just a little bit marvellous about Murphy. Once you get to know us, we’re sure you’ll think so too. So what are we really like? Below, you’ll find out all about our business: who we are, what we do, what we stand for.
Murphy – or J. Murphy & Sons Limited, to give us our full name – was founded in 1951 by construction entrepreneur John Murphy. Almost 70 years later, Murphy is a leading engineering and construction company, working round the globe to deliver world-class infrastructure that improves lives.
There are lots of things. Our values. The exciting work we do. The bees we keep at our head office. But one key way we’re different is the way we do everything in house. What do we mean by that? Well, where other companies might plan a project then hire someone else’s builders, we have all the skilled colleagues we need to see our work through from start to finish.
After all, there are now more than 3,000 of us – engineers, professionals, and skilled operatives – at work across the United Kingdom, Ireland and Canada. And you might just be the next to join our family.
Since 1951, we’ve held the same values in everything we do, so naturally, we look for them in our new starters too. Can you relate to these?
We look after people, their communities and the planet – no matter what
A ‘can do’ attitude delivers high quality projects on time and on budget
Collaborative working gives our clients a seamless, integrated service
Innovation is integral to our success
Transparent, honest and professional – we act with integrity, embrace diversity and our stakeholders trust us
Speaking of diversity, we’re all one family here – and that means we celebrate colleagues of all backgrounds and cultures. From a small family firm, we’re growing to become a global business that reflects our world - and as we grow, so do our employee support networks.
One example is Murphy Pride: whose goal is to raise the profile of LGBT+ issues, providing support, education, and helping colleagues better support each other. We even recently became one of the only construction and engineering firms to take part in Pride in London 2018, with a rainbow HGV in the parade.
As influencers in the construction and engineering industries, it’s our duty to make sure we go above and beyond in sustainable and eco-friendly processes, including:
