In short, by grabbing every chance you get. Alongside working on some fascinating, challenging and occasionally jaw-dropping projects, you’ll also be part of our Murphy Learning programme, where everyone has ownership of their own training. You decide what skills you want to gain, with support and guidance from your manager. We call it the 70:20:10 principle, and it goes like this:
learning on the job, challenging yourself with new projects and responsibilities
learning through others, training and networking with senior managers, colleagues and industry leaders
structured learning, choosing training courses that fit your needs and your team’s aims
Offsite welcome where you’ll meet your managers and our CEO
A technical mentor who’s always there for you
Balanced work and study
Studying commences from day one with our help
Personal development plan
Plus the training in how to set it for yourself
Business and soft-skills training
Teaching you everything you need to know to feel confident
Every 6-9 months you’ll move to a different role in your area
Lunch and Learns
Listen to experts from across the business – and outside it
Sharing the wealth of knowledge across our teams
Helping you feel at home – and helping you meet the whole team
Studied over 4-8 years, continuing after the programme ends
Six months working with a charity to solve live problems
STEM ambassador training
Passing your skills onto young minds and learning soft skills
The Corporate Social Responsibility work you’ll do is vital in two ways – first, it helps you live and breathe our values, but second, it helps you firm up your expertise in new ways. You’ll go into schools as a STEM ambassador, for instance, where you’ll teach young students what you know – and boost your leadership and communication skills while you’re at it.
Then there’s our big challenge, set to all of our graduates. You’ll be presented with a live problem related to your role, faced by one of the charities we work with. You’ll have six months to plan your solution, then you’ll present it to a panel of judges – and we’ll carry out the projects we think are viable.
