Working at Murphy Surveys has broadened my skill set and helped me progress my career. Due to the various specialised services offered by Murphy Surveys, I have worked on many interesting and unique projects using the most up to date technology. I have also been supported in furthering my education and training.
JP Kelly, Project Manager
Working at Murphy Surveys has helped me learn so much! From being Assistant Surveyor to CAD Technician, where I learned new software and progressed to Processing Manager for one of the contracts. It’s great that I earn experience in many fields of surveying.
