Construction Enquirer Engineering contractor will support Ukrainian recruits with a buddy system and language support

J. Murphy & Sons is looking to offer up to 175 Ukrainian refugees employment opportunities across a variety of roles.

The firm is working with the Home Office to offer positions across a range of jobs to help support a broad cross-section of the Ukrainian community that is relocating to the UK.

The roles include onsite, operative jobs and functional roles in areas such as finance, and skilled opportunities within the group’s engineering, commercial and operations activities.

John Murphy, CEO at Murphy, said that the firm would offer practical assistance to Ukrainians, helping with language barriers, housing searches, and informal mentoring.

Murphy will partner new recruits with current Murphy employees who have Ukraine or other Eastern European locations as their country of origin as part of a ‘buddy system’.

“This is an opportunity to offer meaningful employment to those Ukrainians looking for work in the UK, as well as helping them and their families adapt to life here. We are looking forward to welcoming new colleagues from Ukraine to the Murphy family.”

Dawn Moore, group people director at Murphy, said: “We are a growing business with a number of opportunities, and we want to do whatever we can to support those impacted by the current situation in Ukraine.

“It’s also no surprise that many of our Ukrainian, Polish and other Eastern European Murphy people have volunteered to help these prospective new joiners, which is a fantastic show of support.”

Murphy Ukrainian volunteer mentor, Inas Almnasra, added: “I was born in Ukraine and lived there until I was five, and have worked with Murphy for the past three years, so I am really looking forward to helping our Ukrainian colleagues to find their feet and get settled in the UK.

“The war in Ukraine is causing untold heartache for families; I’m incredibly proud that Murphy as a business is committed to helping people who are in such desperate need.”
