Rebekah Lee case study


“Morson show such willingness to understand our briefs, down to the finest detail, and advise us correctly on how to approach our varying recruitment needs. Since working together, we’ve welcomed higher quality candidates into our ranks, have a streamlined process and have made major time and cost savings.” - Ian Holcroft, procurement director for Murphy

Continually in need of the industry’s most skilled labour to support its own teams and meet sophisticated specifications for projects across rail, energy, natural resources and other sectors, J Murphy and Sons required greater control over its contractor workforce to achieve costs savings and improved governance. Having never had a dedicated contingent recruitment partner in place and regularly spending millions of pounds a year on hiring, it went out to tender to source an expert that could create a more efficient strategy.

In our case study with Murphy we cover:

  • Process overhaul - With extensive experience in engineering, construction, rail, highways, and other technical industries, Morson Talent acts at a strategic level to understand a business’ overarching objectives so that it can deliver suitable skillsets from a talent perspective.

  • Tangible success - Over the last two years, the partnership has prospered to the extent Morson’s recruitment provision has contributed to Murphy’s delivery, growth and success in the market.

  • Murphy's future needs - Originally appointing Morson on a two-year contract, Murphy has recently extended its partnership to further leverage the success of the strategic relationship, generate continued cost savings and seek ongoing support concerning future regulatory hurdles.
