Ellen Barrett: ellen barrett

Ellen Barrett is a SHES Manager and the longest serving woman working at Murphy since 1999.

What was your first role at Murphy?
Plant and Transport admin assistant at the Dinnington Depot, North East region.

What do you enjoy about your role?
The versatility of the role during the last 20 something years. All projects have different challenges, from general site conditions and welfare to building a ship to shore gas terminal into the River Tees. I have worked in a wide variety of sectors during my time with Murphy and have met some amazing people who I have learned a lot from.

What advice do you have for someone considering a role in SHES?
It may sound obvious but make sure that you are interested in the topic. Speak to people who are already in the role and find out what it entails. Other than that – never stop listening to the people you work with and never stop learning from them.
