The voice of NextGen
Georgie McCrae, Project Coordinator, Hermes Logistics Technologies
After leaving college aged 17, I joined a telecommunications company as an apprentice in their operations department. I thoroughly enjoyed the ever-advancing world of technology and thrived in my role, moving into a management position after a few years. Since this role, I have worked in various other telecoms companies, from operations to project roles, before finding my way to Hermes.
My first experience working in a project role was as a coordinator for a wireless solutions company. This involved travel across the UK to perform onsite duties and report on progress. Travelling for business has always been something I’ve enjoyed, and I believe that ‘hands-on’ element is one of the things that drew me to Hermes initially.
As Project Coordinator at Hermes, I am involved in all branches of the business, from our upgrade and implementation projects to the initiation of proposals and more. Although I have had experience within project roles in other companies, I was new to the world of air cargo when I joined Hermes in January 2021. Since then, I’ve gained an understanding of the complex industry and have been enjoying expanding my knowledge.
I believe that Hermes is open to young/new talent and sees the potential in developing enthusiastic minds. From my small amount of time in the air cargo sector, I believe that women are becoming more represented in a once male-oriented industry, and it is inspiring to work alongside women doing so.
I still consider myself new in my career in air cargo, but I hope to continue my journey in software project management, whilst I to learn more about the air cargo world.
