Three things were important for me on starting work after university: Working in the field of transport and mobility, being involved in project management or consulting, and operating internationally, preferably connected with the Middle East. At Dornier, I found precisely the combination I was looking for.
What path have you taken through the company so far?
After graduating with my Master’s degree I was hired as an Associate, before becoming a Consultant about one and a half years later. I wanted to get an idea of various sectors to start with, so I was initially involved in projects in the electromobility, rail and aviation divisions, where I was responsible for a particular focal point of the project or for sub-projects.
Can you tell us a bit about what you do and about your team?
I focus on autonomous driving, innovative mobility solutions, aviation and aerospace, and traffic management, in terms of both organizational consulting (projects relating to strategy development, organizational development, product portfolio management) and innovation consulting (projects dealing with technology evaluation, pilot project planning, business case development). I also give internal training courses in Excel and presentation skills.
Depending on where the project is located, I work either with colleagues from the Berlin office or with others based in the Middle East. Our project teams have a good mix of experienced and younger colleagues, as well as generalists and specialists for various subject areas. Everyone fits in very well in the teams, which is something that can by no means be taken for granted.
