What is the most interesting part of your job as a Senior Crew Manager???
The thing I enjoy the most about my job is that MSS is truly a global organisation. This means that I work with so many different parts of the world: In the morning, I have meetings with Australia, in the afternoon Canada, Brazil and Mexico – and I need to have an understanding of the regional markets in order to support my team. In addition, working in crew management you have to find the optimal balance between the analytical side, financial side and human side of every decision you make.
If you could give a new employee in Maersk Supply Service a word of advice, what would it be?
If you ever get the chance visit a vessel! It gives you an insight that is invaluable to the work you do, regardless of which department you are in – and really helps you appreciate the work, dedication and effort that goes into life offshore. Make sure you remember PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)!
