A rewarding challenge for Hannah

“I have worked for Russell Group for 3 years. My main role and responsibilities are to ensure that customer jobs are planned and completed efficiently and effectively while ensuring that all legal compliances are maintained throughout. Gaining experience and obtaining more responsibility is what interested me in the supervisory role.

Ensuring that you keep up with both driver and customer expectations can be challenging. However, the most rewarding part of my job is the problem-solving aspect. Transport is a challenging industry and sometimes I am given a job that isn’t always straightforward but producing the solution is rewarding.”

Hannah Davidson, Transport Supervisor, Carntyne Transport

Graduate Apprenticeship (Cyber Security) 


Drew Munro – The Russell Group (IT)

Role: Graduate Apprenticeship (Cyber Security) 

Drew has always been interested in IT and he was excited by the prospect of doing a Higher National Diploma (HND) – which is equivalent to a foundation degree – and the subsequent career options that would give him in the future.

“My initial apprenticeship (HND) was more helpdesk focused, but since then I’ve begun a graduate apprenticeship which includes a cyber security degree. It means I’m learning the techniques to protect the business from cyber threats.”

Drew has taken advantage of the developmental opportunities of working within logistics, not simply through a qualification relevant to his existing role on the helpdesk, but a following, more advanced, qualification that will enable him to pursue the career that he’s most interested in. 

He describes his job as ‘entertaining, challenging and rewarding’ and he can see exactly how his career with The Russell Group will progress:

“In five years time I see myself qualified with an honour’s degree in cyber security and still part of the IT team here at Russell Group.”
