Anja Brandt began her career in her hometown with the Elmshorn volleyball community . In 2006 she joined the junior team at VC Olympia Berlin , with whom she initially played in the second division , and since 2007 also in the first division. The middle blocker became world champion in Mexico in 2009 with the national junior team .

Brandt is also regularly represented in the Champions League with the Schwerin women and was even able to reach the playoffs with the club in the 2012/13 season .

At the beginning of the 2013/14 season , Brandt had to undergo serious shoulder surgery. As a result of this operation, she was sidelined for the entire season due to injury. In December 2016, Brandt fell seriously ill again. The SSC then signed the American Hannah Tapp as a replacement. The disease did not allow a return to the 2017/18 season.
