As Airbus seeks new talent for the future, the Group will hire around 6,000 new team members during the first part of 2022. With the aerospace industry showing strong signs of post-pandemic recovery, Airbus continues to implement their decarbonization roadmap.
On Wednesday (January 19, 2022), Airbus announced their intention to hire 6,000 new team members across the entire Group during the first part of 2022, as the aerospace industry shows strong signs of a post COVID-19 pandemic recovery. The new talent will allow the aerospace giant to continue preparing for the future of aviation, while implementing their roadmap for decarbonization. Around a quarter of the planned recruitments will focus on acquiring the new skills to support the company’s long-term projects, especially decarbonization, digital transformation and cyber technology. One-third of the total recruitment will be allocated to young graduates.
In Wednesday’s announcement, Airbus’ Chief Human Resources & Workplace Officer, Thierry Baril, said,
“Airbus has demonstrated resilience throughout the COVID crisis, and has laid the foundations for a bold future for sustainable aviation. This can only be achieved by acquiring the right talents in the various domains of expertise that will help us grow our activities as we come out of the crisis, while preparing the long-term transformation of the Company.
“Following this initial wave of recruitment, which will take place worldwide and across all our businesses, the number of external hires will be reassessed before mid-year 2022 and we will adjust our needs accordingly. Not only will we look at acquiring the new skills that Airbus needs in the post-COVID world, but we will also do our utmost to reinforce diversity across the Company, fostering a safe and inclusive culture reinforcing Team Airbus to be ready to pioneer sustainable aerospace.”
