(PRESS RELEASE) TOULOUSE, 19-Jan-2022 — /EuropaWire/ — Airbus (EPA: AIR), a European multinational aerospace corporation, has announced a massive recruitment plan across its entire group for 2022 in support of its preparation for the future of aviation and the implementation of its roadmap for decarbonisation. The aerospace company plans to hire 6000 new employees this year as it sees strong signs of post-COVID recovery across the aerospace industry.
“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”, said Thierry Baril, Airbus Chief Human Resources & Workplace Officer.
“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.”
About a quarter of the planned recruitments should focus on acquiring the new skills to support the Company’s long-term projects and ambition, notably in the fields of decarbonisation, digital transformation and cyber technology. A third of the total recruitment will be allocated to young graduates.
