Metal manufacturers serving the aerospace industry should keep a close eye on Airbus. The company seems poised for a growth spurt, if its immediate hiring plans are any indication.
Airbus says it intends to hire 13,000 people globally this year to “support its commercial aircraft ramp-up, meet challenges in defence, space and helicopters.” Around 7,000 of these will be newly created posts across the company.
“The new hires will be instrumental in supporting our industrial ramp-up and Airbus’ ambitious decarbonisation roadmap and preparing the future of aviation,” the company said in a release.
The new hires follow on the heels of another 13,000 new employees add to the global Airbus team in 2022.
This new recruitment drive will be worldwide, with emphasis on technical and manufacturing profiles, as well as acquisition of new skills supporting the company’s long term vision, in areas such as new energies, cyber and digital.
Airbus currently employs more than 130,000 people across its businesses worldwide.
