Airbus steps up hiring in 2023, opens-up 13000 new job opportunities
More than 13,000 people to be hired by the company worldwide in 2023
European airframer Airbus says it plans to take on more than 13,000 news hired globally this year, as it seeks to ramp-up its commercial aircraft output and meet challenges in its defence, space and helicopters divisions. Around 7,000 of these will be newly created posts across the company. The company says “the new hires will be instrumental in supporting our industrial ramp-up and Airbus’ ambitious decarbonisation roadmap and preparing the future of aviation.
“In 2022 we welcomed more than 13,000 new employees within Team Airbus around the world, in a complex environment which tested our resilience and attractiveness as a global employer.” said Thierry Baril, Chief Human Resources & Workplace Officer of Airbus. “Following the success of our recruitment last year, we will hire over 13,000 employees again in 2023. We call on talented individuals from all over the world to join us in our journey to make sustainable aerospace a reality and to help us build a better, more diverse and inclusive workplace for all our employees.”
The 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.
Over 9,000 of these posts will be in Europe, and the rest throughout the company’s global network with a third of the total recruitment allocated to recent graduates.
Airbus currently employs more than 130,000 people across its businesses worldwide. Airbus was recently awarded Top Employers certification in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific by the Top Employers Institute, a global independent authority on recognising excellence in people management and HR policies.
