Airbus to recruit over 13,000 employees in 2023 in the world
The company progresses on target; a third of the total to recent graduates
Airbus is calling on aerospace enthusiasts to join a growing sector as it looks to recruit more than 13,000 people across the globe in 2023. To date, more than 7,000 of those positions have been filled despite a challenging labour market.
Plans are already well underway to fill the remaining positions with new hires being instrumental in supporting Airbus’ production ramp-up and decarbonisation ambitions.
The Company is offering thousands of job opportunities in manufacturing, engineering and activities supporting Airbus' long term objectives like cybersecurity, software engineering and new propulsion technologies (hydrogen, cryogenics, fuel cells).
A third of the total recruitment will be allocated to recent graduates. With this ambition, Airbus has just signed an extension of its partnership with Georgia Institute of Technology for another 5 years, in the frame of the Airbus Academic Program (with selected Top 15 Universities and Schools worldwide).
In 2023, on top of this strategic program, Airbus expanded its academic partnerships with 42 business schools and universities worldwide, through agreements with CEMS (a consortium of 34 business schools and universities in 6 continents) and UNITECH (a consortium of 8 engineering universities across Europe: Sweden, Lyon, Politecnico di Milano, Dublin, Aachen RTWH, Zurich, Loughborough and University Polytechnic Barcelona). These partnerships will foster potential synergies in the aeronautical sector that will help develop the next generation of aerospace professionals.
The company currently employs more than 134,000 people across its businesses worldwide.
