In contrast to the recent string of mass layoffs in multiple companies, Airbus intends to recruit more than 13,000 people globally in 2023.

This Airplane Manufacturer Will Hire 13,000 Employees In Next 12 Months!

Going against the grain

It has been a brutal period for the private sector, particularly the IT one.

The second half of 2022 saw companies laying off thousands of employees as they braced to cut costs amid recession fears.

This continued well into the new year 2023.

As many as 67,268 employees have been sacked this January alone.

Now Airbus is looking to hire in a complex environment which tested “our resilience and attractiveness as a global employer.”

Opportunity for layoff victims

Following the success of the recruitment last year, Airbus will hire over 13,000 employees again in 2023, said Thierry Baril, Chief Human Resources and Workplace Officer.

This creates a perfect opportunity for tech industry workers who were let go as part of an industry wide downsizing drive.

Why? This is because Airbus might onboard some workers laid off by technology giants, especially if they have the skill sets in areas the company is trying to develop.

Skills sought

The recruitment drive will take place globally, focusing on technical and manufacturing profiles, as well as acquiring new skills in areas such as new energies, cyber and digital.

In addition to supporting its commercial aircraft ramp-up, the new hires will help meet defence, space, and helicopter challenges.

Key profiles sought by Airbus for its hiring drive are: 

  • Digital and cyber (cyber security, robotics, software engineering, cloud computing)
  • Engineering and manufacturing engineering (new energies, hydrogen, aircraft design)
  • Customer services (customer engineering, technical, and material support/services, maintenance technicians)

Work location

Around 7,000 of these jobs will be newly created, with most of the new positions located in Europe, with the rest spread across the firm’s global network.

Over 9,000 of the total posts will be in Europe, and the rest throughout our global network.

Plan for freshers hired

A third of the total recruitment will be allocated to recent graduates.

For these particular hires Airbus “plans to evolve future senior functional and business leaders through technical and leadership development, networking and exposure to top management”.

The new hires will be the key to support the company’s industrial ramp-up and ambitious decarbonisation roadmap and preparing the future of aviation.
