The aeronautical company Airbus has announced in a note that it plans to hire more than 13,000 people worldwide during 2023 and approximately 7,000 of them will be newly created jobs in the company. The multinational has indicated that the new hires will be “essential” to strengthen its industrial acceleration and Airbus’s “ambitious” decarbonization roadmap, as well as to prepare the future of aviation.
In the past year the company hired 13,000 new workers, explained Thierry Baril, director of Human Resources and Workplace at Airbus. The manufacturer currently has more than 130,000 employees in all its international activities.
This new recruitment campaign will be global and will place special emphasis on technical and manufacturing profiles, as well as the acquisition of new skills that support the company’s long-term vision, in areas such as new energies, cyber, and cyber. However, more than 9,000 of these positions will be in Europe and the rest throughout its global network. In addition, a third of the total recruitment will go to recent graduates.
Start-up of the new logistics platform
The logistics platform that is being built next to the helicopter plant that Airbus has in Albacete will start up in the summer and will centralize all the parts that will later be used in the assembly plants that the European aeronautical manufacturer has all over the world. “We will open the logistics facilities in Albacete in mid-2023”
The works of this logistics center that will be managed by the Daher group and in which “more than 300 direct jobs” are expected to be created must be completed in spring for its gradual entry into service during the summer, indicating sources from the aeronautical giant. Airbus’s objective for these facilities, which occupy 50,000 square meters, is to “simplify the logistics flow” from external suppliers, who found their parts there to then be able to transport them within tight deadlines to the different plants where the assembly is carried out. helicopters.
