European aerospace and defense giant is planning to hold a recruitment fair at Aero India 2015 in Bangalore.
Airbus will be looking for ‘experienced aviation engineers’ at its pavilion on the last two days of the air show.
This is the first time the company has held a recruitment fair at the air show and Suraj Chettri, Head of HR, Airbus Group, India, told StratPost, “Indian engineers are highly regarded in the world and we are keen to integrate them in our global technology and engineering organization. That’s why we have two engineering centers – one focused on civil aviation and the other on defence – and a R&T facility in Bengaluru.”
Airbus also expects the jobs mela to simultaneously promote the Make in India initiative of the Indian government. “We are always looking for bright talent to augment our teams here and increase our capacity to design, develop and engineer in India which ties up very well with the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Indian Government,” said Chettri, adding, “This is the reason why we are organizing a recruitment fair on the public days during Aero India.”
In an example of the company’s move towards ‘Make in India’ Airbus has just announced an agreement with Bangalore-based Dynamatic Technologies for the single source supply of flap-track beams for the wide body A330 Family aircraft, in what is the largest manufacturing contract between Airbus and an Indian private sector company.
This would also make Dynamatic a global tier-1 supplier to Airbus.
“We have open positions in Avionics, Structural Analysis and Repair Approvals and are looking for experienced aviation engineers with post-graduation or more to fill them,” said Chettri.
Airbus HR representatives from the company will be available at the fair to meet interested candidates, review their CVs and guide them on the selection process on February 21-22, 2015.
