Some 200 employees showed off their dance moves
Airbus employees gathered on the tarmac on Friday’s public opening day of the International Paris Air Show - Le Bourget to dance to “Higher” by Taio Cruz .
At the air show, which is well known for aerial displays, it was the moves of the Airbus employees that took centre stage this time. The performance involved a range of volunteers from all over Airbus, who took onlookers by surprise by suddenly breaking into dance. After the performance, the spinning dancers dispersed back into the crowd.
Airbus plans to recruit more than 3,000 talented individuals from all over the world this year and offers more than 2,500 internships at locations worldwide. In the words of Taio Cruz, this is truly an opportunity to take a career “higher off the ground”.
From 20-25 June, a series of forums and workshops at the Air Show gives job seekers a wide range of opportunities to discuss their future career paths with Airbus HR professionals, engineers and business experts. These are job opportunities created by the backlog of more than 6 years production work as well as aircraft developments such as the A320neo and the A350 XWB.
Hitting the right note for the Airbus recruitment drive are key competencies such as structure and systems engineering, and Lean Management. Opportunities are also available in procurement, finance, human resources, strategy, marketing and sales for graduates from business schools and universities as well as experienced professionals.
Airbus is the leading aircraft manufacturer offering the most modern, comprehensive and efficient passenger aircraft family on the more than 100-seat market, while its military division is the global leader for transport, tanker and surveillance airlifters ranging from three to 45 tonnes of payload.
