professions recruiting at the end of 2017

Table of Contents

The signing of contracts in the aviation industry soared at the last Dubai Airshow. Airbus, for example, sold 430 A320 family planes for a whopping 42 billion Pounds. In full resumption of activity, the sector now needs to strengthen its workforce to meet its commitments. This is why 8,000 recruitments have been planned for 2017 *. And 2018 should also be a good year since, according to a study commissioned by the Ipsa ** engineering school, 84% of companies in the sector have planned to recruit senior technicians and 80% plan to hire operators and mechanics.

The technological bachelor, a sought-after diploma

For these profiles, the bulk of future recruitments over the next 12 months will be in companies with more than 200 people. And more particularly in the production, an area directly impacted by recent record contracts which, to keep up with the pace to come, must quickly compensate for its numerous retirements.
Other highly sought-after candidates, holders of technological bachelors are sought after by 63% of companies in the sector. “These three-year training courses, which for example train assistant engineers or production unit managers, have been very successful in SMEs and abroad,” says Francis Pollet, CEO of Ipsa.

Drones, a sector of the future

In the longer term, we must focus on the drone industry, which is booming in agriculture and defense, and still popular with the general public. 53% of aeronautical professionals believe that these flying toys will be the most job-creating technology in the future, ahead of artificial intelligence (42%), electric aircraft (39%) and big data ( 37%).
