Airbus plans to hire 3.500 workers in Germany this year.

About 1.900 of them will be needed in civil aircraft construction, while 1.100 will work in the military and space sectors and about 500 in the helicopter plant. As Marco Wagner, Labor Director of the Group, explained, electricians, mechanics and cabin outfitters are particularly in demand. But IT specialists, cyber security experts and developers of fuel cells and hybrid drive systems are also in demand. In addition, a third of the positions are reserved for women, as reported by the online portal Aero.

The Hamburg site is said to have around 1.300 external hires, while the Donauwörth and Manching sites each have around 500 and Ottobrunn 300 positions. 250 women and men are to be hired in Nordenham, 130 in Friedrichshafen/Immenstadt and 100 each in Bremen and Stade. Around 20 percent of the new employees are to be involved in future-oriented topics. Wagner mentioned decarbonization, digital transformation, software development and cyber technologies. A third of all positions are intended for young professionals and another third for women. So far, the proportion of female employees is 20 percent.
