Airbus will once again showcase job and career opportunities for talent (graduates and experienced professionals) at the Farnborough International Airshow in the UK.

From July 9th to 15th, a series of forums and workshops will provide the opportunity for job seekers to discuss their possible future career opportunities with Airbus engineers, human resources and business experts.

Throughout the week, workshop participants will have the opportunity to explore the world of structural engineering and its challenges, to learn more about the A320neo, the A350 XWB and how these aircraft are shaping the future of air travel. They will see how Airbus is innovating for a sustainable future for aviation. In addition, there will be a special workshop where participants will learn that engineering it is not just for boys.

Also on Thursday, a surprise performance will take place at midday in the static display area, involving several hundred employees to demonstrate Airbus’ and the EADS Group’s richness of talent. Please join us !

Friday’s Futures Day is dedicated to the next generation of talents which will help shape the industry. On this occasion, Airbus will host mini-conferences to inspire and engage with young people from several school groups and ask what they expect from the future of flight.

There will also be an expert panel to discuss the importance of innovation and the need to inspire and nurture the right talent, with Airbus’ Fly Your Ideas student challenge, a blueprint for how industry and academia can work together. Registration is open for Airbus third challenge (backed by UNESCO) which starts in September 2012.

Airbus’ commitment to professional development, fostering cultural exchange, innovation and diversity is at the heart of the company’s philosophy and will be reflected in all human resources activities during the Farnborough week.

This year alone, Airbus will recruit some 4,000 experienced professionals as well as new graduates, and will offer 3,000 internships at its worldwide sites. With 5,500 internal movements this year, Airbus gives its employees real prospects for career development all around the world.
