A varied and international sector

Aviation in general covers all aeronautic activities, from civil to commercial. When you talk about aeronautics, you can talk about sport aviation, but you also being referring about civil aviation (tourism), as well as air work. Aeronautics also includes all sciences and technologies that make things flying in the Earth’s atmosphere. To these activities, you can also add aerospace activities.

Furthermore, it is important to mention that aviation is an international sector. The main reason we created aircrafts was to connect countries and people, in order to travel easily, and to discover other habits, other landscapes, build international partnerships, etc. Plus, the main language used in the sector is English, to make sure that everybody understand each other. This might be the only activity that makes everyone see eye to eye. Let’s not forget to mention that globalization has always helped aviation, and this is why the sector keeps on attracting new blood and why it offers so many job opportunities.

A large number of job offers

No one can deny that aeronautics attract talented jobseekers. And as we said before, air traffic continues to rise. That is why the sector had a huge demand in workforce, from the simple machinist to the biggest engineer. It is true that the job opportunities generally come from the biggest companies in aviation and aerospace. But the little companies also need to recruit, and candidates seem to forget them, especially because the most job offers are in production and manufacturing. So that shows that aviation is a “runway” for work and employment.

  1. Hi Anne-Marie

    Would you be able to advise me on how or what is best way to find big name airliners that would be looking for a recruitment agent to assist them in their aviation needs.

    Any advice would greatly be appreciated

    1. Write to the airlines directly if there are some you want to work for! And otherwise, look through the job offers on the different job boards listed.
