Airbus – Why Work With Us?


why-airbusgroup-intro-LARGE

Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2019, it generated revenues of € 70 billion and employed a workforce of around 135,000. Airbus offers the most comprehensive range of passenger airliners. Airbus is also a European leader providing tanker, combat, transport and mission aircraft, as well as one of the world’s leading space companies. In helicopters, Airbus provides the most efficient civil and military rotorcraft solutions worldwide. 

3 Divisions, 1 brand

Airbus is made up of three divisions, all leaders in their fields:

  • Airbus: More than 6,000 Airbus aircraft are currently in operation, and Airbus consistently captures approximately half of all commercial airliner orders.
  • Airbus Defence and Space provides tanker, combat, transport and mission aircraft as well as space systems, equipment and services.
  • Airbus Helicopters is the world’s leading helicopter manufacturer offering the most comprehensive range of civil and military helicopters in the world.

Combining European heritage with global outreach, the diversity of our talent and technology drives innovation, integration and internationalisation.

The six core values that guide the behaviours of Airbus employees around the world.

At Airbus, how we work is just as important as what we produce. We are guided by a set of six values, each chosen by the very people who embody them. 

Customer focus, integrity, respect, creativity, reliability and teamwork. These values shape the DNA of our business, reflecting the unique blend of qualities found in every member of our global family.

 

At Airbus, we take pride in the diversity of our employees, valuing the special experience and expertise that people from different backgrounds bring to our business. We thrive on the mix of ideas, backgrounds and knowledge created by such a combination of influences. At the same time, we encourage employees to develop their individual talents and experiences and to be proud of their roots.

 

Creating breakthrough technologies

The ability to develop groundbreaking technologies is one of our key assets, and our people make it happen.

Investing in innovation

innovation-SMALL

To maintain our position as a global leader, Airbus is committed to cultivating a culture of innovation. We spend over €3 billion annually on research and development. We hold approximately 37,000 patents worldwide. Over 1,000 scientists and researchers, including doctorates and interns, work at our facilities in France, Germany, UK, Spain, USA, Canada, Singapore, India and China.

Innovation takes many forms at Airbus, from early-stage research to product development, from cyber-security to enhancing existing platforms, manufacturing processes and quality.

We are always looking for people who are capable of improving the solutions we develop and inventing new solutions to meet the complex challenges of living in a more secure and sustainable world.

 

Be part of the team

The diversity of our talent drives innovation at Airbus, while inclusion is how we make sure everyone is a full-fledged member of team.

Airbus is only the success it is today because we have embraced diversity and worked together across cultures to develop our innovative products. Our workforce already spans four generations with more than 130 nationalities and over 20 languages spoken. Historically our headquarters and main manufacturing sites are based in Europe, however we also operate on a global scale. We strive to mirror the diversity of our customers and suppliers and endeavour that 20 percent of our workforce will come from outside Europe. Maintaining an inclusive working environment is key to the success and sustainability of our company.

Company wide, our diversity and inclusion networks manage topics such as work life balance, career development, integration of disabled employees and furthering gender balance. We also work proactively alongside a number of organisations to support our initiatives and best practice in order to create an inclusive working environment.

We are particularly committed to advancing women in the workplace and developing female talent. We are determined to increase the number of women we recruit to 25% and the number in senior management positions to 20%.
