Despite the crisis: 151 training positions in aeronautical and industrial occupations

After more than 200 young people from the 2020 training year began their career at Lufthansa Technik at the beginning of August, the company is now already starting recruitment for next year's apprenticeships. Despite the continuing crisis in the aviation industry, Lufthansa Technik thus continues to focus consistently on the aeronautical and industrial training of talented young people, albeit with figures adjusted to the current situation.

In Hamburg, 102 training positions are offered for aircraft mechanics in the fields of repair, manufacturing and engine technology, for electronics technicians for devices and systems, and for tool mechanics and surface coating technicians. At the Frankfurt site, eight training positions are open for aircraft mechanics specializing in engine technology. Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services is offering 16 training positions for specialists in warehouse logistics and forwarding agents. Lufthansa Technik AERO Alzey also offers ten training positions for aircraft mechanics specializing in engine technology and one cutting machine operator specialising in milling technology. Lufthansa LEOS is moreover looking for a total of four apprentices as automotive mechanics, two of them in Frankfurt and two in Munich. N3 Engine Overhaul Services, a joint venture with Rolls-Royce, plans to start training in 2021 with a total of ten training positions for aircraft mechanics specializing in engine technology.

"There is a significant demographic change in the workforce, as many highly qualified colleagues will be going into well-deserved retirement in the coming years," said Martin Horn, Senior Vice President Recruiting and Vocational Training at Lufthansa Technik. "Therefore it is important to prepare our company for this change in a sustainable manner. Due to the corona crisis, we have reduced the number of available apprenticeship positions accordingly compared to 2020. However, we will continue to maintain our commitment to training, which has lasted for more than 60 years, because for us vocational training is not only a corporate obligation but also a social responsibility and an investment in the future of the aviation industry."
