Daher Aerospace, a French aviation equipment and high-tech solutions provider, has announced that it will recruit 400 employees in 2016. The company is immediately recruiting 200 employees for its sites in Toulouse and Saint-Aignan-de-Grandlieu near Nantes. A second wave of recruitment is scheduled for September 2016, and will see an additional 200 positions created. Previous incidents of job creation were reported in 2009 and in 2013, each in the aerospace activities of the Daher Group. The company is now recruiting in response to a large increase in orders, notably for the production of Airbus lines A320 and A350. Daher intends to recruit about 30 employees per week, which is quite challenging for its human resources services. Therefore, Daher Aerospace has requested help from the temporary work group Manpower to overcome the difficulties that such intense recruitment is likely to create, and to overcome difficulties in accessing enough skilled workers.
