Aviation industry is hiring: the Nordic Aviation Group holds a recruitment day in Stockholm exclusively open to invitees

  • 2023-03-08

Owner of two airline brands, Xfly and Nordica, the Nordic Aviation Group announces the taking place of an exclusively open to “invites only” recruitment day in Stockholm – one of the many in the series. The event was preceded by open recruitment days successfully held on Valentine’s Day in Tallinn, on March the 1st in Vilnius, as well as those in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Munich and Hamburg.

“The aviation industry, especially us in the ACMI business, is recruiting in the light of new strategic partnerships and contracts. New airlines are being formed and the existing ones expanding. In aviation industry it is common to hire people on the so called “assessment” and “recruitment days” – our future team members get to ask questions and have the initial impression of what it is like to be part of this fascinating world. Our success is a reflection of the passion and dedication of our existing team. We are a caring employer to more than 600 aviation specialists of 30 different nationalities - I see many opportunities in that for individual motivation and business growth,” Jan Palmer, the CEO of the group comments.

The experienced cabin crew recruitment event being held today is exclusively addressed for experienced cabin crew candidates who have previously received an invitation – common in aviation industry to meet ones new-hires and eventual rehires.

“Can you picture yourself working in the aviation industry? Mark your calendar to make the industry your new employer, I suggest becoming part of the significant growth we are witnessing. Therefore we are constantly looking for new talents, who want to, in a way, shape this business. Today’s event is one in the series to bring talent to us,” Toomas Uibo, the Head of Marketing, Communications and Sustainability of the group reveals.  The manager explains also recruiting pilots takes creativity from an airline and adds the recent Berlin Pilot Expo 2023 is one of the many ways of having a common ground with pilots willing to work for big brands.

“Since the industry is recruiting pilots and cabin crew, both for growth and to fill seasonal vacancies, business managers have to find creative ways for hiring new talent, and why not – rehiring those who have gone elsewhere during the Covid pandemic,” Uibo adds and exemplifies “office-to-cabin” initiatives have become common in the aviation overall, where airline cabin crews are staffed with trained office personnel during peak periods.

“We see that the youth is interested also in summer jobs, seasonable rosters can be seen as an opportunity in my opinion,” the CMO explains. “You can mark your calendar to discover the right role to commence a fresh beginning in the aviation industry,” Uibo concludes with an invite for professionals to become brand ambassadors of this interesting sector.
