Over 300 young people are starting their careers at Lufthansa Technik this year.

According to the technical aircraft service provider, the rising global demand for air travel and the resulting increased need for aircraft MRO services is leading to a growing need for personnel at its facilities.

As such, the company is looking for skilled workers for its German sites across all areas: mechanics, electronics technicians for devices and systems, engineers, junior staff for the logistics department and for the commercial sector.

Out of the 321 new apprenticeship or study places available, 215 are directly for Lufthansa Technik AG, 52 for Lufthansa Airline’s MRO operations, and the remaining for other companies in the Lufthansa Technik Group. This year, women account for 11 per cent of the apprenticeship positions and 18 per cent of the study positions.

Lufthansa Technik states that the training of highly qualified employees is central in securing the company’s future development because it is competing with numerous other companies that are preparing for the changes brought by the upcoming generation shift and digitalisation.

Andrea Jacobsen, head of entry programmes at Lufthansa Technik, said: “Today, employees expect exciting tasks, good supervisors and colleagues, career prospects, and job security. In addition, they expect comprehensive support during the training period.

“These features are weighted higher by them than a high training salary or benefits such as discounted flying or an international environment.”

A full list of the training figures by location and specialisation is available on the Lufthansa Technik website.
