Lufthansa Technik is aiming to hire 1,200 new staff across Germany to boost growth in 2019, a press release said Tuesday (January 1, 2019). The move is part of the Lufthansa Group’s plans to hire some 5,500 new employees across its home markets in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Belgium.
From technical know-how to IT
Lufthansa Technik wants to hire several hundred employees nationwide in engineering and logistics. An additional 400 university graduates and trained specialists are being sought as direct entrants and more than 200 trainees mainly in Hamburg and Frankfurt. Last November, Lufthansa Technik was named one of the best training companies in Germany by the business magazine Capital. The Lufthansa Group is also searching for more than 600 IT specialists across Germany.

According to the globally operating Lufthansa Group, more than 170,000 people applied for over 500 different jobs in 2018. “This shows once again how popular the Lufthansa Group with its various business segments is as an employer,” said Bettina Volkens, Executive Vice President Human Resources & Legal at Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
