Latest Trends In Aviation Industry RecruitmentLatest Trends In Aviation Industry Recruitment

Since last decade or so, we are witnessing increased trend of hiring through recruitment agencies in most of the industries and fields including, but not limited to, defense, hospitality, telecommunication, various disciplines in engineering, health, etc. Aviation industry is no exception.

There are several aviation recruitment agencies working throughout the world and providing employee hiring services to almost all the major airline carriers in variety of disciplines. These recruitment agencies are not only the hiring resource for airline companies, but also a great employment resource for novice as well as professional job seekers.

Aviation recruitment agencies have their own websites where they advertize the job positions in variety of disciplines including cabin crew service, flight attendants, pilots, engineers, and many more as per requirements solicited to them by the airline companies that need to hire employees. There are various other jobs in aviation industry; for example, in baggage handling and other background services at airline counters at airports.

These agencies provide an excellent alternative to a full-fledged recruitment departments maintained by airline companies themselves.  They perform most of the functions used to be performed by recruitment departments. A recruitment agency collects the details of vacancies and their job descriptions from airline companies and posts them on its website with details provided by the airline companies. They also pledge to maintain the privacy of airline companies if they wish to keep their names confidential.

After advertizing job positions, the agencies collect the resumes of prospective job seekers, screen them according to skills and qualifications required against each job position, and short-list the candidates for interview. Some of the airline companies also authorize these agencies to arrange preliminary interviews for further short-listing of the candidates. Thus, recruitment agencies also need to hire relevant industry experts in relevant disciplines for preliminary screening of the candidates to be forwarded to airline human resources department for further interview process.

Besides posting job advertisements, the recruitment agencies also maintain a database of professionals in the industry. They also send individual emails to many prospective candidates individually or through automated email systems. The data banks of aviation recruitment agencies are especially useful when an airline needs to hire an executive for a high rank position. They are useful for finding high rank executives in the industry, contact them, and manage appointments with interested executives who may be seeking to switch the job for a higher position.

Like all other industries, aviation business was also hit hard by the recession and the effect is felt globally. The same has affected aviation recruitment agencies business as there have been more layoffs than hiring in last few years. However, the recruitment has not totally stopped, though it is slower as compared to that a decade ago. New airline companies are emerging in the market with requirement of staff in various disciplines, and recruitment agencies are helping them hire the best talent available in the job market. It is expected that aviation industry will also gain momentum in a few years and recruitment rate will also increase.
