FRANKFURT (Lufthansa) - Good news for Germany as a business location: Lufthansa will recruit a total of 2,400 new employees next year. Most of the growth will occur in operational areas, with the company requiring 1,420 flight attendants and 220 ground staff to provide passenger handling services at its Frankfurt and Munich hubs.
In the new year, 180 pilot students and 330 trainees will begin their professional training at Lufthansa. In addition, the Lufthansa Group will offer 250 university graduates and experienced academics in the fields of engineering, IT and commerce an opportunity to join the company. Once again, Lufthansa has shown that even in economically difficult times it is a reliable and attractive employer. In fact, graduates rate Lufthansa among the top ten employers in Germany.
The first of the 1,420 future flight attendants will start their nine-week training course in January, after which they will be deployed on European and long-haul routes from Frankfurt and Munich. Lufthansa offers its staff a wide variety of attractive working time arrangements. For example, flight attendants can opt for seasonal contracts from May to October, while ground staff can work for three or four days a week.
Lufthansa’s recognised pilot training programme, which takes just two years, prepares and qualifies pilots for a fascinating career. Training takes place at Lufthansa Flight Training in Bremen as well as in Phoenix, Arizona.
Applications for the new jobs at Lufthansa can be made online via the Lufthansa career portal at www.Be-Lufthansa.com. Interested candidates can find further information there about necessary qualifications and entry requirements.
