AVIATION, DEFENSE & AEROSPACE RECRUITMENT
Aviation recruitment focused on the UAE, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf
The UAE and Saudi Arabia are the two key aviation markets in the region, together constituting approximately 73% of the total fleet size in the Gulf aviation sector. The security, aerospace and defence sectors have risen to become an imperative component of the UAE’s pecuniary diversification strategy, with lucrative projects gaining momentum in the last 3-5 years. While the defence sector has continued to soar, growth in the commercial aerospace sector has plateaued. Nevertheless, the aviation and defence industry is expected to resume its growth trajectory with the commercial aerospace sector recovering from its decline in 2019. Moving forward, 2022 is likely to be a year of significant milestones for the global commercial space ecosystem as the sector may see steady investments in new and existing space technologies, in addition, improvement and expansion of airport infrastructure. The development of a durable defence manufacturing base is also progressing well, following the unveiling of new armoured vehicles and protective equipment ventures.
Following the detrimental impact on jobs in the sector due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Cooper Fitch understand that as certain areas of this sector recover, coupled with extensive expansion plans, this will create many job opportunities across various specialisms in the future. In 2021, employer activity is showing an increase in demand for both local and international talent across both commercial and technical backgrounds and expertise.
