Now he works for Premium AEROTEC, a supplier for large structural components, owned by Airbus. With composites being a rather new material, there is always a new topic for Lorenz to explore.

Reiko, Ground training instructor

"Although aviation is rather a male-dominated world, it has been my passion since I was a child. As a flight instructor for helicopters, fixed wings and gliders, I love to fly all of them, but I especially love to fly helicopters. When I joined the company, I started my Airbus career as marketing manager for the training centre newly established in Japan, in 2012. I have now moved to the operational division to become a pilot ground instructor. Studying state-of-the-art technology is what makes me passionate about my job."

Jorge, HR manager

“Working is more about being useful rather than being important,” says Jorge who has been with the company for the 13 years. He entered as a financial controller, and later decided to change his topic. “I enjoy working in HR. It is all about connecting people: making a new good network with people and trying to join forces for better working together.“ During his normal workday, Jorge is frequently switching between Spanish, English, German and French. Although the language competence has been a great help, he admits that this is not enough to succeed in HR. “If you are not humble, if you are not emphatic, if you are not flexible, then all these languages skills are not useful for anything.“
