Faces of Airbus


Shashwath, Customer supply manager

Originally from Bangalore in India, Shashwath works as a Customer supply manager in Airbus Toulouse. Within the cabin furnishing department, his task is to ensure that the ordered parts arrive on time, and are properly allocated. “The interiors must be delivered to the quality and to the time as agreed with our clients”. Greatly inspired by previous Airbus CEO Tom Enders (who he met in person and has a birthday on the same day), joining Airbus has been his aim since watching the first A380 take to the sky. He filled in 75 applications on the career website. “Now I have my dream job".

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.“

María, Digital Transformation Office

"The digitalisation of the shopfloor is undoubtedly a key factor capable of providing important improvements in relation to quality, efficiency, costs and the product" says María. Her goal is to incorporate digitalisation at the production plants of all the Airbus divisions. To get the real shopfloor experience she put on a set of overalls and spent a week there working with the operators. "You don't really understand what their work is all about until you put yourself in their position".
