French commercial plane manufacturer, Airbus, has disclosed plans to recruit 6,000 new employees during the first half of 2022.

The hiring drive will take place worldwide, with an emphasis on acquiring new skill sets to support the company’s decarbonisation efforts, digital transformation, and cyber technology. A significant portion of the positions will also be earmarked for recent graduates.
