Aerospace and Defence Recruitment Services in India

Aerospace & Defence Industry in India


Recruitment companies in India have forecast that the aerospace & defence industry in India will likely open up $150-billion opportunity in India over the next five years. The above forecast is based on the rising passenger traffic. Therefore demand for commercial aircraft and increasing military & defence expenditures for the defence aircraft market in India. Market surveys have shown that India has the third largest armed forces in the world. It has been mandated that 30% of defence products must come from within the country and the Defence Procurement Procedure is aimed at helping Indian firms develop products, aerospace and defence recruitment consultants in India totally agree that job opportunities in this sector will see significant growth. So recruitment agencies in India all expect that the Aerospace & Defence industry is expected to mature over the next few years and global aerospace companies are already vying for a piece of the pie.



Tamil Nadu seems to have good potential, which has so far not been exploited by the aerospace & defence industry. The state has about five million tonnes of titanium, a key aerospace material today. Recruitment placement consultants in India feel that Bangalore has so far been the hub of the aerospace industry with Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd, The National Aerospace Laboratories, the Indian Space Research Organisation and the Defence Research Development Organization (DRDO) DRDO based out of Bangalore.



Some strong factors have driven the growth of this segment like the liberalization of civil aviation policies, a strong intent to modernise weapons systems and its domestic manufacturing base developed over the years, a skilled talent pool, the ability to leverage IT competitiveness and finally, Special Economic Zones that provide attractive monetary benefits for developers and manufacturers. 




Hiring trends in Aerospace & Defence industry in India





The most popular hiring trends in the Aerospace & Defence industry in India are about cabin crew and pilots for planes. For those not that keen on flying, there are always jobs for ground staff, including ground engineers, air traffic controllers, ticketing agents, airport management, security or customer service.



Recruitment agencies in India stress that outside of pilot opportunities, students can look into fields such as structural engineering, electrical technology, field service engineering, air combat officer training, technical support engineering, supply chain management, technical instruction and project engineering. There is also ample opportunity as an aviation corps officer, aircraft life support fitter, air warfare officer, avionics technician, machinist, parachute jump instructor and safety and service technician.



In addition a range of career opportunities for students looking at pursuing a career in the space sector have opened up with India's space research program ISRO.



Recruitment firms in India would like to remind job seekers that this is one of those industries which employs people with rarest of rare skill sets with very niche and specialized requirements. A recruitment firm that sources talent for this industry opines that lack of availability of talent pool and niche requirements has made the attraction and retention of talent a strategic issue.



Our recruitment company – Wizmatrix Consulting feels that the outlook for senior hiring in Aerospace and Defence sectors in India is optimistic. More than 12,000 senior jobs are expected to be added to this sector in the next five years. A recruitment agency said that four sectors were cited as showing the most potential for additional growth: commercial aerospace, services, unmanned systems and cyber security.
