Airbus India will be organizing mentorship programmes and fund returnship and training workshops for bridging the skill gap of selected candidates.
Airbus India has introduced a programme for women professionals who want to return to corporate careers after a sabbatical or maternity leave.
‘Fly Again’ has been launched by Airbus India as part of its efforts to ensure that women can make a smooth return to professional life through structured mentoring, up-skilling and onboarding.
Airbus India will be organizing mentorship programmes and fund returnship and training workshops for bridging the skill gap of selected candidates. It will host job fairs to increase awareness about the returnee programme.
Anand Stanley, President and Managing Director, Airbus India and South Asia, said, “Airbus believes in creating equal opportunities for all. Progress has been made in this direction but we will do more. Today, we are hiring more women in leadership roles and will continue until the exception becomes the norm.”
Suraj Chettri, Head of Human Resources at Airbus India & South Asia, added, “These will not be returnee internships but full-fledged employment opportunities that we will offer to women returners.”
