Aviation recruitment giant CAE Parc Aviation is to create 80 jobs over the next three years (30 of them this year), with moves to bigger premises in Dublin and Shannon. The roles will be for recruitment consultants to help airlines source new pilots plus engineers to work with the global aircraft leasing sector.
Headquartered in Dublin, Parc has offices in Shannon, Dallas, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur and Ho Chi Minh, and currently employs over 100.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell-O’Connor, speaking at the new offices in Dublin, said: “CAE Parc Aviation has had a very active relationship with Enterprise Ireland’s overseas office network over the years, participating in several international trade events – indeed, it was a great pleasure to meet them in Tokyo on my trade mission to China and Japan last year.
“The Asia Pacific market is currently the fastest growing aviation market with the global share of passenger traffic currently at 31pc and likely to increase to 42pc by 2034 – this is a key region.”
CAE Parc Aviation Managing Director Frank Collins said: “Airlines around the globe are hiring pilots and other aviation professionals to enable them to grow. Our success in recruiting pilots to new and existing customers has resulted in us outgrowing our home of 35 years and moving to modern new premises.”
Julie Sinnamon, CEO, Enterprise Ireland said: “Over the next 20 years, the aviation industry will need to supply more than one million new aviation personnel. The total civil aerospace expenditure is estimated to be worth $5.6 trillion by 2032 and the world’s airlines will need 38,000 new planes to cater for this demand – as well as the crews to operate them.”
