Around 1,000 new employees are slated to be hired at the core brand Lufthansa in 2020. 450 prospective flight attendants alone will begin their training at the Munich location. In addition, 40 flying colleagues will be joining Lufthansa CityLine at the Bavarian hub. The Lufthansa subsidiary in Munich plans to employ approximately as many administrative staff. Furthermore, around 100 recruitments in administration are planned at Lufthansa, along with around 300 in ground operations. The crane airline is also looking for candidates in the area of IT and for other expert positions this year.
The focus on IT that was set last year continues across almost the entire Lufthansa Group, especially with the in-house IT service providers. For example, Lufthansa Industry Solutions is looking to hire around 350 new employees to meet the increasing need for IT services inside and outside the Lufthansa Group – technology specialists as well as specialists with industry-specific knowledge. Lufthansa Systems is also looking for IT specialists of all kinds at its international locations, with plans to hire around 200 people worldwide.
“Our most important competitive advantage lies in our employees, who give their best for our customers and our company every day with their dedication and skills. This year we will again be looking for dedicated talent in the job market. Our diverse range of career opportunities speaks for itself,” says Michael Niggemann, who was appointed to the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG effective 1 January 2020 as Head of HR and Legal.
