It is understandable that specialized fields of employment will require employees with a specialized skill/set of skills. Aerospace jobs in Canada are no exception – these roles often involve a very high degree of complexity and therefore must be filled by skilled engineers and/or aerospace technicians with the unique qualifications that meet the expectations of these employers. As a result, technical recruitment agencies are frequently engaged to find suitable candidates for jobs in the aerospace industry.
Recruitment agencies can assist in securing aerospace jobs in either the public or private sector, which in turn can range across several disciplines depending on the particular focus of those aerospace firms:
- Product design, construction, and testing
- Product installation and maintenance
- Research and development
In an effort to staff their needs in the above-noted areas of responsibility, aerospace firms often call upon the expertise and agency staffing services to find the right individual or individuals to fulfill such jobs as:
- Mechanical engineer
- Electrical engineer
- Technician or technologist
- Technical writer
- Customer/field service representative
The aerospace industry offers a wide range of job opportunities that can lead to a long and highly successful career for those candidates with the right background and skill set. Enlisting the services of technical recruitment agencies can be the stepping stone or catalyst to fulfilling such a professional pathway.
Aerospace Jobs Require Specialized Skills To Meet Company And Client Needs
Many people might assume that aerospace jobs are dominated by meticulous/precise calculations and painstaking research and development. While these facets are indeed an integral part of several roles within this particular industry, there are in fact a diverse set of skills and educational backgrounds required to fill a variety of positions.
When recruitment agencies are working to identify candidates on behalf of an aerospace company, some of the major skills/areas of knowledge preferred by these employers include:
- Applied sciences – practical applications of math, chemistry, physics
- Pneumatics and hydraulics
- Metallurgy – the physical and chemical behaviour of metals and alloys
- Avionics – the electronic systems used on aircraft and spacecraft
In addition to the above skills aligned with the engineering field, technical recruitment agencies will also look to place individuals who demonstrate competence in transferable skills (i.e.: applicable across most types of aerospace jobs). These types of personal skills will be important for both internal positions as well as client-facing roles, and they will consist of:
- Interpersonal skills
- Communication skills
- Computer/software proficiency
Blending a candidate’s specific and unique combination of technical and personal skills into an attractive and appropriate resume can prove to be challenging. The experience and expertise of recruiting agencies would be valuable assets in ensuring that your resume applies and appeals to the needs of any prospective employer.
