The aerospace industry requires talent that can keep the advancements in aviation and space exploration flying high. Finding the right recruitment agency and executive search firm that can understand the many complexities and high stakes involved within aerospace can be a tough task.
180 Engineering partners with many aerospace clients and is viewed as a recruitment firm that can handle the most complex and challenging of searches. Our team takes time to sit with the hiring managers to ensure that every candidate we present matches the skills and experience needed to be successful in the role. Every candidate we present must pass a technical screen with a recruiter from our team to ensure he or she has the engineering experience required by our clients.
A global leader in Inflight Entertainment was in need of a Program Manager that would oversee the integration of the IFE systems onboard commercial aircraft, FAA certification, and be customer facing with the major airlines. The search difficulty was compounded by the fact that the deadline for integration was fast approaching and their current recruiting vendors were failing them.
The Head of Talent Acquisition remembered the contact information he received from 180 Engineering during an initial meeting and decided that he needed to give them a try as his current vendors were no longer producing any new candidates. The account manager met with the hiring team to gain a thorough understanding of the experience needed for this role.
Soon after that intake meeting, the recruitment team had sourced several PMs that all had the rare combination of IFE integration, STC certification and customer facing experience. 180 Engineering not only filled the vacancy for several Program Managers, they also ended up placing the Director of the PMO for this group.
