The Emirates group will hire over 500 candidates for IT posts in the next six months. The jobs on offer are in the areas of cyber security, technical product management, DevOps, hybrid cloud, modern architecture, software engineering, service management, digital workplace, agile delivery and innovation.
The Airline has been spending and will continue to spend on the latest technologies in order to bring out innovative solutions. These smart solutions, driven by artificial intelligence, data and so on are aimed at better products and efficient services to its valuable customers.
In October, the airline company had announced that it’d be hiring more than 6000 people for the posts of pilots, engineers, cabin crew and ground staff. Almost all of these jobs are based in Dubai.
With restrictions related to the pandemic easing up across the world and more people getting vaccinated, travel has also picked up.
Emirates has also hired back pilots, cabin crew and other staff members who had lost their jobs during the pandemic.
By 2022, the Group hopes to return to 100 per cent service.
In a bid to secure 70 per cent of its pre-pandemic capacity, Emirates has invested in various innovation programmes, internally as well as externally. For programmes such as Aviation X-Lab, it has partnered with GE, Airbus, Thales and Collins Aerospace.
