Carmichael Fisher's Industry & Manufacturing team has operated within the Aerospace sector, supporting multinational businesses for over a decade. Due to our success in this area we launched our dedicated Aerospace Executive Search practice in 2013, positioning it to support organisations that require access to an ever more competitive, mobile, and geographically wide-spread talent pool. The practice focuses on the following sub-sectors:


Aircraft Interiors         • Components & Systems
• MRO's                          • Ground Handling

The Aerospace practice is ideally structured to support organisations on business critical recruitment mandates and can do so without geographical boundaries; an aspect that is increasingly important given the shift towards new growth markets in Asia and the Middle East, the movement of operations to low cost regions, and the drive by major OEM's to consolidate their supply chains and bring services in-house. Not only do we have a deep and up to date knowledge of the aerospace sector to rely on to close searches, but being part of the broader Industry & Manufacturing division allows us to easily tap into candidates with relevant skills from outside the sector. This has proven very beneficial at a time when aerospace businesses are fighting to deliver high quality products and services during critical ramp up phases and access to talent with the right skill sets can bring an edge to the table.


Comprising a multi-lingual and multi-cultural team of sector specialists operating from offices spread across the globe we are able to identify, attract, and assess talent at source and always do so with a personalised approach. A strong partnership and mutual understanding with our clients allows us to commence searches with a broad understanding of their needs that goes beyond the job specification. This bespoke and consultative approach has seen us successfully complete assignments for some of the industry's leading names across North America, Europe, The Middle East and Asia.
