Aerospace & Defence

The Aerospace & Defence practice focuses on and specialises in cross functional, mid-senior level recruitment across the MRO, Aerospace Manufacturing (including components), Airlines & Airports and Defence sectors and have successfully completed mandates across EMEA in these areas.


Although evidently part of the same industry, aerospace and defense are moving in opposite directions. Defense companies face fiscally constrained customers, whereas the commercial aerospace business is expanding because of a rebound in global economies and the rise of emerging regions. Still, there is one critical similarity between the two sectors: They are both continuing to evolve. 

We know the aerospace and defence industries and bring a broad and deep perspective on how to leverage talent combined with a thorough, transparent and consultative approach. The team have successfully completed assignments for some of the industry’s leading names across the UK, Europe & Middle East and have strong sector knowledge stemming from our offices in London, Hamburg, Brussels, Stockholm, Frankfurt & Dubai.

What our clients think

The research at Carmichael Fisher is of a very high quality. The team not only identified the right kind of target companies but were also very responsive to our suggestions. The language challenges of our pan-European search presented no problems for them, and the fact that they had actually met with the candidates they put forward – rather than just had a telephone conversation – really paid off.
