Aviation Corp looking for talent from around the world

CHINA'S biggest plane maker today announced plans to recruit 13 senior executives worldwide, the first time a Chinese military company has looked for executives from home and abroad.

The executives will work at 12 subsidiaries, business units and research institutes, the Aviation Industry Corp said at a statement today.

The 13 posts will cover business management, production management, marketing, research and development and capital operations. Talents with background or experience as middle-level executives in multi-national companies, large Chinese state-owned enterprises or other large enterprises will be the targets.

"In order to actively merge into the world aviation industrial chain, merge into the regional economic development circle and challenge the target of 1 trillion yuan in revenue by 2017, AVIC needs a large number of professional managers," said Gao Jianshe, executive vice president of AVIC.

The recruitment drive is expected to last for six months, with March 30 as the deadline for applications.

The state-run company will pursue an initial public offering to raise funds as well as selling shares to domestic and overseas investors, and it also seeks strategic investors, Gao told reporters in Beijing today.

China has merged its two largest aircraft makers to form AVIC in its drive to become a world-class commercial aircraft maker.

In May AVIC created the Commercial Aircraft Corp of China with the Shanghai government to produce large aircraft.

All facets of the process - from design to material sourcing and production - will be carried out in China with the project aiming to reduce the country's reliance on overseas firms.
