French rail giant Alstom to hire 7,500 worldwide

22 January 2022

French rail giant Alstom announced on Friday it had plannned to hire 7,500 people worldwide this year to meet rising demand and record orders totalling 77.8 billion euros at the end of last year.
The firm hopes to hire 6,000 engineers and managers as well as 1,500 workers and technicians, according to the firm that has 72,000 salaried staff around the world.   "These hires are aimed at projects involving rolling stock, signals, and services," Alstom said in a statement.
"The company doubled in size a year ago (with the purchase of the Canadian Bombardier Transport), we are present in 70 countries and our order sheet is quite big," the group's director of human resources, Anne-Sophie Chauveau-Galas, told AFP.
"So we have needs everywhere in the world to implement contracts," she added. Alstom announced earlier this month a 1.8-billion-euro ($2-billion) deal to supply up to 200 regional trains to Norway.
The framework contract with public rail company Norske Tog includes an initial firm order of 30 trains worth 380 million euros, Alstom said.
The firm said it seeks to recruit 3,900 people in Europe, 1,700 in the Asia-Pacific region, 1,500 in North and South America, and 400 in Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.
