ATR and ISAE-SUPAERO signed last week a cooperation framework agreement, due to come into effect this autumn. The partnership aims to create a direct link between ATR and ISAE-SUPAERO students, enabling them to find out more about the company, its values and its various professions.
Through this partnership, ATR will be able to help the institute organise job search workshops, take part in open work days organised by former students and benefit from face-to-face discussions with students in order to showcase its expertise in the field of regional aviation. Site visits will also be held, to give students an understanding of ATR’s day-to-day activities.
ATR and ISAE-SUPAERO’s many shared objectives spawned a number of joint activities last year, which will now be continued as part of this agreement. These include the dissemination of job and internship offers, direct communications to students regarding specific developments within the company, and ATR’s participation at the Aerospace Village business forum held on the ISAE-SUPAERO campus.
Signed by ATR’s Head of Human Resources Olga Renda-Blanche and ISAE-SUPAERO President Olivier Lesbre, this new agreement establishes a special, enduring relationship between two of the sector’s key players, both of whom are keen to promote the employment of young people in France’s Occitania region.
ATR is the global market leader for regional aircraft with less than 90 seats. Since its creation in 1981, the company has sold more than 1,500 aircraft, flown by some 200 operators in nearly 100 countries and so far clocking up over 30 million flights! ATR is an equal partnership between two key players in the European aeronautics sector – Airbus and Leonardo – and employs some 1,300 people. The company also has ISO 14001 certification, showing that it meets international standards in terms of its respect for the environment.
