Embraer is embarking upon a hiring spree as it seeks to fill 1,000 jobs in Brazil to help boost production rates and support services growth. The company is also looking to expand on its product development and new businesses through the additional hires, it said, noting aircraft deliveries are anticipated to increase between 15 percent and 25 percent this year.

"These hires materialize the strategic plan that includes the resumption of aviation growth and all investment in technology, innovation, and new businesses at Embraer. We are very excited about the market prospects that generate career opportunities in several areas of the company," said Carlos Alberto Griner, vice-president of people, ESG (environmental, social, and governance), and communication. "Alongside the talents of traditional educational programs that meet the needs of accelerated qualification and natural replacement of professionals, the new employees will contribute to our efforts to have a more agile and competitive company in an increasingly flexible and diverse work environment."

Embraer, which had 18,000 employees at the end of 2021, said it plans to hire with an eye on diversity, individuality, and commitment to ESG. Hires will include remote and hybrid work plans, it said.
