How does M&E support its clients to source the best aviation industry candidates?

With a long term and sustained growth strategy, M&E Global has increased its services to match the many changes required to support this ever-demanding sector.

We recognise and support many organisations as they face key issues including: increased change, globalisation, smart acquisition and the need for skilled personnel in a range of aviation contract jobs – in a market where budgets are shrinking and the skills gap is expanding.

However, while some sectors turn overseas for recruitment options, this is not always viable due to security clearance issues. As such, contract aviation jobs provide a vital service to the aerospace sector.

Over the next two decades, the world’s airlines are predicted to order twice as many aircraft as are flying today.

M&E is a key supplier to international defence organisations of all levels and we’ve completed assignments for a wide range of Engineers, Managers and Directors – from R&D through to manufacturing.

Our strength in this market comes from a thorough understanding of our clients' market and recruitment needs. Our experienced team has extensive practical experience within aviation, enabling them to offer the very best solutions for contract recruitment positions.

M&E provides aviation support on a global basis, including in Europe, the Middle East / Southwest Asia and the United States, we have ample experience working in demanding and austere environments where minimal infrastructure exists and have forged an excellent reputation with our support of rotary and fixed-wing aircraft.  

Services delivered by M&E include scheduled, unscheduled and preventative maintenance, reset, limited depot maintenance, scheduled inspections and tests. M&E also maintains ground support equipment and provides related logistic support activities.

We also provide rapid mobilisation of workers to a range of aviation contract jobs as well as the establishment of core aviation facilities. M&E also responds to the changing through-life needs of projects to provide its customers with flexible, scalable and highly cost-effective solutions.  ​
