Aerospace companies looking to fill 1,000 jobs in Singapore over next two years
Aerospace companies in Singapore are planning to hire 1,000 people over the next two years, as the sector gears up for new growth opportunities in digital services, autonomous technology and sustainability. One company that recently embarked on a recruitment drive is American aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney, which plans to add 250 more employees to its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operations in Singapore by the end of this year.
