Positions Available For Workers With "A Variety Of Skill
Boeing is hiring in Oklahoma City for a variety of positions to
staff a new engineering design center that will produce upgrades
for the C-130 Hercules and the B-1 Lancer aircraft.
As the company announced in August 2010, these programs will
begin to transition from Long Beach, CA, to Oklahoma City this
April. The transition will shift 550 jobs to Oklahoma City by the
end of 2012 and create 150 open positions this year. "Boeing has
started posting jobs for a variety of skill sets on our website,"
said Mike Emmelhainz, Boeing Oklahoma City site director. "Hiring
new and diverse talent for the new engineering design center is
important because of what they bring to the work force -- namely,
exposure to new ideas."
Boeing's highly skilled work force is a key asset to developing
and delivering world-class aerospace products and services. Boeing
offers jobs with opportunities for growth and development. "We
support our employees in increasing their job-related knowledge and
skills through formal learning programs and other opportunities,"
Current recruiting is targeted at talent in engineering
disciplines, including embedded software; structural; design and
analysis; wire design and install; and systems. Business support
jobs for the C-130 and B-1 programs also are available, including
business planning and supply chain positions.
Transitioning the programs to Oklahoma will help Boeing provide
a more affordable cost structure for customers, as well as make the
company more competitive for new business. The Oklahoma City
facility includes 50,000 square feet of space that is being
remodeled to accommodate the C-130 employees who will begin
arriving in April.
