Do you have experience with the assembly and integration of aluminium parts? We are expanding our international team in our brand new production facility for Space Launchers. 

At Airbus Defence and Space Netherlands, we work at the frontiers of technology in one of the most challenging and rapidly changing industries in the world: Space. Our products and services - including Solar Arrays, Launcher Structures, Instruments & Services, EGSE and Mechanical Thermal products - are among the best in the world. They enable missions that are of great importance for our everyday life on Earth, such as satellite navigation, communications, climate research and monitoring of air quality.

At our state-of-the-art facilities, a team of over 250 dedicated professionals work on the design, development, assembly, testing and delivery of space products and services. We do that by thinking creatively in terms of solutions and by working with like-minded business partners. Intensive collaboration in our international community is the key to success, also within the Airbus family that we are proudly part of.




Job description

As Assembler, you are responsible for one of the most important steps of our space projects; the assembly and integration of aluminium (space) products and the execution of acceptance tests to check if the work is performed correctly. The majority of the integration work is done with drilling and riveting. In addition to the technical aspects, thinking along and carrying out modifications to products and molds are also part of the job.

The work is performed in our new conditioned production facilities where we work with an industrial drilling and pulling robot. You will be part of a new international team that started the production a year ago. Since the production is still in a start-up phase, you need to bring a flexible mind-set. In return, we will have some interesting challenges ready for you.

What it takes

You completed a relevant lower (technical) education supplemented with 2 years of work experience as assembler or sheet metal worker in the Aerospace industry or a comparable sector. Affinity with robotisation is a plus. With two right hands, you are able to build high quality aluminium products together. On a technical content level, you provide input to solve technical problems. You master the English language in speaking and writing, and you have knowledge of Microsoft Office (Word and Excel). Further, you are able to use various digital tools to carry out the work.

You recognize yourself in the following profile:

  • Collaboration
  • Quality oriented
  • Takes initiative
  • Communicative
  • Flexible

Our offer

We offer a challenging job in a dynamic and international working environment with good working conditions. The working location is Oegstgeest. Working hours are from 7.30 AM until 16.00 PM.
