Kom werken bij KLM

Denk je aan Schiphol, dan denk je waarschijnlijk ook aan KLM. Niet gek, want Schiphol is de ‘thuishaven’ van KLM. En daarom zie je een hoop blauw op en rond de luchthaven. Niet alleen van de vliegtuigen en uniformen, maar ook van de minder zichtbare KLM’ers: in de hangars, kantoren, maar ook op het platform, in de bagagehallen en de vrachtloods. Al die verschillende professionals houden KLM ‘in de lucht’. Bij de complexe operatie van zo’n grote luchtvaartmaatschappij komt enorm veel kijken: van planning en crew training tot onderhoud en prachtige Tech & Data oplossingen. Dit maakt dat je binnen KLM alle kanten op kunt.
