Recruitment

The SEACA employs 30 permanent staff members and over 240 additional workers during the winter season working across the entire Chambéry-Savoie Airport. 

The full range of airport professions

The airport focuses on all operations related to airport operations: runway, maintenance, stopovers, security management, quality, safety and commercial support: administration and finance, marketing, communication and human resources. 

Airport staff develop skills which today make them advanced professions and well-recognised thanks to their ability to adapt to seasonality which is a key experience. 

Our values

Employees of the airport are one of the strengths which Vinci Group has always promoted and striven to advance. Attentiveness, respect, promotion of expertise are all at the core of airport organisation. 

 

Our HR policy

Seasonal recruitment

Chambéry Airport welcomes thousands of tourists heading to winter sports resorts between December and April. This seasonal activity is highlighted through a large increase in workforce in the year and winter recruitment of fixed-term or temporary employees. 

Each year, from September onwards, the airport recruits over 240 seasonal staff. Its direct partners are also led to employ over 50 people (security, commerce and services). 

 

The airport as a local stakeholder

The airport and its partners provide a solid contribution to regional employment and allow employees to gain sought skills (training in safety regulations: security, airport safety, runway passes). As a key local stakeholder in seasonal employment, the airport has developed strong ties with local employment agencies: unemployment agencies, local branches and temporary employment agencies. 

 

Airport professionals

VINCI Group is continuing in professionalization of all airport staff whether men, women, young people, senior employees or disabled employees. 

As a service sector, air transportation implies a genuine culture of proximity and the regulatory environment of an airport platform requires the acquisition of special and ad hoc skills.  

 

Vocational training

All airport teams are involved in meeting passenger expectations. So as to respond to this challenge, each permanent employee is a key reference in the profession so as to welcome, integrate and train temporary staff. 

The quality of training allows temporary employees to have transferrable skills and knowledge to other airport platforms in the following areas: airline assistance, baggage handler, driver, traffic agent, boarding agent, check-in crew, luggage dispute agent, sales, welcome. 

All staff are also training in safety and security.

In figures: 1300 hours dedicated to training for almost 200 temporary workers.

 

Developing multiple skills

Within the same airport platform, employees are able to perform, during some of their working hours, tasks related to other professions such as mentoring, prevention, etc. which enables development of multiple skills for employees. 

Through this incoherent blend of certain posts and in respect of the principles of security and safety, links are constructed between:

runway/supplies,

welcome/sales/stopover,

welcome/traffic/commercial aviation,

SSLIA [Airport Fire Safety and Rescue]/maintaining vegetation and enclosures.
