Employment, a major challenge for industry


Contrary to received opinion, French industry is awash with jobs, and unfortunately all too often many of these go unfilled.
GLOBAL INDUSTRIE created a Campus totally dedicated to employment in industry, training and the attractions of the various trades in order to focus attention on this question, and to do its bit to put matters right as we move towards the industry of tomorrow.
1,500 m² were set aside for this initiative in order to allow it to do justice to the wealth of careers, shine the spotlight on trade and publicize the available jobs, as well as looking at the impact of automation and digitization in the years to come.
Feedback, the Recruitment Space, the Demonstration Space, the Trades and Guidance Space, the Student Trail… representing as many separate services as opportunities for a closer look at the reality of the sector, to meet figures from the world of industry and to discover concrete examples of dynamic technologies.

Mission more than accomplished


No fewer than 5,858 school pupils and students, from high schools to engineering colleges, and everything in between …, and 1,000 people looking for jobs or seeking to change career walked the aisles of GLOBAL INDUSTRIE, primarily as a result of the Campus initiative.
35 lectures were given over the four days by thirty professionals, specifically invited to meet this audience, on themes as varied as entrepreneurship, information about which industry trades are recruiting (engineer, sales engineer, electrician, welder…) and the associated training courses, building the industry of tomorrow by bringing in fresh talent, and all combined with feedback.


There were also 75 individual speed coaching sessions lasting 30 minutes organized by Arts & Métiers Alumni on very specific topics such as: “Are you made to be an entrepreneur?”, “Take the lead and steer your career” and “Students and recent graduates, get off on the right foot”. There was also a Jobs Cluster, which offered two innovative recruitment methods: the “Online show”, aimed at visitors, and “Recruitment via Simulation” to help recruiters find suitable candidates for jobs without having to consider their level of qualification or their CV..


Finally, guided tours of GLOBAL INDUSTRIE were run over the 4 days of the event for students training at colleges in the Ile-de-France region with the aim of raising their awareness of industry trades.

The success of this universally praised initiative fully justifies its return at the Lyons show in 2019

Employment at the heart of GLOBAL INDUSTRIE thanks to numerous initiatives


Besides the Campus, a major round table on the subject of “Training for change” was staged. View the whole of it here.
A number of other initiatives were also pursued in 2018 at the various shows in order to allow people to get a feel for the opportunities offered by industry:



What the press said…
Industry brings back jobs


The annual study by Trendeo, the analysts, published on Friday 2nd March and posted on the Le Monde website, reported that, “Industry is once again beginning to create a significant number of jobs, with the highest profile example being the hiring that’s taking place in the car plants”, states Mr Cousquer, [founder of Trendeo] (…).
The consequence of all this is that industrial production was been the second largest net creator of jobs, just behind services. “The recovery is beginning to benefit regions such as the North and the East, which suffered over recent years as a result of the crisis in industry”, adds Mr Cousquer. In fact, Hauts-de-France is the number one French region in terms of net job creation.


This trend may be linked to a phenomenon that is both new and welcome: after having destroyed so many factories, France is finally building them again. In 2017, Trendeo recorded the opening of 125 industrial plants and the closure of 100. A positive balance of 25 factories.
Amongst other positive signals, the analyst reports that major companies have finally joined the job creation movement, whereas, up until now, it has been medium-sized companies and SMEs that have been driving this trend forward. Finally, Trendeo reports that French start-ups are doing well and represent “a not insignificant source of new jobs (net creation of 11,149 jobs in 2017)”.
