Aerotek seeks to fill more than 100 openings at Wichita aviation job fair

Aerotek, a staffing services company, is seeking to fill about 120 contract and permanent positions for Sierra Nevada Corp.

Openings are for sheet metal structure mechanics, avionics technicians, airframe and powerplant mechanics, aircraft inspectors and engineers.

More than 100 of the openings are for contractors to fill one-year positions in Denver, said Josh Rainey with Aerotek.

When the year is up, the contractors could be hired by Sierra Nevada Corp., Rainey said.

Besides their salaries, contractors would be paid per diem to help with living expenses in Denver, Rainey said.

That way, they could keep a house in Wichita if they wanted, he said.

Twenty to 30 of the openings are for engineers. Some of those are for direct employment with Sierra Nevada, Rainey said.

The work is with Sierra Nevada’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance division, he said.

The job fair will be held Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Wichita Airport at 2098 Airport Road.

Candidates must be interested in relocating, the company said.

They should bring references and resumes, and applicants will be interviewed on-site.
