Capturing the Group’s professions

The “My camera with the pros” project provided an opportunity for 14- and 15-year-old high-school students to interview the Group’s professionals and film them on the job. Safran then invited these youths to the Paris Air Show on Friday June 19 to find out more about its business lines.

A few months ago, students from Paul Eluard high school (south of Paris) shot an over-the-shoulder documentary at Sagem's plant in Massy* to capture its production-related jobs on film.

The "My camera with the pros" initiative is backed by the French Ministry for Education and provides 14- to 15-year-old students from disadvantaged districts with an opportunity to produce a documentary about forward-looking professions in their area. Beyond the entertaining aspect – i.e. capturing and producing their own audiovisual content – the program encourages youths to explore real-life work situations and find out more about jobs and their environments.

Safran has been working on this program since 2013 (it is a founding member). It sees it as an opportunity to attract young audiences towards production-related professions and hopes to persuade them to join the Group.

*Three other Group plants took part in this project in 2014/2015: Messier-Bugatti-Dowty Bidos in the Bordeaux area, Messier-Bugatti-Dowty Molsheim in the Strasbourg area and Microturbo in the Toulouse area.
