Automated machine operator: fast-changing job at the heart of the factory of the future

At Safran, the factory of the future is already up and running, as a look at the state-of-the-art equipment installed at sites in recent years reveals – from Safran Helicopter's turbine blade production line in Bordes to the machining unit at Safran Landing Systems' Wheels & Brakes division in Molsheim.

Safran and disabilities: working closely with outside agencies

All too often, young people with disabilities give up on their education for fear they won't realistically find a job, or their employer won't provide the accessibility and other support measures they need. Emilie Tejedor, 27, had exactly this kind of negative experience. Now, however, she's doing a work-study placement as a disabilities and diversity officer at Safran's CSR and Diversity department. "I wanted to study chemistry, but I was talked out of it because of my disability," she says.

“@ Safran, We love intrapreneurs!”

Innovating is about having not just good ideas, but a certain mindset too. And that's why Safran launched an innovation support program called "We love intrapreneurs" at the end of 2018. The idea is to encourage employees to identify new products and services that could generate value for the Group, and to help them fulfill their project within the company.

Claire Franson, head of a characterization laboratory

Can you tell us a little more about your career path?

CF: I'm celebrating 20 years with Safran this year. I started off as a chemical engineering apprentice before being recruited as research engineer in the chemistry laboratory at Le Bouchet research center (CRB)*.

While continuing to work as a chemical materials characterization specialist, I was also made laboratory manager in 2004. I carried on doing both jobs for a few years before taking over as head of the CRB characterization laboratories in 2014.
