Lisi Aerospace is a worldwide manufacturing specialist for assembly solutions as well as engine and structural components used for aircrafts. Lisi Aerospace designs and manufactures technically advanced solutions and components, in compliance with the highest quality standards.

Workforce Challenge:

In late 2018, the company was facing difficulty finding the right candidates for a trainee program they developed to meet the company and industry needs for various machine technology/machinists positions and finding qualified candidates to fill their numerous specialized and non-specialized positions that included machinist, electricians, health and safety coordinators, production managers and quality inspectors.

​Lisi Aerospace reached out to Job developers at the South Bay One-Stop Business and Career Center – Inglewood in hopes of getting assistance identifying a pool of individuals for their new machinist trainee program and help find qualified candidates to meet their hiring needs.

Outcomes & Benefits:

After meeting with Lisi Aerospace Human Resources to discuss their new training program and hiring needs, SBWIB Job Development staff assisted with identifying, pre-screening and vetting qualified candidates in the form of direct candidate referrals for their trainee program and open positions. SBWIB’s Job Developer invited Lisi Aerospace to conduct recruitments/targeted hiring events at two of its One-Stop locations in order to identify a candidate pool for the trainee program and open positions. In addition, Lisi Aerospace was invited to attend targeted job fairs that would increase the probability of finding qualified participants. Lisi Aerospace participated in a highly specialized job fair specifically tailored for individuals in the Aerospace and Manufacturing industry. Many of the job fair attendees were individuals recently laid off from large companies where Lisi Aerospace was able to identify and hire qualified candidates. In addition, through SBWIB staff efforts, Lisi Aerospace was able to identify several candidates for their recently developed program and establish an on-the-job wage reimbursement contract to help off sent the high costs of on boarding.

​Due to the established partnership, Lisi Aerospace is in the process of completing a Paid Work experience contract with the SBWIB that will help El Camino Machine Tool Technology Trainees going through the propel LA program gain real work experience that can lead to unsubsidized employment at Lisi Aerospace. Lisi Aerospace continues to reach out to the SBWIB job development team for assistance with their hiring needs.
