It is important to me to work for a company where I can really make a difference. That's why I am with Diehl.Jörn Tietjen Head of General Procurement Production & Facilities, Diehl Group Nuremberg
The Diehl Group is a technology group. Technologies are at the heart of our company, innovations are the driving force. In order to find and implement new ideas for our technologies, we use all our expertise and strength and work hand in hand across all five corporate divisions.
This offers exciting challenges for people who want to make a difference together. For example, conserving valuable resources, making the world safer or creating unforgettable flight experiences for passengers.
If one wants to, one quickly gets a lot of responsibility with us and the opportunity to help shape important issues for the future.
I have been with Diehl since 2007 – most of the time with Diehl Aviation, where many opportunities have opened up for me. In the aviation sector, I initially worked very close to production and then grew into the service sector. I always wanted to take on responsibility. That worked out quite well. Over the years, I held various management positions and was finally responsible for the entire on-site support at the Hamburg location. I had to do a lot for that, but was also supported and took part in an internal Diehl Potential Program for the middle management. In 2020, I wanted to change and moved to the Diehl Group. At the headquarters in Nuremberg, I had the chance to be part of the setup of the new General Procurement department from the very beginning. Today, together with my international team, I am in charge of a section of the purchasing department for the entire Group. In terms of content, it was completely new territory for me and a great challenge – of which there are plenty more in our company.

Globally, sustainably and enthusiastically, we work to conserve resources, secure peace and make flying an experience again.
