What skills and professions are in demand in the hydrogen sector?

France Hydrogène surveyed over 80 key professions in the hydrogen sector, including technical and scientific competencies: mechanical engineering, process engineering, industrial electrical and computer engineering, fluid mechanics; and operational competencies: installation, assembly, mechanical, etc.

The surveyed professions encompass all fields (design, production, commissioning, operation, maintenance) and all training levels (secondary diploma, higher technical study at Bac+2 to Bac+5 and above) with or without basic knowledge of hydrogen.

As a manufacturer of hydrogen stations, the professions surveyed at HRS were in electrical and mechanical engineering, fluid mechanics, piping, metalwork, and support services: after-sales service, supply chain, business, finance, HR, communication, etc.

HRS advertises job offers in its engineering and R&D design office, its industrial production teams, and its support services.

Having identified short-staffed areas such as pipe fitting and cable fitting, in 2023 HRS launched its first in-house training centre dedicated to the hydrogen professions: the HRSchool.
