Thales touches all our lives. Did you know that our secure network communications expertise is behind 3.7 billion secure electronic financial transactions (BACS), safeguarding about £1 trillion each year? Or that we’re a leader in onboard equipment for civil and military aircraft, particularly in-flight entertainment? Or that every time you take a train journey, we’re behind the technology that helps you arrive safely at your destination?
Every single day, organisations in all areas of aerospace, defence, security and transport trust Thales UK and our 8,500 people to deliver. With 68,000 employees and operations in 50 countries, Thales also has an exceptional international footprint. Our 25,000 engineers and researchers design, develop and deploy equipment, systems and services to meet the most complex security requirements.
Now we’re looking to add up to 130 talented graduates to our UK team, from Software Engineers to Finance, RF Engineers to Business Management. Whether you join us in a specific engineering role or follow a rotational programme in business or finance, your development will be underpinned by our four-year Graduate Development Programme (GDP). This will give you a broad base of training, real responsibility from the outset, exposure to leading-edge projects and a thorough insight into our fascinating business. You’ll also find there is a robust support structure to help you gain professional qualification and guide your progression.
Ready to play a real role from day one with a world leader in technology? We’re looking for self-confident and flexible team players with a flair for innovation, analysis, problem solving, planning and organising. A 2:1 degree or equivalent is usually required, although a 2:2 is sufficient for some engineering roles.
