You might have heard about Thales, and you may know about some of their work in the defence arena where Thales technology is trusted to protect in the most critical situations. But you may not know Thales isn’t just developing new technology, they’re inventing whole new ways of doing things. In fact, they’re an exciting company at the forefront of delivering trusted solutions that protect people and organisations with customers worldwide.

Their work is impressive and extensive. For example, in aerospace every day more than 130,000 passengers use Thales’ in-flight entertainment systems which equates to around 50 million viewers per year. And they secure the information systems for 19 of the world’s 20 largest banks. In the UK, Thales helps keep railways safer because almost every train in the UK is fitted with their Train Protection & Warning System, whilst on the underground they are upgrading signaling to provide greater capacity and reliability. The work is certainly leading-edge.

Smart ideas to conquer latest challenges

Thales continually reinvests in R&D to a significant degree and the company has a strong passion for innovation and high technology. They also understand the value of good professional development opportunities and meaningful missions and programmes. A real emphasis is put on collaboration and teamwork - strongly valued in their dynamic, highly multicultural environment.

Supporting women into scientific and technical careers

With a footprint in 56 countries including the UK, when it comes to diversity, it’s a way of life for a global 0multidisciplinary company like Thales because they understand that diversity and cohesion translate into better performance.

Thales recruits a significant proportion of their workforce

from engineering faculties, and is working hard to promote initiatives aimed at attracting young women to scientific and technical careers. And, the company is equally welcoming for women who are returning to work.

All over the world, Thales companies play an active role supporting local communities and helping local and regional economies. They’re a great company with exciting work, intelligent teams and an excellent work culture.
