Combining a unique diversity of expertise, talents and cultures, our architects design and deliver extraordinary high technology solutions. Solutions that make tomorrow possible, today.

From the bottom of the oceans to the depth of space and cyberspace, we help our customers think smarter and act faster - mastering ever greater complexity and every decisive moment along the way.


We’re inventing the future, right here, right now, at Thales. By combining the curiosity to explore, the intelligence to question and the vision to create, we’re transforming the world around us.

If you’re a graduate who’s keen to embark on a stimulating career, or an undergraduate looking for an internship, together we can ponder positively perplexing problems across Aerospace, Space, Transportation, Defence and Security.

We have a host of opportunities available across Systems Engineering, Software Engineering, Information Security, Hardware Engineering, Research & Development, Electronic Engineering, Business and Finance, exactly as you’d expect from a world-leader in the field of engineering and technology.

Our work touches all of our lives, every single day. Everywhere it matters, we deliver. From our high-capacity SATCOM systems which allow airline passengers to use their mobile and get online at 30,000 feet to our track record in supplying cutting-edge technology to the Royal Navy for over 100 years, the scope and scale of our problem-solving abilities know no bounds. Our fare collection systems are in 100 cities around the world, handling more than 50 million transactions per day. We have also supplied identity management systems in more than 25 countries and, in the UK, we maintain 95% of Network Rail’s telecommunications infrastructure.

Together, we clarify the confoundingly complicated problems our customers face. Together, we conquer the confusingly complex and translate it into ingenious, game-changing solutions. Together, we’ll fire your imagination and fulfil your potential. So whether you’re a graduate, undergraduate or school leaver, join us. Because together, we are Thales.
