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. Together, we ponder the positively perplexing problems our customers face across Aerospace, Space, Transportation, Defence and Security. Everywhere safety and security matter, we deliver.

The R&D team is our innovation pipeline. A diverse network of scientists and engineers, together they provide us with the ideas we need to develop the next generation of cutting-edge products. Join this programme, and you’ll spend two years rotating between various research teams. As well as gaining a broad range of technical experience, you’ll get to discover where your talents and interests lie, offering the possibility of joining one of these specialist teams after your Graduate Development Programme role is complete.

Our work here is incredibly varied. We have teams working on algorithms, mathematical problem solving, software development, digital electronics, radio frequency and mixed signal design to name just a few. So, if you have at least a 2.1 in electronic engineering, computer science, software, maths or physics, there could be a place for you here. Equally as important is the need to be a strong team player and a creative problem solver.

You might not realise it but our work touches most people’s lives, every single day. From the Thales fare collection systems in 100 cities around the world to in-flight entertainment systems for passenger planes and state-of-the-art equipment for military aircraft, the scope and scale of our problem-solving abilities know no bounds.

Together, we’re driven by doing things differently and making things better. Together, we’ll fire your imagination and fulfil your potential. Together, we are Thales. Join us.
