Thales Graduate Program

Thales


Graduates are the future of our business

Whether you’re involved in creating the myriad systems and products our customers need, or are driving success in one of our business functions, you’ll play a vital role in our organisation. In return, we’ll make sure you get all the investment, encouragement and support you need to reach your full potential.

Engineering & Technology Programmes

Ingenuity and innovation are what make our business tick and keep us at the forefront of a very competitive industry. From Aerospace, Maritime and Transportation to Defence and Security, we bring our expertise to the widest range of technical challenges. And the opportunities we offer the best and the brightest are as diverse as our business itself. So whatever your background – be it in engineering, mathematics, physics or technology – you can rely upon being stretched and challenged in any one of our key disciplines. The Engineering Graduate Development Programme runs parallel to your engineering role and forms the backbone of your professional development and will be supplemented by a structured training plan. You’ll also be set challenges that you’ll complete as part of a team with graduates on other sites, giving you and your peers the chance to innovate for the organisation and put your learning into practice.

Business & Finance Programmes

Of course, engineering doesn’t have a monopoly on breaking new ground and doing things differently. We also need the biggest business brains to keep things running like clockwork.  Our Business and Finance Programmes will give you an invaluable insight into our business, plus the chance to complete a host of exciting challenges. Any degree discipline is acceptable for our Business Programme, although a finance-related degree is a must for our Finance Programme. We also look for stand-out ambition, intellect and commercial savvy.  On our Business and Finance Programmes, you will be allowed to shape your career, develop your own personal effectiveness and work towards a relevant professional qualification.

Graduate Scheme Requirements

Thales


Being yourself means being the right fit.

Nurturing talent and giving it the freedom and space to grow is one of the things we do best here at Thales. We look for people who can bring us the right mix of flexibility and innovation, analytical thinking and problem solving, communication skills and self-confidence. People who aren’t afraid to take responsibility and who can bring us impressive business insight or technical prowess.  People who are at their best working as part of a team and forging the strong working relationships that make all of our lives – and jobs – easier.  As far as the basics are concerned, you’ll need at least a credit average. Apart from that, security clearance may be required to undertake work on many of our projects. You can find out more details about which roles this applies to on our website.

Learning & Development

Thales


We’re committed to refining raw graduate potential into the innovative, effective professionals who will grow our business.

Our Graduate Development Program, in conjunction with on-the-job training, is intended to transform your talents. The main training elements will be interactive and experiential, allowing you time and space to explore the areas in which you excel and those you need to develop. Not only will you be provided with excellent training from the brightest minds in our organisation, you’ll have access to further technical and professional learning opportunities and courses to broaden and deepen your expertise. Throughout the program, you’ll also have the opportunity to work with fellow graduates on innovation projects, enabling you to develop new skills whilst building important networks with fellow graduates and business leaders. In addition to this, as part of our graduate program you will have the opportunity to work on a highly recognised fundraising program for Thales supporting Legacy Australia.

Support

Over the course of the program, you’ll cover a lot of ground and be given progressively more complex tasks and responsibility – but you’ll have plenty of support. You will be given a mentor throughout the graduate program and also guidance along the way from your local HR teams. Role-specific training will be arranged by local HR departments and your line manager. Our own corporate university (called The Learning Hub) also runs courses and you’ll have access to a range of over 3,000 e-learning modules too.

Career

Our graduate program is for 2 years but you won’t be offered a 2 year contract - you will be coming on-board as a permanent employee of Thales and can apply for any of the myriad opportunities within our diverse, global organisation. We also support memberships throughout your career with relevant organisations such as Engineers Australia and the Australian Institute of Project Management.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Thales


Thales is an international powerhouse of talent and human endeavour, encompassing a rich variety of professional backgrounds and national cultures.  Being a responsible corporate citizen is in our DNA. Together, we see the benefit in doing the right thing for our people, our environment, our communities and our business.

Our People

We look to attract and retain the best talent.  We invest in our people too, helping them to develop professionally and personally through extensive training programmes. We also provide great employment conditions because the health and safety of our people always comes first.

Our Communities

Thales Australia has a multi-year partnership with Legacy, one of Australia's oldest and most iconic charitable institutions. Legacy is a unique organisation dedicated to caring for the widows and dependents of Australia's war veterans.  The partnership is Thales Australia’s most significant community initiative to date, and we actively support the charity’s numerous activities.  We has enormous respect for the members of the Australian Defence Force, past and present. We have very close ties to the ADF; a number of our employees are reservists on active duty, while others are ex-service personnel. We appreciate everything the ADF’s men and women do every day to protect our country, and the sacrifices they make on our behalf.  We will do whatever we can to help raise both awareness and funds, and we urge all Australians to get behind this worthwhile cause.

Our Values

  • Accountable and committed to excellence
  • Customer trust
  • Developing our people
  • One team, one Thales
  • Agile and innovative

Our Environment

We combine our technological expertise and creative talents, and collaborate to actively protect our natural environment. We make the most of every single one of our resources, and we’re working at ways to reduce our power and water consumption, as well as our CO2 emissions.

Our Business

We abide by the law and act with integrity at all times. “Thales has put in place a stringent, proactive policy of social responsibility and attaches the utmost importance to ethical business practices with respect to customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders, financial markets, civil society and the environment.”

Patrice Caine, Thales Group CEO.

The Thales Foundation

As an extension of the Group’s core mission to make the world a safer place, the Thales Foundation aims to draw on Thales’s innovative flair and technology expertise to benefit society in the areas of education and humanitarian crises.  In each of these areas of focus, the Foundation aims to help society to prepare for the future. In the field of education, the objective is to anticipate the major changes that flow down from disruptive technologies. The Foundation promotes science, innovation and new models of teaching and learning.  Focusing on children and teachers in primary and secondary education, we’re working to ensure that everybody has access to the same opportunities and teaching methods.  In the field of humanitarian crises, the Foundation focuses on helping humanitarian organisations respond effectively in emergency situations.  We’re working to support relief organisations and at-risk populations through projects that reduce people’s vulnerability, by mitigating risks of natural and environmental disasters and enhancing preparation for potential emergency situations.

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity diversity icon

Thales


We hire people from a variety of backgrounds and take active steps to fight all forms of discrimination. Diversity is a way of life for a global, multidisciplinary organisation like Thales. We actively promote interaction between staff members with different backgrounds, cultures and experiences and we recognise that diversity and cohesion translate into better performance.

Thales

We are a global organisation, and our diverse range of employees across our 56 countries of operation help us to understand our customers better. Plus, having four or five nationalities working together in the same team generates a range of different points of view that can inspire new ideas and promote innovation!  Every member of a Thales team has an equal voice.

Thales has long been engaged in the fight against all forms of discrimination based on age, disability, gender or prejudice, and our employees share this commitment. 

We actively promote equality of opportunity in recruitment, development and career advancement.  Faced with the fourth industrial revolution, Thales has a unique opportunity with generations of employees from all over the world, of all backgrounds, to thrive in a world driven by data, artificial intelligence and robotics.
