Learning & Development


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.


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.


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.
