At Thales, we work in diverse sectors generating exciting and creative solutions for our customers. We believe the best way we can serve our people as well as our customers is to ensure that we continuously work to build an environment in which you and all your colleagues feel respected for who you are and the value that your individuality brings to the organisation. Collectively, Thales people make the company and its culture what it is and we all deserve to feel that we belong and can be at our best.

We are striving to create a workplace in which you can authentically Be You, With Us. This requires on-going, deliberate attention from all of us and is something you'll have the opportunity to help shape as we share much more about this in the months and years ahead.

As a business we provide CAREERS and not only jobs. With Thales employing 80,000 employees in 68 countries our mobility policy enables thousands of employees each year to develop their careers at home and abroad, in their existing areas of expertise or by branching out into new fields.
