For more than a century, Thales has exploited technology for the nation’s benefit, developing world-leading capabilities that help our customers think smarter and act faster.
We’re a global business with over 7,000 people in the UK, working across every country of the Union. For many years, Thales has contributed to the security and stability of this nation by providing extraordinary technology to our customers in Government and industry. Operating across aerospace, defence, digital security, transport and space, we help keep the nation safe and secure while contributing £1.6bn in economic value each year.
But with such scale comes responsibility. To achieve sustainable growth we must take a holistic approach to our business and create value beyond our bottom line; we need to consider the wider impact of our activities for our customers, employees and communities.
