Thales' goal is to be an employer of choice, recognised as offering a broad range of job opportunities in a setting that encourages individual initiative and personal and professional development. There is no such thing as a typical Career path within Thales but through it's two core HR values, mobility and training & development Thales offers tailored career paths to each individual within the company.
- Our mobility policy enables 5,000 employees each year, to develop their careers at home and abroad, in their existing areas of expertise or by branching out into new fields. Employees can progress by following either management or technical career paths.
- Our training and development is primarily managed through the corporate training facility, Thales University, which provides a range of technical and management programmes, suitable for all levels of experience. All managers meet regularly with individual team members to review together their career aspirations and development prospects.
In an increasingly competitive marketplace, employees are actively encouraged to move between job categories and geographic regions so that the company can continue to adapt. Mobility is one of the mainstays of the company's human resource policy. Job mobility is supported by training mentoring programmes and hands-on experience in the new job a minimum of six months.
A career support and advice centre, the opportunities Forum, was created in June 2000 to assist any Thales employee wishing to benefit from the mobility policy.
The company also set up Career1st as an international fast-track development programme for young graduates and professionals with up to five years' relevant experience with Thales or elsewhere.
Thales has a group wide recruitment process, which enables us to treat your application in a transparent and efficient way, respecting our tight internal deadlines.

Thales believes that building a successful career path depends on specialisation and the ability to maintain ad develop a set of skills to guarantee future employability. The company therefore pursues a very active training policy designed to meet the collective requirements of continuous improvement and change management, while taking employees' individual aspirations and professional development objectives fully into consideration.
