Here's what recent grad, Lydia thinks

 

Your career here is your own

"Just go for it! That’s my advice if you’re thinking of applying. The best thing about Thales is the constant flow of new opportunities. I tend to say ‘yes’ to anything that presents itself as that’s the best way to push myself and learn new things. Your career here is your own – what you do or don’t do to develop yourself is down to you. But I would say, make sure you understand the full complexity of Thales, not just the business unit you’re applying to – you could end up moving round the company after your graduate scheme."

 

The social life at Thales has been fantastic for me,

"The Thales graduate community is highly active in London, and we also meet up with graduates in Crawley for larger out of office social events. The social life at Thales has been fantastic for me, having moved down to London after graduating and knowing few people outside work. There are plenty of team socials, which are a lot of fun and make for a stronger working team. I’m also getting involved in Thales Social Media, which is really interesting. We’re in the early stages of planning to source and create content specifically for Early Careers (apprentices, students and graduates)."
