Starting in February each year and spanning two years in duration, the Thales Graduate Program consists of a variety of learning modules in different locations nationally. These are structured training modules, as well as self-directed learning activities, and on-the-job training; giving you exposure to all the different areas of the business.
As part of the graduate development program, graduates will also have the opportunity to work in project teams and develop innovative solutions for business and customer related problems. The graduate program at Thales will see our graduates travel to various Thales Australia sites for the development modules.
What types of graduates do we recruit at Thales Australia?
The types of graduates we hire will vary from site to site. A list of just some of our graduate offerings are:
What we look for
Talented people who can bring us the right mix of flexibility and innovation, analytical thinking and problem solving as well as communication skills and self-confidence. We look for graduates who step towards taking responsibility and who can bring us impressive business insights and/or technical prowess.
We look for a minimum credit average in your academic transcripts ideally with some work experience while you were studying (internships or paid work).
Step 1: You apply for a position with us via an advertisement (check here and search ‘Australia’ to see whether there are any open roles), or meet with us at a career fair or university event!
Step 2: We’ll have an initial phone conversation with you where we’ll see if we sound like the right fit for each other. We’ll talk about your university studies, any work experience you have and your interest in working for Thales!
Step 3: You will be invited to attend an assessment centre where you’ll learn more about Thales, including our culture and values, some group activities and an individual interview. In some instances, you may just be invited to attend an interview.
Step 5: If successful, we’ll conduct pre-employment checks (medical and police check) and then make an offer!
Thales is committed to promoting and maintaining a workplace culture of shared respect that enables all of us to feel valued, do our best, and remain truly passionate about the place that we work. We are committed to making reasonable adjustments to provide a positive, barrier-free recruitment process and supportive workplace. We encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Wellbeing matters at Thales, and where possible we encourage flexible working.
