The North West is the region with the largest concentration of Thales supply chain jobs in the UK, with 1600 in total.
Our Cheadle site in Greater Manchester has over 600 employees on the site and has been part of our business since 1977. It is a centre of excellence for software design and development with teams working on emerging technologies including artificial intelligence.
Our maritime business specialises in sonar systems for submarines, surface warships, and aircraft as well as communications masts and systems for submarines. We also have a large team working for our UK transportation business. Thales’s tram management system will enable Greater Manchester’s Metrolink project to take five million car journeys off local roads every year and increase the number of trips passengers made on the network each day from 55,000 to over 90,000.
In order to support our growth, we are starting an investment programme that will result in a more modern, vibrant work environment for our employees – both current and new.
Yorkshire and the Humber
Thales supports 420 supply chain jobs in Yorkshire and the Humber.
Our site in Doncaster represents a small but integral part of the business, as it supports all internal IT Services across Thales in the UK, as well as delivering connectivity services to the government public services networks.
