Thales’s recruitment drive continues apace
In 2019, Europe's largest technology company is focusing on digital security to help invent the world of tomorrow - a world of autonomous systems and smart interconnected sensors. Thales will be recruiting all around the world, focusing mainly in Europe (Portugal, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands), Australia, Southeast Asia, India, the United States and Canada.
About 70% of new hires will be engineers and managers to work in R&D, manufacturing, customer service and bid and project management. Thales is especially keen to attract experts in the four key digital technologies, with 400 jobs in cybersecurity and 200 in artificial intelligence.
In terms of backgrounds and profiles, Thales places great emphasis on diversity and inclusion, which we believe is an important driver of creativity. The company is also keen to employ junior and newly graduated profiles, projecting the sustained growth of the structure in the various business areas.
