Apprentice Hardware Engineer – Embedded Electronic Systems
ENGINEERING IS A STATE OF MIND
You solve problems. You look at things from different angles. You’re curious about the world around you. That’s exactly the way an engineer thinks. And exactly the sort of mindset we’re looking for at Thales.
So, if you want to earn while you learn and develop skills that thousands of businesses desperately want, join our Apprenticeship scheme.
You’ll be making the most of your talents, getting to understand engineering from the ground up; and doing so with the help of one of the biggest and best names in the industry.
AS A THALES APPRENTICE YOU’LL ENJOY:
- On-the-job learning backed up with a dedicated mentor
- Paid work and study – you can earn while working your way to an accredited college course
- Working with the latest technology – creating the future. Be part of a business built on innovation
- Variety of work – no two projects or clients are the same.
What’s more, you’ll be joining hundreds of problem solvers just like you. People who take technology, add in their expertise, and create groundbreaking solutions for the Aerospace, Space, Transportation, Defence and Security industries.

WHAT DO I GET OUT OF BEING AN APPRENTICE?
We want you to be the best you can possibly be. So first off, we’ll make sure you get plenty of experience – getting you close to projects that will boost your raw talent.

What’s more, we’ll send you on two, five-day residential training courses in the Lake District that will give you the chance to develop other skills – like teamwork, communication and leadership – and get to know other people on the scheme.
