Application Advice:

Ensure that all the skills you have are included in the online application form and to research both the company and the area you will be working in if you get the role. Look at the job specification and research the areas of work highlighted for these will be different for each site.

Interview Advice:

There are always questions asked on how you've shown... but one I had was how to overcome risk and how I managed it. This was slightly different and I really had to think about it and couldn't give an answer immediately. So, have a variety of answers prepared for more than the obvious 'commitment', 'enthusiasm' and 'leadership' questions.

Application Advice:

Demonstrate knowledge of software engineering. Be eager to learn new things.

Interview Advice:

Electronic Warfare Systems Engineer, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance at Thales

Application Advice:

Quality of placements can vary a bit, so make sure you research your role carefully and ask plenty of questions to the interviewer before you sign up - there's nothing worse than finding out that your current placement isn't right for you and you end up twiddling your thumbs for the next few months.

Interview Advice:

"Where do you see yourself in X years? What qualities could you bring to the company? What are your biggest strengths/weaknesses?" and other completely original interview questions are to be expected. Seriously though, just research your role, be COMPLETELY passionate about the job and research the company beforehand - clichéd interview advice, I know, but valid nonetheless.

Contracts Officer, at Thales
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Ensure you are aware of Thales as a company and the high profile projects they are a part of. As Thales are a very large company but not as well known as BAE or Lockheed Martin and therefore if you have knowledge of their projects it shows a genuine effort to show an interest.

Interview Advice:

High dependency on your ability to interact with others and communicate effectively. Assessment centres take a similar structure to that of other Graduate Programs.

Manufacturing Engineer, Optronics at Thales

Application Advice:

Software Engineer, at Thales
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

DO YOUR HOMEWORK!! this is paramount to both Thales and the wider working world. If you turn up to an interview or assessment centre having done no research about the company you will find yourself wanting very early on. Also if you attend something similar purely for practise you will get 100% more out of it if you put some effort in. Just have a basic idea of what the company does and where you would fit in, for extra points if you can say why you want to join that always goes down well.

Interview Advice:

There are 2 interviews along with the standard group and written exercises. The first will be a presentation and then a business interview. My best advice would be to follow the brief you are sent. then structure your presentation around it! then have some basic business competence and you'll be fine. The second is a competency based interview. Again if you can do some work on this before thats ideal, Also don't make something up if you don't have an example. The interviewers do this for a living and will sniff you out, be honest, If you don't have that experience they will ask another question.

Project Management Graduate, Land & Air System at Thales
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

You don't have to know your field or even systems engineering to apply. Systems engineering is a very broad job and welcomes anybody able to apply a systems mindset. Of course some field knowledge and enthusiasm help so don't neglect them entirely but don't worry if your degree is maths, physics, aeronautical engineering or systems engineering - you can learn what you need on the job. Just be sure to show that willingness to learn and to work hard.

Interview Advice:

Enjoy it!
You'll meet a group of potential future contacts, and you'll get a tour and a group activity that is actually quite fun as well as the more scary bits like interviews and written exercises. Find the fun side and you'll come across as far less nervous for the rest of the day.

Don't be afraid to be wrong or show you don't understand instead ask questions of your interviewer until you better understand.

Assessment centre lasting 4-5 hours. Two interviews, two group exercises and an individual test. Contribute as part of the team only if you think your input is valuable, don't waffle. Be honest and open in interviews, concentrate on previous experience and what you've learnt from this.

A lot of the questions I was asked referred to how I've worked in teams. Try to think of different examples that demonstrate different qualities of your work ethic. Examples of leadership are always good too.

Application Advice:

Know exactly what the role will involve, it was very unclear when I applied and 'Sytems Engineer' seems to be a generic term to get people on the team to do any sort of work.

Interview Advice:

Know about the company and what it is involved in. Thales is not very well known, so knowing about the areas they operate in will be an advantage.

Systems Engineer, Sytems at Thales

Application Advice:

Application advice would be to apply for a sales/BD role if that is what suits your personal qualities. This is the function where you get the most opportunitity to progress and have the best opportunities presented to you throughout the general working day. Such as overseas travel and attendance at very senior, high profile meetings/conferences.

I would also suggest applying to work at one of the smaller Thales UK sites. The larger sites are good for a week or so, or to learn about the various aspects of the business but in terms of workload/value/opportunities the smaller sites offer a considerable amount more. They have the more 'family' feel in the office and have more time to share with their graduates therefore not making the graduate feel like they're just swallowed up and in a 'pool' with all of the others.

Interview Advice:

Look up Thales UK on the intranet and understand the business as much as you possibly can. Be enthusiastic and show the willingness to learn. The interviewers feedback was that they just look for the enthusiastic, motivational people who show potential as opposed to those who 'know it all'.

Application Advice:

Interview Advice:

Be able to talk about things you've done outside of work or university studies when asked questions. If you can convince the interviewer you are a dynamic interesting person as well as having the right qualifications your chances of success are far greater than just having good grades. If asked a technical question and you don't know the answer, be honest! You won't be expected to know everything and being open about what you don't know is far better than making something up.

Application Advice:

Having gone through the TRT graduate programme, my key advice would be mainly applicable to those that follow this route. I would strongly advise those that participate in this scheme to make the most of the opportunities they are given. You will definitely get the most rewarding experience if you are active in your development, searching for and ensuring that you get the rotations that give you the greatest development opportunites and the widest experience within Thales. Whilst the support for this at TRT is really good, you are the person with the most to gain and the biggest say in what you do and what you get out of it. Some great advice I have been given is to always ensure you are positioning yourself just outside of your comfort zone.

Interview Advice:

Be informed and interested. Make it clear that you are have great potential; discuss and present things that insipre you and that you are invested in. Whilst technical skills hold weight, the most important factor is whether you will be a good fit to the role you apply for and the role a good fit for you.

Application Advice:

Demonstrate problem solving skills as well as technical knowledge and ability. It's not enough to know a lot of stuff, you need to show you can learn a lot of new stuff. Also remember that aptitude tests are just like any other test, and can be revised for. The more you do the easier they'll get.

Interview Advice:

If you have any kind of general paper on your uni course, go over that before the interview. It's not the knowledge of multitudes of equations that matter, it's the ability to solve a problem that you weren't expecting that should get you through the interview. Also make sure you read the presentation instructions - don't just rehash your final year uni presentation.

Algorithms Engineer, at Thales

Application Advice:

This isn't too difficult, I wasn't quizzed on technical knowledge for the application, rather employability bits like a Situational Judgement Test (SJT) where the answers are mostly common sense. All you need is the right entry requirements and a good CV and this stage should be easy.

The assessment centre isn't difficult either, I had a group based task where we had to co-operate to complete the little 'game' they designed in a given amount of time. Good time-keeping and being diplomatic help here, don't think being the one who says the most or the loudest is going to help. It's not how well you do the task, it's how well you work with others and listen to them.

Interview Advice:

The interview isn't too bad either, you are asked to do a presentation on your final year project, which you might already have on hand. Of the two interviews I sat, none of the interviewers had in-depth knowledge of the topic, so it's more to do with how you present and explain rather than how clever you really are. The rest of the interview seems to be informal, I wasn't asked any technical questions and instead it was mostly about the company, about me, and about how the graduate scheme works. This shouldn't be too difficult to get through.

Try to highlight your strengths and use this as an opportunity to showcase your achievements. Definitely research the company, Thales is Global and has alot of history. If you can show some recognition of what the work involves and what the company does it will help.

Interview Advice:

During assessment centres it is all about working with others and your own personality. Don't try and take charge and tell people what to do, they don't want to hire a manager. Be engaging and speak to others, if you have an idea then explain it to others. Use dialog to make decisions as a collective. In the individual exercises, it is about quality not quantity. Take your time and get it right rather than rushing and getting it wrong, points get taken away for incorrect answers as well!

Once through the online assessment, there is an assessment centre day. This involved a group role play task - be yourself, show your strengths and make sure you are heard. They can't assess you if you don't do anything!

Following the role play there is a written assessment, much like anything you would have done at school/university, so thats not frightening.

Then there is the standard psychometric tests.

Its about 5hrs and do not be overly scared, there assessors are there to help!

Interview Advice:

Be calm!
The interview is absolutely fine. They are there to find out more about you, and whether you'd fit into the company as a person, not necessarily out there to catch you out and make you feel stupid!

Application Advice:

The Three major points I would send across is, you have to have a passion for Aerospace as that is the driving key to providing you with opportunities.
The second would be to PROGRAMMING/SOFTWARE, there is a substantial amount of it whichever engineering Job you go to, whether that's simple CAD programs or Object orientated Programming (C++, JAVA). You don't need to be exceptional but having a one program down in the book is helpful even if it's Basic... no pun intended
Thirdly I would also say social-cultural skills is a must, as you need it whether that's being professional in manners or social awareness in a diferent country due to a change in culture. As engineering, especially Aerospace would require some sort of travel eventually!

Interview Advice:

4 Interview tips- Keen, Well informed, Knowledge base, Calm.

KEEN overrules! It can change the mood of the interview especially if you have sveveral members of a board sitting in front of you, and links with the Third tip -> KNOWLEDGE BASE. Because if you're unsure and you try to at least answer it then you've tried.
WELL INFORMED is a great thing - having the knowledge to answer 95% of the questions correctly will out you in good stead, it's the largest reason why they would choose you over another keen person!
The second tip WELL INFORMED - Keeping upto date with the latest news and constantly checking the websityte fo any thing relatively New will show you're not just keen about the job but also very interested how well the company is doing and any (Political, Environmental, Socio-cultural, Technological, Legal, and ethical) issues going on in and around the company (PESTLE). Last of all calm and collected shows the employer you're confident, also helps you to answer questions smoothly and gives you time to think, rather than rushing in.

Application Advice:

Find your selling point that makes you different, Thales are keen to employ graduates that add diversity to the company. This year they took on 35 business graduates, and during meet and greet events we discovered that the majority of graduates had not studied business and there was a huge variety in the degree background.
Think carefully about what skills your degree gave you that you would not necessarily consider to be useful 'in the world of business'. As part of my degree I had a large proportion of data analysis which i apply regularly within my job, and sets me aside from the rest of my year groups intake.

Application Advice:

Apply early, Thales applications get picked up extremely quickly after being advertised.

Also make sure you justify any statement about yourself with experience/an example, there's nothing better that your interviewers want to see than real world examples of your skills being used.

Interview Advice:

Just be yourself!

The structures for the assessment centres mean that a lot of the interviewing/assessing is purely on your personality, and your workplace mentality.

Obviously there will be a competency interview, to make sure you fit the skills required, but in general just try and speak as if you are talking to your friends.

Application Advice:

Research, research, research! The CEO said himself that Thales is one of the biggest unknown companies in the world. It is not until you actually start working for them that you realise just how big the company actually is.

Interview Advice:

Again it's all about research.

You need to be able to show the interviewer that you have an understanding of the company, they do not expect you to know everything but focus on any new projects that the company is currently working on or bidding for.

Another top tip is to find out who is interviewing you then find a project that they have worked on previously or currently working on, talking about this in your interview will only help your chances.

Brush up on your Mathematics - I was caught a bit short when asked about some maths bits, but managed to get by. Also, show that you're able to think of ideas and solutions to problems quickly.

Application Advice:

Research the company - vague statements about Thales will not help. Know about the size, scope and chosen industries for Thales, and pick some projects which personally interest you.

Interview Advice:

Be confident but don't lie or brag, I was at a group interview where it was obvious people were doing this and was not well received by the other applicants and (I assume) the assessors.

Ask questions - if you do not know the answer, say so, then ask for the interviewer to explain. Most interviewers will respect the fact you were open that you didn't know, and be more than willing to explain things. Trying to bluff your way through is obvious and ill-advised.

Interview Advice:

Try to be as diverse as possible with your answers to competency based interview questions. Using the same example time and time again will not give employers the confidence that you will be able to adapt to different situations in the workplace.

Application Advice:

Read through the job requirements carefully and try to tailor your application/experience around that. Just aimlessly listing your knowledge won't help if you can't find an application for it.

Interview Advice:

Knowledge of the company is paramount, they will have expected you to have done some research.

Also honesty works well. If you aren't sure of a technical answer don't try and wing it as they will have the knowledge to call you up on it. It is more important to talk the question through with the interviewer and show the direction of your thinking. They will more than likely help you to get near the answer but the main thing is to see how you deal with problem solving, your approach.
