Must read

BENGALURU: French multinational firm Thales on Monday said it will hire more than 500 people in India for its engineering centres in Bengaluru and Noida as part of a global recruitment plan to onboard more than 12,000 new employees.
“In 2023, Thales plans to hire more than 12,000 new employees to support its strong growth trajectory in its three core markets: Aerospace, Defence and Security, and Digital Identity and Security. The Group will be hiring all over the world and expects to take on 5,500 new employees in France, 550 in India, 1,050 in the UK, 600 in Australia, and 540 in the US,” a statement issued here read.
It said the plan is further expanding from 2022, which saw a “record level of recruitment” with 11,500 new hires — 50% more than in 2021 — worldwide. “And, the success was in creating jobs during the Covid-19, particularly by continuing hiring for the engineering centres in Bengaluru and Noida,” the firm said.
For its sites in Bengaluru and Noida, the firm is recruiting people on permanent or fixed-term contracts as well as providing several internal mobility opportunities in Thales in India and across the globe.
“At these sites, Thales is mainly seeking hardware engineers, software engineers, systems architects, experts in digital technologies and project managers, offering them the opportunity to help to build a safer, greener, more inclusive world,” the firm added.
Pointing out that it has been working to improve the gender balance in its workforce, the firm said in2022, women accounted for 25% of new hires in India, and represented 22% of the Group’s India workforce.
“In addition, Thales lays particular emphasis on nurturing future talent through internships. In India, for example, 80 students have already joined as interns this month. These opportunities can be an important springboard to permanent employment for these young people: Each year, about 80% of the students on work-study and internship programmes are hired in engineering roles on fixed or indefinite term contracts,” it said.
Claiming that it was inventing the future in 68 countries, Thales said innovation was part of building a future that can be trusted by harnessing talents of 35,000 R&D engineers and a portfolio of 20,000 patents in specialised fields such as quantum technologies, AI, lasers, cybersecurity and more.
“In 2023, for the 10th year, Thales was listed as one of the world’s 100 most innovative companies, in Clarivate’s Top 100 Global Innovator 2023, a global benchmark for innovation. With its broad range of businesses, and an industrial and academic footprint spanning across 68 countries, Thales offers a wealth of long-term and highly diversified career opportunities.
Thales expanded its India presence recently (February 22) by opening its 1st Design Center, which is an extension of Thales’ Engineering Competence Centre in Noida and will be a hub for innovation, research, and development in the country.
