About your future job 

We offer the possibility of working in an exciting and technically challenging domain providing technical training programmes for our customers about maintaining our systems and solutions.

Our systems (or sensors) are radar or electro optical systems containing various technologies and networks, with a combat management system in place to combine the inputs from these sensors to enable users (operators) to control the use of effectors on board the naval platform. Maintenance on our systems typically includes areas like computer clusters, IP networking and security, motor drives, cooling and RF. Depending on the training subject, skills and/or experience are requested in these areas.

In the role of Technical Trainer you will be part of the training team where each member takes care of several systems and/or audiences, during several phases of the systems/solutions lifecycle (initial and repeat courses). Our training programmes focus mainly on different levels of maintainers or operators and can be tailored to fit customer specific requirements. You will work both at our premises and at customer locations (land-based test locations and on board of ships) around the world.

The main tasks are:

  • Specify and develop training plan and material, in cooperation with logistic engineers, technical authors, system test engineers and project teams;
  • Perform setting to works and maintenance tasks including the review of customer manuals to prepare for training deliveries;
  • Deliver training programmes in our Thales International Training Centre or at customer locations.
  • Act as host for our trainees, together with our Welfare Officer and project team;
  • Collect information for our support teams in case of technical and/or performance problems;
  • Participate in services such as system health checks, maintenance and repair.
