The electronic components manufacturer Thales has announced the recruitment of 200 employees by the beginning of 2023 for its production site at Étrelles (Ille-et-Vilaine). The site, which already employs 600 people, develops and produces equipment and solutions linked to the major defence and aerospace programmes of the Thales group and other equipment manufacturers. It also works with industrial companies in the oil and automotive markets. The positions to be filled concern profiles ranging from no diploma to 5 years of higher education. Some positions are accessible only through dexterity tests. These tests, which are carried out together with public employment service (Pôle emploi), give candidates access to Thales's internal training centres for microelectronics and electronic card manufacturing. 

A previous recruitment announcement for 130 employees in 2021 were recorded in the ERM database (Thales Microelectronics-2021-FR).
