Message from Peter Lawley - Chief Executive Legacy Australia

 “Legacy values our partnership with Thales and the opportunity to be part of the Thales Graduate Program. We appreciate the significant effort and time donated by Thales graduates  to raise funds and awareness for Legacy’s work. The enthusiasm, energy and creativity of all  the grads is commendable. A huge thank you from us all at Legacy!”

Message from Chris Jenkins - CEO Thales

“Our company has very close ties to the ADF. A number of our employees are reservists on active duty, while others are ex-service personnel. We appreciate everything the ADF’s men and women do every day to protect our country, and the sacrifices they make on our behalf.”

“Legacy recognizes and honours our ex-servicemen, and the work it does in providing support to their families cannot be underestimated. I will be encouraging all our          employees to take an active part in supporting Legacy’s activities throughout the year.”

Thales Graduates fundraising for Legacy

As part of their 2-year Graduate Development Program, Thales Australia graduates participate in a team based project to raise awareness and funds for Legacy, our national charity partner.

Teams are typically  3-4 persons and arranged by site location.   Teams are encouraged to liaise with their local Legacy Club members and conduct a range of activities at their local sites and within their communities to promote Legacy’s profile along with the Thales/Legacy relationship.   The project runs from February through until December of their first year with a major focus around Legacy Week in early September.   On completion of the project Teams are asked reflect on their project outcomes and present their findings to Thales Australia management.

The project is designed to help graduates develop important business skills including project management, communication and presentation skills, networking and stakeholder management, collaboration and working in teams, idea generation and time management.
