Employee-owned and independent

It’s a level playing field at Thomson, where the people get the chance to own the company after one successful year with us. You don’t pay for this; you earn it and reap the rewards, as Thomson is an Employee Owned Trust.

We invest heavily in our people to develop internal talent, and the advancement opportunities are limitless. There’s no glass ceiling for anyone.

We’re a friendly and supportive bunch, united by our shared values, and committed to working collaboratively to achieve success.


Investing in futures

Thomson believes in building talent from the bottom up, providing many opportunities for graduates and investing in their training to become technical experts with progression opportunities to become the future leaders of Thomson.
