At Rolls-Royce, we pioneer cutting-edge technologies that deliver the cleanest, safest and most competitive solutions to our planet’s vital power needs. This is your chance to be involved in work that shapes the way we live. On this degree apprenticeship, you’ll get to study for a bachelor’s degree in an engineering discipline and work alongside world-class engineers. All while making a real contribution to an advanced engineering business. It’s a great way to earn, learn and grow in confidence as part of a supportive team. And it provides you with the perfect platform to go on to even bigger challenges.


The programme


To start with, our four-year programme will see you undertake foundation training, which will give you a broad appreciation of engineering principles. From here, you’ll be ready to embark on a series of placements that will give you practical and technical knowledge in a range of different areas. At the same time, you’ll study towards vocational engineering qualifications and for a bachelor’s degree.


What you’ll do


As well as comprehensive on-and-off-the-job training and a competitive salary, our Engineering Degree Apprenticeship will give you the experience you need to become a vital part of our future. You'll be exposed to elements across the engineering lifecycle on placements, so you'll get to experience everything from design and prototyping through to supporting our fleet in service. It's an opportunity to play your own part in creating ever-better solutions, for example, in the design phase you could contribute to conceptual designs that solve problems at a product system or component level. We’ll make sure you have plenty of exposure as your placements teach you what it means to be an engineer. You can expect to work in Civil Aerospace or Defence as you deliver projects in state-of-the-art environments and learn from some of the most brilliant engineers in the world.


What you’ll get


A competitive salary starting from £13,125 a year


A competitive pension, and 33 days’ holiday per year (inclusive of Bank Holidays)


Career support from day one


A debt-free bachelor’s degree


What you’ll need


You’ll need to be passionate about engineering. So, you should be analytical, highly motivated and, most importantly, curious about how things work. You’ll also be a real team player, and be able to prove it. Beyond that, we’ll want to see numeracy, drive and the ability to learn quickly – all things you’ll have shown through your impressive exam results. You’ll need three A-levels (or equivalent) at grade C or above in Maths and Physics, Chemistry or Engineering, plus one other subject (obtained or predicted). Alternatively, an engineering-focused level 3 extended BTEC at MMM minimum. You’ll also need GCSE (or equivalent) minimum grade C/4 in English Language and Maths.


Who we are


Whether we’re building the world’s most efficient large aero-engine or supporting NASA missions on the edge of space, Rolls-Royce is all about innovation. We invest £1 billion every year into research and development, and file more patents annually than any other company in the UK. Working at Rolls-Royce means being part of a global team of 50,000 bold, curious pioneers, creating cleaner, faster, more competitive power. It means looking to the future, and shaping the world we live in.
