Why Rolls-Royce?


Can you imagine being part of the team that powers the UK’s submarines? We’ve provided power for the Royal Navy for over 60 years. And to make sure we continue, we’re leading the research and development of new technologies that will control the nuclear systems of the future.


Join our Submarines team and you won’t only be solving technical challenges across a wide range of systems and applications. You’ll be playing an important role in creating efficient, sustainable power solutions that will keep the UK protected, today and tomorrow.


What’s more, you’ll do it in an environment where you can be yourself. An inclusive, digital-first culture that invests in you, gives you a platform for continuous learning, and access to an incredible breadth and depth of opportunities to grow your career.

The team uses agile scrum methods to develop high integrity solutions using the latest state-of-the-art toolsets. With their all-round support and comprehensive training, you’ll gain the skills to develop requirements, architectures, designs and HDL code for controls functions essential for the protection and monitoring of nuclear propulsion plant. Day to day, your work will include (but isn’t limited to):

To work for the Rolls-Royce Submarines Business an individual has to hold Security Check (SC) clearance without any caveats to that clearance. Rolls-Royce will support the application for Security Clearance if the individual does not currently already have this in place.


Due to the nature of work the Business conducts and the protection of certain assets a person has to be a UK national or in MoD approved cases a Dual National from a non ITAR country.






Rolls-Royce is a global company dedicated to delivering innovation in the air, on land and at sea. Our people are passionate about creating better products and services in the civil and defence aerospace, marine and nuclear markets. Together we’ve set land speed records, developed the world’s most efficient aero engine, designed industry leading eco-friendly ships and powered nuclear submarines.

Our world-class laboratories, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and fast-paced business teams are driven by engineering experts and experienced professionals. However, we don’t deliver best-in-class by relying solely on expertise. We recognise that we need to balance knowledge and rigour with fresh eyes, challenging ideas and novel ways of thinking. That’s why, every year, we hire hundreds of bright, ambitious and innovative interns, graduates, apprentices and school leavers.

We have graduate and intern opportunities in a broad array of Engineering, Operations and Business functions. We also provide a range of Modern or Advanced Apprenticeships, Higher Apprenticeships, Sponsored Degree and school leaver programmes that offer the chance to gain experience at work alongside qualifications at college or university.

Wherever you join – whether you’re engineering on the micron scale, launching new internal systems or scoping out commercial opportunities – we’ll expect you to pursue perfection. That means putting your drive and inventive streak to the test as you work on live projects while taking every chance to suggest improvements, share ideas and make a positive impact – on your team, on our products and on our global business.
