Project Management Degree Apprenticeship
PROJECT MANAGEMENT DEGREE APPRENTICESHIP
Learn key project management skills and get professionally qualified to become one of our Project Controllers.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
- Enthusiasm for project management
- Fast learner and motivated
- Team skills
Beyond your academic qualifications, we'll be looking for evidence that you're genuinely interested in developing a career in project management.
You'll be articulate, numerate, analytical, driven and a fast learner – someone who's good at engaging people. We'll also be looking for evidence of motivation, so we’ll want to hear about your achievements outside of school.
Despite the size of our company, we all enjoy working with other people. So, we'll be interested in how you've worked well in a group, whether that's at school, with your family, in a sports team, at work, in voluntary organisations, such as the Guides, Scouts or Cadets, or as part of religious or community activities.
WHAT YOU COULD BE DOING:
Project Controllers ensure our projects deliver on our commitments so they’re fundamental to keeping our customers happy and our business successful. These projects could include bringing a new gas turbine engine to market or overseeing the building of a new test bed, or creating a new manufacturing facility. All of which are huge challenges, and require immense talent.
Project management roles combine many skills, and you might think going to university is the only way to get them. There is an alternative. On our Project Management Degree Apprenticeship programme, you can develop all the skills you need as you combine learning theory with gaining practical, real-life experience and, unlike universities, we’ll pay you to do it.
As part of our team, you’ll have support from expert mentors as you work towards a Honours Degree in Project Management. You’ll also gain a firm foundation in project techniques, and complete placements in various areas of the company. These are normally six months each, giving you a real chance to get under the skin of different parts of Rolls-Royce and prepare for your first role as a Project Controller.
We open for applications: 4th October 2017 – 2nd March 2018.
