Commercial Degree Apprenticeship
COMMERCIAL DEGREE APPRENTICESHIP
Become a Commercial Officer, developing skills to work with customers, partners and suppliers while getting a degree.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
- Enthusiasm for business
- Business Acumen
- Team skills
We expect you to demonstrate a talent for business with an enthusiasm to learn more about contract management.
With financial acumen and the ability to work with contract terms, you’ll be good at engaging with different people. We'll also want to talk to you about times where you’ve shown problem solving skills, so be ready to tell us all about that.
Team working and building effective relationships is key to success in Commercial. We’d like to hear about your experiences in these areas at school, with your family, in a sports team, at work or in voluntary organisations.
WHAT YOU COULD BE DOING:
This is a fantastic opportunity for you to develop your commercial and business skills on real projects. You’ll be involved in diverse business issues as you get to support the existing commercial teams in identifying risks, developing commercial proposals and business solutions, putting in place and managing new business contracts and analysing business cases.
You can expect to gain a detailed insight into how a large, complex company makes a profit and works with its customers, suppliers and partners. Not only that, but you’ll be able to make an impact early on in your career whilst earning a competitive salary.
Over the course of four years, you'll complete a series of placements with our commercial teams in Civil Aerospace based in Derby. You'll also study for a BA (Hons) in Business and Management on a day-release basis. We'll support you every step of the way during this time, with structured placements/learning and development objectives plus mentoring and sponsorship from experienced commercial professionals.
At the end of the four-year programme having completed your degree apprenticeship, you'll be ready to apply to become a Commercial Officer within Rolls-Royce.
We open for applications: 4th October 2017 – 2nd March 2018.
We assess candidates throughout the year, so you may find there is some time between submitting an application and your assessment centre. These will be run between January and February 2018.
WHERE YOU'LL BE BASED:
You’ll enjoy a series of placements in the Civil Aerospace Commercial teams based at our Derby sites.
