Job Details

When you’re building, manufacturing, inspecting or repairing some of the most advanced engines and power systems in the world, you need to be an expert at what you do. That’s why we invest so much in training our Advanced Engineering Apprentices and offer the sort of real-world experience you can’t get anywhere else.

Join us and you’ll contribute to our pioneering work, getting up close with our amazing products. You can expect all the training and qualifications you need to get your ideas noticed, and the support to develop your skills and knowledge. We’ll help you shape your future and build a great career.                 

What you’ll do

In your first year, you’ll gain a strong foundation in the practical skills you need – either at our Apprentice Academy in Derby, or with one of our approved training providers across the UK. Over the following three years, you’ll broaden and deepen your knowledge through a range of attachments within one of our businesses, Civil Aerospace, Defence or Control Systems, all the while working towards completing your Apprenticeship Standard and gaining relevant engineering qualifications.

This is hands-on work. And whether you’re producing, building or maintaining Rolls-Royce products, or making and maintaining the tools we need to a high standard, you’ll be making a big impact. Throughout your apprenticeship you can expect to train on state-of-the-art products, equipment and machinery. All while being guided and supported by engineering experts.

You’ll be working on live projects and earn as you learn through formal training as well as practical experience.

What could you become?

We have roles in Fitting, Machining, Maintenance, Welding, Inspection, Instrumentation and Electrical – you’ll develop specialist skills in your chosen area.

What you'll need

You’ll need a minimum of 4 GCSEs (or equivalent) at grade 4/C which must include Maths, English Language, Science and one other subject at grade 4/C.

For roles in Scotland, you’ll need 4 National 5s in Maths, English and Physics plus one other subject at grade A-C.

Beyond your qualifications, we want to see evidence that you're genuinely interested in the practical side of engineering or hands on activities. For example, we'd like to hear about how you tinker with cars, bikes or motorbikes; or about an engineering project you've done at school or work, or a club you've been involved with. We'll provide you with a fantastic framework and all the opportunities you need to progress, but it'll be up to you to lead own your development. So, you must be full of initiative, adaptable, eager to learn and driven to succeed.

What you'll get

On top of a competitive salary, you can look forward to an excellent range of big-company benefits. But the best reasons to join us are the outstanding career support you'll enjoy from day one, the debt-free qualifications you'll have at the end of it, and the chance to build an amazing career in an environment where you can be yourself and be your best. At Rolls-Royce, you’ll be included, supported, recognised, developed and empowered to succeed.

Who we are

At Rolls-Royce, we pioneer cutting-edge technologies that deliver clean, safe and competitive solutions to meet our planet’s vital energy needs. We believe in the transforming potential of technology to protect our planet, secure our world and explore our universe. That’s why we’re helping lead the way in the transition to a net zero-carbon future for us all.

Company

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.
