Job Details

On our Manufacturing Engineering Degree Apprenticeship, you’ll get to work alongside world-class engineers, and study towards a bachelor’s degree. All while making a real contribution. 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

You'll start by completing foundation training at our Apprentice Academy in Derby or a local further education college near your site, which will give you a broad understanding of manufacturing engineering principles. After this, you’ll be ready to embark on a series of six-month placements. You’ll complete internal job-specific training courses over the remaining three years as well as studying for your university qualification on day-release. All of this will give you practical knowledge in areas such as introducing new products or controlling change to existing manufacturing processes, acquiring new technology and continuous improvement. You’ll learn how to manage projects and costs, how to design and validate manufacturing processes, solve engineering problems, and implement quality assurance methods.

What you’ll do

Our Manufacturing Engineers are amongst the best in their field. To develop some of the most advanced manufacturing processes in the world, they have to be. Turning our designs into reality, you’ll learn from engineers, customers, suppliers and operations specialists in every part of Rolls-Royce around the globe, so you’ll enjoy plenty of exposure as you gain the experience you need to become a vital part of our future. All while taking advantage of our exceptional training and amazing opportunities to grow your career.

What you’ll need

Two A Levels (or equivalent) in Maths, plus Physics, Chemistry or Engineering at grade B (must include Maths) plus one other A Level at grade C in any subject or a Level 3 Extended BTEC at DDD plus A Level Maths at grade B. You will also need five GCSEs including Maths grade 5/B, English Language grade 5/B and three others at Grade C/4 or above.

Creativity and an agile approach are both important. But above all, you'll need to be passionate about manufacturing engineering, analytical, highly motivated and, most importantly, endlessly curious about how things are made and processes work.

Depending on your location, you may study for your degree at a university where you’ll be required to pass an entry assessment as part of our recruitment process. Please check the job description for the location you are interested in to see if this applies.

What you’ll get

  • A competitive starting salary
  • A competitive pension and 33 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays)
  • Outstanding career support from day one
  • A debt-free bachelor’s degree and nationally recognised qualifications

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.
