About Rolls-Royce plc

Whether we’re building the world’s most efficient large aero-engine or championing electrification, Rolls-Royce is all about innovation. A career with us means creating cleaner, faster, more competitive power.  It means looking to the future, and shaping the world we live in.

We’ve been pioneering the power that matters for the last 100 years, developing ground-breaking, cutting-edge technologies in our Civil Aerospace, Defence and Power Systems businesses. We employ around 54,500 people across more than 50 countries. And we encourage every single one of them to be themselves. Why? Because we believe that diverse ways of thinking make for better, bolder ideas. We know that the next big innovation could come from the smallest fragment of inspiration. It could come from you.

Internship programmes

Join us on our engineering programmes and you’ll gain lots of practical experience on real projects with real outcomes. You’ll develop your skills, gain new ones and learn from our technical and business experts. Do well, and it could lead to a place on one of our graduate development programmes. And that could bring you a bursary of £1,500 on top of your graduate starting salary and bonus.

Graduate development programmes

We have a range of programmes in our engineering and manufacturing engineering teams. When you join us, you’ll be encouraged to be curious, creative, collaborative and bold, as you embrace new ways of thinking through a series of structured placements. The projects you work on will give you scope to shape our success – and the world around you – as well as preparing you for a future as one of our experts or leaders.

You can look forward to on-the-job training, insights from highly experienced colleagues and opportunities for further development, including professional accreditations and other qualifications. Mentors, careers coaches, line managers and HR professionals will all be on hand to offer you guidance and support.

Business and operations programmes

As we shape the future of our organisation to pioneer the power that matters, we’re reinventing these programmes to offer greater breadth and choice. We’ll be relaunching them all in 2021, so look out for details on our website in Summer 2020.

Beyond tomorrow

For all programmes you should have, (or be expecting) a 2:1 or equivalent in a relevant subject. We’re looking for people who are bold, creative, and innovative. You should be curious and ready to embrace new ways of thinking to solve complex challenges and help us pioneer the power that matters.
