When you’re building some of the most advanced engines in the world, the margin for error is, quite literally, microscopic. That’s why we invest so much in training our Practical Apprentices. We provide a salaried job and the support you need to gain nationally-recognised qualifications.

Responsibilities

  • In your first year, you’ll gain a strong foundation in the practical skills you need to work on our products.
  • Over the following three years, you’ll broaden and deepen your knowledge through a range of attachments within a defined business, where you’ll work with and be supported by some of our top engineers.
  • Along the way, you’ll work towards completing your Apprenticeship standard and gain relevant engineering qualifications.
  • This is practical work.
  • So whether you’re producing, building or maintaining Rolls-Royce products, or are 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 some state-of-the-art products, equipment or machinery.
  • All while being guided and supported by engineering experts.

 

Future Prospects

With the chance to get practical experience with our engines or products, we offer the sort of exciting, real-world exposure that you simply can’t get anywhere else.

Reality Check

We are an equal opportunities employer. We’re committed to developing a diverse workforce and an inclusive working environment. We believe that people from different backgrounds and cultures give us different perspectives. And the more perspectives we have, the more successful we’ll be. By building a culture of respect and appreciation, we give everyone who works here the opportunity to realise their full potential.

Skills Required

We’ll want to see creativity, an agile approach and a passion for practical engineering – you’ll need to be keen to get stuck into real work in a factory-based environment. Numeracy is important, and you should be a great team player. You’ll have to learn fast and have the discipline to balance studying for a qualification with the demands of your role.

Qualities Required

Beyond your qualifications, we want to see evidence that you're genuinely interested in developing a career in engineering. For instance, we'd like to hear about how you tinker with cars, bicycles or motorbikes; or about an engineering project you've done at school or work, or a club you've been involved with

Qualifications Required

You’ll need a minimum three GCSEs (or equivalent) in maths and English Language, plus either Engineering, Design & Technology or Science (excluding Biology), all at grade 4 or C or above (obtained or predicted).
