Whether you see yourself as an aspiring engineer, technical expert or business leader, our programmes can help you become who you want to be. Whichever you choose, you’ll be aligned to one of our business areas, Civil Aerospace, Defence, Electrical, Group IT, Group Business Services or Submarines.
Learning-focused, our programmes concentrate on giving you real-world experiences and the chance to work on live projects across our engineering, digital and business functions.
Whether you join us on our Business and Enterprise or Engineering and Technology programme, you’ll have the flexibility to curate your own experience. You’ll develop your own understanding of the opportunities within our business before you specialise in an area of expertise. It’s all about growth and how we can help you be the best you can be.
Our 12-month internships offer a similar experience and our 10-week summer internships provide a fantastic insight into life and work at Rolls-Royce. We also offer 6-month internships, if this fits better with your university course requirements.
Our top tips for landing a work experience placement
Getting work experience with a well known company can be quite competitive. Here’s four top tips that will help give you an edge during your application.
- Tailor your communication. If you are applying for more than one work experience position, ensure that each of your applications is unique. Bonus points if you also shuffle your CV and experience to best suit the role.
- Make the most of limited experience. Nobody has lots of skills or experience at the beginning of their career, so make the most of what you have done, and look for innovative ways to show learnings from any outside-of-school activities or work.
- Be proactive and reach out to companies directly. If you are unsure about a specific requirement, then ask a question.
- You could look to do some volunteer work, or a virtual work experience, to help boost your skills and make your application look even stronger.
