Job description

Designing world-leading power systems is one thing. Actually seeing them through to delivery is something else entirely. And that’s where our manufacturing engineering team comes in. On this programme, you’ll be helping us to deliver on our promises and achieve the most exacting standards. At the same time, you’ll get a great insight into Rolls-Royce, and what it takes to do well here. You’ll be working closely with our manufacturing engineers – the people who develop state-of-the-art processes, acquire new capabilities, factories and machinery, and put new products into production. You can expect to be given real responsibility and plenty of scope to make a positive contribution to our business. This is an opportunity to undertake work you can be truly proud of.

The programme

On our Manufacturing Engineering Summer Internship Programme, you’ll be located at one of our manufacturing facilities across the UK. Whether you’re working for us in civil or defence aerospace, nuclear, marine or power systems, you can look forward to undertaking a substantial project. You’ll be working in capability acquisition, product introduction or continuous improvement, so you’ll gain a deep insight into how we work in one area of the manufacturing lifecycle. Along the way, you’ll learn from true experts and be taught invaluable skills. And if you perform well, you could be invited to join our graduate programme – a fantastic start to a career with one of the world’s most prestigious global companies.

If you are a student member of an institute, experience gained on your internship can be used to credit some of your learning towards your graduate programme and chartership status, should you choose to join.

What you’ll do

The projects you undertake will vary depending on our business needs and where you’re based. You could be part of a team improving a manufacturing process, or get involved in developing new technology to help introduce a new product into manufacture. You might also get the chance to work in our central teams, transforming the way we undertake manufacturing engineering across all of our facilities. The opportunity to make an impact, and a good impression, is huge.

What you’ll get

  • Learn from experts
  • The chance to join our graduate programme if you perform well
  • Leisure facilities and numerous sports societies and social activities
