Salary: £10,795 pa
Start date: ASAP
Sectors: Engineering & Maintenance
When you’re building, manufacturing, inspecting, or repairing 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 to gain nationally recognised qualifications. More than that, with the chance to get hands-on with Rolls-Royce engines we offer the sort of practical experience that you can’t get anywhere else.
Join us as a Practical Apprentice and you’ll gain a strong foundation in the hands-on skills you need to work on a Rolls-Royce engine – all in your first year. Once you’re ready, you’ll move on to placements where you’ll work with and be supported by some of the world’s top engineers. In numerous attachments during your second year, you’ll broaden and deepen your knowledge before being aligned to a specific role in the business. Along the way, you’ll work towards completing your Apprenticeship framework, which will include studying for a Level 3 NVQ or SVQ as well as a Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Engineering technical certificate.
What you’ll do
This is hands-on work. So, whether you’re stripping down engines, wiring complex systems, fitting chemical analysis equipment or are making and maintaining the tools we need to craft precision engineering, you’ll be making a big impact. Throughout your apprenticeship you can expect to get your hands on state-of-the-art products, equipment or machinery from day one. All while being guided and supported by engineering experts.
What you’ll need
As well as showing a passion for practical engineering, you’ll need to be articulate, numerate and a great team player. You’ll also have to learn fast and have the discipline to balance studying for a qualification with the demands of your job. We also expect you to bring us passes at grade D or above in Maths, English, Physics or Chemistry, and a technical subject at GCSE, Standard Grade or an equivalent level. We do accept a lot of qualifications and take into account your experience, so make sure to check out the apprentice section of our website for more detail.
