Employees rate London 18.4% higher than the overall average
I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (Less than a year)
Rolls Royce pay for my training in college to receive my Engineering Qualifications. Next year I have to move to Derby, but the company are helping me out massively. There is a great sense of care and time given to employees, especially apprentices where we are helped every step of the way. I can not wait to qualify and start my career with Rolls...This is definitely a company or life. If you're young and looking for an Engineering apprenticeship, don't hesitate to apply. By far one of, if not the best apprenticeship in the country.
low starting pay (But many pay rises depending on performance of apprenticeship), as i'm based in London its hard to meet my apprentice leader as he is based in Derby

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (London, England).
Applied online and within a week or so I was invited to take the online tests and from there I got the results within 2 hours (which in my opinion is great) and within 3 weeks was invited to the assessment centre.
The assessment centre was made up of 3 exercises:
1- a 5 minute presentation that I was are to prepare about myself and the company, with a Q&A afterwards. (If you mention something in your presentation, make sure you know about it).
2- a technical interview where I was show and engineering process and accompanying data and I was asked to explain what the data was showing. I was then shown an engine compartment and asked to say what it might be, what it is made of and the manufacturing processes used. In this bit I recommend just saying you thoughts through the whole process, the people interviewing you will help you and try and draw the answer out of you so it is really important to just be as verbal as you can.
3- a group exercise where we were given a task and we asked to make a paper plan, on a budget and had to factor in design, budget, material and aesthetics. Again, be verbal but don't shout over people.
My advice is to really research the company and decide why you like it and also what the company is doing at the moment such as new contracts.
