Mission: Pioneering the power that matters - Rolls-Royce pioneers cutting-edge technologies that deliver the cleanest, safest and most competitive solutions to our planet’s vital power needs.
What we do
At Rolls-Royce we impact the world by being free to innovate, explore and be brilliant.
We deliver products and services that solve some of the world’s most complex problems and that the world relies on to perform day after day.
We’ve designed the world’s most eco-friendly ships, powered nuclear submarines and enabled land-speed records. We’ve created the world’s most efficient large aero-engine, game-changing engineering solutions for supersonic jets and even supported NASA missions on the edge of space.
We’re split in to three Business Units (Civil Aerospace, Defence and Power Systems) which align with our strategic vision to pioneer cutting-edge technologies that deliver vital power.
We’re one of the world’s leading producers of aero engines for large civil aircraft and corporate jets, and the second largest provider of defence aero engines in the world. We design vessels and integrate power systems for the marine sector, and we have a growing presence in civil nuclear power, drawing on our skills and experience of over 50 years in powering nuclear submarines. Our MTU brand is world-renowned in high-speed diesel engines powering applications as diverse as rail locomotives and luxury yachts.
We support our customers through a worldwide network of offices, manufacturing and service facilities.
Our people are our power
People owning the moment, being brilliant and changing the future. People creating amazing products and services that have a profound impact on the world and other people’s lives.
We cannot deliver our vision without the commitment, skills and ingenuity of our employees. Therefore, we’re committed to creating a working environment and culture where our people are able to be at their best.
An inclusive culture where there is respect and appreciation for diversity; one that empowers our people to be themselves, be curious, collaborative and bold enough to challenge convention; one that is open minded and unafraid of failure, enabling our people – and our business – to be agile and change with pace.
Join us and you’ll be proud to be part of an organisation with an enduring and pioneering history that invests hundreds of millions of pounds every year in people, technology and innovation: a company that encourages and fulfils ambitions, trusts you to deliver, and rewards you accordingly.
We want you to be both inspired and rewarded by the work you do for us.
We offer a range of benefits and rewards that reflects our status as a leading global employer. These vary depending on your location and your role, but can include things like share plans, pensions and healthcare. We also work hard to create an environment where business objectives and job requirements are clear, so everyone is rewarded both for their personal contribution and the overall success of our business.
I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than a year)
Work life balance is excellent, salary is competitive for industry, time off for funerals, doctors etc. as standard. Pension contributions are okay and increase with age.
Rolls is a company looking to the future so it's really inspiring to be a part of. Working in so many locations means that there's huge scope for personal growth.
Big investment in training and development of people
The company could achieve a lot more if all employees were to give their 100%
I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce in April 2012.
Two interviewers (hiring manager and specialist) who take turns at asking questions. They worked from a script and if I didn't provide sufficient detail had a set of sub-questions to work from (prompt). Both took notes.
Format was - Introductions; explanations of process; 4 competency based questions; 1 specific technical question; an in-depth delve into a couple of details on my CV; wrap up; explanation of the timescale and thank yous.
