Rolls-Royce careers for school leavers

“You feel a sense of achievement of knowing your work will be part of a real product. It’s great being able to say, ‘I did that’.” Jessica, Engineering Higher Apprentice, Rolls-Royce 

We know not everyone’s keen to go straight from school to university, to build up debt, and to put their career development on hold while they study. If that sounds like you, an apprenticeship or trainee programme with us could be your perfect choice. You’ll not only get hands-on training, earn a competitive salary and build a great support network, you could also work towards achieving a professional qualification or degree. It’s a great way to start your career, while completing debt-free studies.
