At Rolls-Royce, we pioneer cutting-edge technologies to explore the possibilities of cleaner, safer, more competitive power. As a Quality Management Degree Apprentice, you’ll help ensure the jet engines we build remain the finest in the world and be part of the team that’s enabling us to pioneer safer, more efficient products while upholding the quality we’re known for.

Everyone is unique, so every Rolls-Royce journey is different too. We'll help you to find your way and discover your potential. Your unique personality, passion, and sense of purpose makes us who we are and a place where everyone belongs. And anything is possible.

The programme

Spend four years with our expert team across our Civil Aerospace business, gaining the sort of practical knowledge you simply can’t develop in the classroom. As you take on placements in different areas, you’ll experience the full breadth of quality management – from the design of our products, to the way they’re manufactured, to supporting our airline customers as they put them into service. As well as getting on-the-job training on real-life projects, you’ll also study for a BEng Honours degree with a leading UK university. Together, this will give you a solid foundation for an exciting career in quality. 

What you’ll do

The importance of quality can’t be overstated. It’s in our DNA. You’ll work to ensure we deliver quality products and services to our customers, using our best-in-class quality management system. Working with teams across our business, you’ll help make sure our processes are fit for purpose, that we are always complying with regulations and we’re continuously improving what we do.

In each of your placements, you’ll delve into the detail of our business systems and processes and how they deliver value. Working with colleagues, customers, suppliers and external regulators, you’ll conduct investigations, complete analysis and improve processes. It’s a fantastic opportunity to make an impact in a world-class Quality team.

What you'll need

5 GCSEs at grade 4/C which must include Maths and English Language. 3 A-Levels (or equivalent) to equate to 112 UCAS points, including Maths at Grade B or above, and ideally an Engineering or STEM related subject (excluding General Studies) plus 1 other subject, or a Level 3 Extended BTEC in an Engineering or STEM-related subject, along with A-level Maths at grade B. Obtained or predicted.

We look for people who are keen to learn about what makes a global business operate safely and successfully. You’ll be inquisitive and analytical – someone who can ask questions, interrogate data and is always looking for better ways of doing things. You’ll be creative in your ability to solve problems, determined to deliver on commitments and a strong team player who’s able to demonstrate their achievements outside school or college.

What you’ll get

  • A competitive starting salary, with annual pay rises
  • Fully sponsored BEng (Hons) degree
  • Competitive pension and 33 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays)
  • Career support from day one
