When you join the Rolls-Royce Management Accountant Training Scheme, you'll play a key part in our success from your first day. You'll put a lot in - and you'll get a lot back in return. We'll pay for you to achieve professional accounting qualifications. We'll be offering a competitive salary and great experience. Most of all, we're giving you the chance to start a high-flying career as a fully-qualified accountant.

The Rolls-Royce Management Accountant Training Scheme programme

You'll gain financial and business experience whilst building a sound technical knowledge of accounting. Whatever you're doing and wherever you're learning, you'll be making a real contribution to our business whilst becoming a fully-qualified accountant. We'll make sure you feel supported every step of the way with mentoring from fully-qualified accountants, apprentice development teams and a buddy from the programme. You can also expect paid study leave during the four years.

What you'll do

You'll work towards becoming an accountant during our four-year programme, developing the technical and business knowledge you need to build a solid foundation for an exciting career in finance. During your first two years, this will mean completing placements within the Finance Service Centre or Tax teams. With your placements matched to your level of experience, you'll learn all about life in a wide range of finance environments at a pace that's challenging, but not overwhelming.

At the same time, you'll be completing the Association of Accounting Technician (AAT) qualification. Your second two years will see you complete two 12-month Finance placements in different business sectors across Civil and Defence Aerospace, Marine and Nuclear, as you study for the prestigious Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) qualification. After four years, you'll be ready to further your career, starting with a role as a Finance Analyst.

What you'll get

A competitive salary starting from £15,300 a year and increasing as you complete your training

A competitive pension, and 33 days' holiday per year (inclusive of Bank Holidays)

Career support from day one

Valuable qualifications and professional accreditation

What you'll need

Naturally, we look for highly numerate people to join our programme.

You'll also need good GCSEs or Standard Grades in Maths and English and, ideally, some relevant work experience. We're looking for motivated and driven individuals with good attention to detail and great communication skills; people who can learn quickly and work well with others. You'll be able to prove all of this with your achievements outside of education.
