Business Degree Apprenticeship – Defence Submarines
Starting salary: £13,830 per year
Locations: Derby, Raynesway
Duration: 4 years
Our Business Degree Apprenticeship will develop you to manage the projects, plans, components, contracts, and supplier relationships that are vital to successful delivery of our programmes in our Defence Submarines business. It’s the chance to get real work experience and earn a salary, while studying for a debt-free honours degree in Business Management.
What you’ll do
Spend four years with our expert team as part of our brand-new Nuclear Skills Academy and you’ll gain the sort of practical knowledge you simply can’t develop in the classroom. You’ll experience the full breadth of our Nuclear business as you take on a variety of placements in different functional areas. As well as getting on-the-job training on real-life projects, you’ll also study for a debt free BA in Business Management, paid for by us and delivered by a UK university– so you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds as you shape your career.
For the British Navy to have a submarine fleet that is affordable and delivered on time, and for Rolls-Royce to lead in the global drive for sustainable power, it’s essential we operate efficiently and effectively. It’s business functions like Project Management, Procurement, Planning and Control, Business Management, Finance, Commercial and Human Resources that work together efficiently to make that happen. As part of the Business Degree Apprenticeship, you’ll get experiences across all of these functions, undertaking placements in different areas to give you the detailed understanding on how the business operates and even get an opportunity to make improvements to the business processes we use, in a mix of day-to-day tasks and project work. All of these experiences will equip you to be ready for a business role with a huge breadth of opportunities when you complete your apprenticeship.
What you’ll need
You’ll have three A-levels (or equivalent) obtained or predicted, at grade C or above to include a numerical or business-related subject (excluding General Studies). Alternatively, a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in a numerical or business-related subject at DDM, plus 5 GCSE’s (or equivalent) incl. Maths Grade 5/B, English Language Grade C/4 plus 3 others at Grade C/4.
We’re looking for individuals who are purpose-driven and passionate about delivering on commitments. People who are keen to learn about what makes a defence business operate successfully. You’ll be a logical and analytical thinker – someone with a common-sense approach when it comes to working with data and coming up with solutions to challenges. You’ll also be a team player who’s able to demonstrate their achievements outside school or college.
Due to the nature of our work in Defence, we’re unable to employ anyone who doesn’t have the legal right to live and work in the UK and if you have spent more than three months outside of the UK in the last five years (e.g. travelling, working, living), we might not be able to employ you. This role is subject to Full UK Security Check Clearance issued by the United Kingdom Security Vetting. To work for the Rolls-Royce Submarines Business an individual has to hold a minimum of a Security Check (SC) clearance without any caveats to that clearance. Rolls-Royce will support the application for Security Clearance if the individual does not currently already have this in place.
What you’ll get
- A competitive salary starting from £13,830 a year and increasing as you progress through your training
- A competitive pension, and 33 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays)
- Career support from day one
- A bachelor’s degree in Business Management and nationally recognised qualifications
Assessment Centre will be running from End-May 2022 onwards
We are closing for Applications on 27th May 2022 by 12:00 Mid-Day [GMT]
