Project Management Summer Internship Programme

Bristol | Derby | Birmingham
Management & Business
£17,850 pa (pro rata)
1st February 2019

The diversity, breadth and scale of our projects spans many areas of our business, which makes a summer internship with us a great opportunity to get an insight into Rolls-Royce, and what it takes to do well here. Whether we’re developing gas turbines, creating manufacturing facilities or building power stations, sound project management ensures we meet our customers’ expectations – as well as our own. Life in this team isn’t just about delivery. It’s also about looking at how we can do things better and how we can excel at everything we do.

The programme

Over the course of 10 weeks, you’ll work in one of our businesses, so you’ll get an understanding of how projects are managed in Civil Aerospace, Defence or Power Systems. Wherever in the country you’re based, you can look forward to experiencing live projects and getting exposure to scoping, planning and scheduling as well as resource, cost and risk management. Crucially, you’ll take ownership of key elements of a project and be responsible for delivering them successfully. Perform well and you may get a chance to join our graduate programme – a fantastic start to a career with one of the world’s most prestigious global companies.

What you’ll do

During your time with us you might get involved in restructuring our world-class supply chain or putting a new product into production. You might also report on projects in progress, dig deep into a particular stage of the project lifecycle or drive improvements. Whatever you do, you’ll learn about project controls, stakeholder management, resource planning and requirements capture. And you’ll be making a difference to our business as you do it.

What you’ll need

We’re looking for people who are keen to make an impact and share their ideas, so we’ll want to see great communication skills. You’ll need to bring strategic abilities, people skills and strong attention to detail, and you should be on course to achieve at least a 2:1 degree, or a comparable qualification. Flexibility is important too as you could be based at any of our sites.
