Engineering and design

From the famous Merlin engine of the 1940s to our world-leading gas turbine technology, we've continually redefined the world of engineering for over 100 years.

To ensure we remain at the forefront of our industry, Rolls-Royce has a team of over 17,000 engineers around the globe. They include everyone from world experts in their field to those who manage hundreds of people and millions of pounds worth of investments. We recruit engineers at all levels and in a range of disciplines. And while we encourage specialisation, we also offer options to cross-specialise and develop skills across a number of different areas.
