How to apply

Step 1: Application
Find your desired programme in Search and Apply to apply online.  Please note that you can only apply for one programme each cycle, so please ensure you’re completely happy you’ve chosen the right one.

We'll want to know about your degree, work experience and extracurricular activities. You'll need to choose options from our drop-down menus, but there are also plenty of spaces to tell us more about  yourself, so make sure you do!

The closing date for applications varies between programmes, so please check the individual listings - Please note, the Graduate Development Programme application process for Poland will open January 2016. Germany applications will open on 8 February 2016.

Once you have submitted your online application, you will immediately receive two emails - one to acknowledge that you have submitted your application, and a second email inviting you to take some online assessments. You will need to complete all of the assessments provided for your application to be considered. 

Please note, not all emails are compatible with our systems so please check your spam/junk folders to ensure that you have received both emails.

You can also access these emails via “my job page” on your Rolls-Royce careers profile, or if you are still having difficulties please contact as soon as possible.

Please read IMPORTANT INFORMATION - HELP AND TIPS FOR ONLINE ASSESSMENTS as this contains lots of information to help you perform at your best for the online assessments and solutions to some of the most common queries we receive regarding the assessments.

You have ten days to complete the assessments - but before you do, try out some sample questions by visiting .
