Where in the world?
Excellence across the globe
Rolls-Royce is a truly global company providing power and propulsion systems to customers in over 120 countries, so your career can take you all over the world. Our graduates have the opportunity to work in locations across the world including Brazil, Canada, Germany, Japan, Singapore and Norway. However, for most graduates, your career will begin in one of three main locations.
Living and working in Derby
Derby has been home to Rolls-Royce for more than 100 years and is one of the company's main bases. Over 11,000 employees work in the city, predominantly in the civil aerospace divisions. With employees working in a number of business functions, including research and technology, manufacturing operations and business support services, Derby is a great place to gain a wide exposure to our organisation and engineering expertise.
Derby is an affordable place to live. It is situated close to the Peak District and the National Forest, and just two hours by train from central London.
Living and working in Indianapolis
The Rolls-Royce facility in Indianapolis is our largest manufacturing location in North America. The site is home to approximately 4,000 employees in two main facilities: a research, development and testing site of nearly one million square feet and a main production site of more than two million square feet. Employees in Indianapolis design, develop and manufacture products for the civil and defence aerospace markets. Indianapolis is a friendly, multicultural city, big enough to offer all
the amenities and entertainment you could wish for, yet small enough to have a sense of friendly community.
Living and working in Bristol
Over 3,500 of our employees work in Bristol, across a number of businesses. These include defence aerospace, turbines, component services, marine and aero repair and overhaul. We have recently invested over £75m redeveloping our Bristol site as part of a nationwide investment in world-class operations and assembly facilities. Located in the South West of England, Bristol has good road, rail and air links and is one of the UK's greenest cities.
