Why Rolls-Royce?
Building a better World with Nuclear

We are uniquely placed to help build a better world with nuclear using world-leading technologies for power and propulsion solutions. What we do really matters.

It’s not every day that you can say that the work you do helps keep the UK safe, but that is just one of the unique benefits of securing a role within Rolls-Royce Submarines. We’re a leader in propulsion system design and development for the Royal Navy’s nuclear submarine fleet and the sole provider and technical authority.

In addition, our hotbed of innovation and problem-solving solutions mean our diverse and exciting range of growth opportunities is on the increase. These range from expanding our current product and service offerings through to entering new markets, including space exploration, and sustaining the environment through the development of clean energy solutions, such as the deployment of micro reactors, synthetic fuel production and the power of hydrogen.

We believe in bringing pride, accomplishment and prosperity to our people and the communities we work in by offering excellent development, a competitive salary, and exceptional benefits. These include bonus, employee support assistance and employee discounts.
Your needs are as unique as you are and where hybrid working is possible, we support ways in which our people can balance their time between the office, home or another remote location. As a minimum we’re all expected to attend the workplace for collaboration and other specific reasons, on average three days per week.
