Nuclear Engineering Technician Apprenticeship
Starting salary: £12,600 per year
Locations: Derby, Raynesway
Duration: 4 years
Our Nuclear Engineering Technician Apprenticeship will give you the skills, qualifications and experience needed to help us design, make, verify, and support the operation of the Nuclear Steam Raising Plants (NSRP), providing power to all of the UK’s Submarines. It’s a chance to get real work experience and earn a salary, while studying for a HNC in Engineering.
What you’ll do
Spend four years with our expert team as part of our brand-new Nuclear Skills Academy and you’ll gain the sort of practical knowledge you simply can’t develop in the classroom. You’ll gain a firm foundation in engineering principles and experience the full breadth of nuclear engineering as you take on a variety of placements across the engineering lifecycle and in different parts of the business.
This will include product and system design, testing, manufacture, and in-service support in a mix of day to day and project work. As well as getting on-the-job training on real-life projects, you’ll also study a HNC in Engineering. All of these experiences will equip you to complete your apprenticeship as an engineering technician with a huge range of opportunities ahead of you.
What you’ll need
You’ll need a minimum of 4 GCSEs (or equivalent) incl. Maths Grade 5/B, English Lan. Grade C/4 plus, Science and one other subject at grade 4/C (obtained or predicted).
We’re looking for individuals who are purpose-driven and passionate about delivering on commitments. People who are keen to learn about Nuclear Engineering and how the engineering lifecycle comes together to deliver a world class product. You’ll be a logical and analytical thinker – someone with a common-sense approach when it comes to working with data and coming up with solutions to challenges. You’ll also be a team player who’s able to demonstrate their achievements outside school or college.
Due to the nature of our work in Defence, we’re unable to employ anyone who doesn’t have the legal right to live and work in the UK and if you have spent more than three months outside of the UK in the last five years (e.g. travelling, working, living), we might not be able to employ you. This role is subject to Full UK Security Check Clearance issued by the United Kingdom Security Vetting. To work for the Rolls-Royce Submarines Business an individual has to hold a minimum of a Security Check (SC) clearance without any caveats to that clearance. Rolls-Royce will support the application for Security Clearance if the individual does not currently already have this in place.
What you’ll get
- A competitive salary starting from £12,600 a year and increasing as you progress through your training
- A competitive pension, and 33 days’ holiday per year (including bank holidays)
- Career support from day one
- A HNC in Engineering and nationally recognised qualifications
Assessment Centres will be running from End of May 2022 onwards
We are closing for Applications on 27th May 2022 by 12:00 Mid-Day [GMT]
