Operations Management Summer Internship Programme

Operations are rarely as complex as those you’ll find at Rolls-Royce. Keeping everything running smoothly right across our manufacturing, assembly and repair facilities is a major undertaking – as is managing the external suppliers who make around 70 percent of our components. Our Operations Management Summer Internship will offer you a huge opportunity to make an impact as you immerse yourself in real projects and share your ideas about how we can excel at absolutely everything we do.

The programme

Our 10 week summer internship offers bright and curious individuals the chance to enjoy tangible responsibility on challenging real-life assignments. As well as learning new skills and developing your existing knowledge, you’ll gain an impressive overview of one of our businesses and how we work together to deliver engineering excellence to our customers. Your placement could be in any strategic Operations area such as Purchasing, Supply Chain, Quality or a manufacturing environment. Wherever you work, you’ll develop a true appreciation of the importance of a complex and responsive Operations function.

What you’ll do

The Operations Management Summer Internship will see you get involved in a manufacturing improvement project. Working as part of a collaborative and supportive team, you’ll solve problems, liaise with people at every level of our business and come up with solutions that will increase efficiency for us, and improve the service we offer our customers.

Flexibility is important too, as you could be based at any of our sites.
