maintenance team leader (Current Employee) – Sunderland, Tyne and Wear – 29 September 2017
very demanding role running and organising my team. 2nd spell here after top managment recaled me to sort out mess that permenant staff/ contractors had left of machines. hoping for permenant role now or managment position. still waiting. grate place to work very busy at night with breakdowns. old factory but im keeping it running. dead wood needs removing in my opinion.
We meet with our manager to discuss what is needed that day or for the week.Generate our own work on the computer.Pick,decant and sort products in to the right cages.Deliver to the relevent department in box vans.We learned their computer system,air cargo security,accuracy in picking parts and a fair bit about Aircraft Engines.As you would expect with a major company,the management teams are helpful and informative.Which all ties in with the workplace culture.Honestly, there was'nt a hard part to the job,due to the training and management ethos.Which made it a very nice enviroment to work in.
working hours, 9 day fortnight.(every other Friday off).Pay
Typical Day: Involved heavily in challenging design work. Learned: Pressure equipment design, Crane design Management: Very well managed in within the department Culture: Very relaxed atmosphere that lets you get on with the job. Hardest Part: sometimes project timescales can be tight. Most enjoyable: Friendly supportive people to work alongside.
Good place to work. Great machinery. Professional people. Working on euro fighter intercases was challenging but rewarding. The material was titanium so very hard and stringy to cut. Tolerances were +/_ .010 Microns over 8 metres.
I found Rolls Royce the company to be a really enjoyable place to work. I found the company to be very friendly and reliable I also found the terms and conditions to be very good indeed the younger workers that is the apprentices were particularly well looked after in terms of on the job training and also the educational qualifications that they were helped to achieve as they went through their apprentice ship. There was also a lot of semi skilled workers employed there as well and the training the support and the follow up that they received was in my opinion of the highest order.
An intellectually stimulating environment with an astoundingly qualified yet personable and friendly workforce. Like any large company the management is often trying new business initiatives that may or may not be to the benefit of the office. Nevertheless the systems in place generally work very well and booking meeting rooms and retrieving human and electronic resources for project work is very simple. Everyone is very hardworking but by no means are they pushed to the limits like a junior investment banker. There is a competitive culture but everyone is very eager to help others with their own projects if they have the knowledge to be of assistance. Best part of the job was learning something new everyday and being able to help create innovative solutions at the highest level of engineering excellence in the UK.
Good company apart from all the temporary contract work.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Birmingham – 31 July 2017
Well run established OEM. No pressure on shop floor regards getting work done just as long as it is correct. Majority of colleagues are top men well trained and friendly. Best place I have ever worked at by far. Management are very good and understanding and help if they can. Hardest part of the job is retaining interest and working on temp contracts. Most enjoyable part of the job is working in a relaxed atmosphere.

System Engineer (Former Employee) – Derby, Derbyshire – 26 July 2017
My internship as a Systems Design Engineer at Rolls-Royce developed my skillset and giave me a more critical outlook. In the placement, I worked in a team, writing high-level software requirements for control sub-systems of the Trent 7000 engine, which addressed important safety concerns such as turbine over-speed. As part of the design process, I gave technical presentations outlining my control solutions to senior colleagues, internal stakeholders and the customer.
