Rolls-Royce is a pre-eminent engineering company focused on world-class power and propulsion systems.

The Rolls-Royce Group is organised into five customer-facing businesses: Civil Aerospace, Defence Aerospace, Power Systems, Marine and Nuclear.

Every year, Rolls-Royce spends billions on goods and services. Making sure we get the best possible value from that spend and from our supplier relationships is the role of our Procurement team.

As a graduate in Procurement, you'll start with three six-month placements which will provide you with a mix of on-the-job learning, modular training and project work. Covering roles in Buying or Materials Resource Planning & Control, these placements will give you a strong foundation in supplier management, allow you to hone your business acumen to a keen edge and provide you with an unparalleled insight into procurement within an advanced manufacturing and engineering organisation. Once you have completed this comprehensive introduction to our area, you’ll be ready to explore roles in Value Improvement, Forward Sourcing and Purchasing Development, depending on business need and where you want to round out your experience.

Crucially, these placements will give you an understanding of how different teams across Rolls-Royce interlink. The aim is to give you the best possible grounding for your future career. To that end, you’ll be encouraged and supported to qualify for membership of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply (CIPS).

After 18-20 months on programme, you may become a specialist or have the opportunity to extend the programme to develop into a leadership role.
