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.

About the Role:

Delivering our customers' engines and spare parts on time and at minimal cost is a complex and mission-critical challenge. It's one that takes an ever-evolving chain of people, processes and suppliers across the globe: all working together seamlessly and intelligently to make it happen.

Our Supply Chain Management Graduate Development Programme has been designed to give you exposure across the full supply chain. So as part of your 20-month programme, you’ll complete a number of placements, two of which will be core roles including Materials Resource Planning and Supply Chain Design. You’ll also complete placements in logistics, scheduling, inventory management, aftermarket and Customer Operations Centre which means you can expect to work with teams all over the business and make a difference to complex forecasting and planning projects.

The range of attachments cover eight key business processes – Supply chain development, demand management, scheduling, shop planning, risk and supply chain management, customer interface, process improvement and physical logistics.

Your graduate development consultant and career coaches will help you select placements that strengthen your knowledge and experiences. And you can look forward to training in key manufacturing methodologies like Lean Six Sigma. But you’ll do more than learn from a highly qualified team: on this programme, you’ll become one of them. That’s because we encourage all our Supply Chain Management graduates to attain membership of a relevant professional body such as CIPS or CILT.
