Engineering Higher Apprentice Jessica
IMAGINE │ your first ‘I did that’ moment
Life as a Higher Apprentice at Rolls-Royce means applying your skills to projects with a wide-reaching impact. It means endless variety and the chance to share your ideas about how we can do things even better. For Jessica, who’s currently on our Engineering Higher Apprenticeship, the programme has far surpassed all expectations.
Before I joined, I didn’t think I’d be given real products to work on. That isn’t the case! Every day, you’re given real work on Rolls-Royce products. Once the task is complete, you feel a real sense of achievement that your work will be part of a real product. It’s great seeing your work put into practice and being able to say ‘I did that’.
One of the most exciting projects for me involved the new technologies programme. We were looking at future developments, such as the composite fan and new turbine systems, and these are currently being demonstrated ready to be incorporated into new engines.
At Rolls-Royce, there’s always something different happening; something new to get involved with. This means that there’s something to interest everyone and that every day brings new challenges and experiences to keep the job exciting. As a Higher Apprentice, you definitely make a contribution as part of the team. And because we’re fresh into the company, we bring new ideas that may not have been thought of by other people.More Experiences
