Why Rolls Royce?

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Nuclear Watchkeeper to retrain with us to become a ‘Technical Author’.

We’re a leader in propulsion system design and development for the Royal Navy’s nuclear submarine fleet and the sole provider and technical authority.

Join us and we’ll provide an environment where you can be yourself. An inclusive, digital-first culture that invests in you, gives you a platform for continuous learning, and access to an incredible breadth and depth of opportunities to grow your career.

We offer excellent development, a competitive salary and exceptional benefits. These include bonus, employee support assistance and employee discounts.

Your needs are as unique as you are. Hybrid working is a way in which our people can balance their time between the office, home or another remote location.

As a minimum we’re all expected to attend the workplace for collaboration and other specific reasons, on average three days per week.
