Health & Safety Summer Internship Programme

At Rolls-Royce, we strive for excellence in everything we do – and Health & Safety is no exception. Our core goals are a safe and healthy work environment with no injuries, no work-related ill health and no environmental incidents, along with the prevention or minimisation of any health, safety or environmental impact from our activities, products and services.


It’s vital, global work – we aim to earn the confidence of customers, shareholders and society at large and, as a responsible business, to contribute to broader economic and social sustainability. Join our summer internship, and you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to real health and safety projects and to share your ideas about how we can help our people, sites and the company excel with world-class levels of HS&E management and performance.


The programme


Our Health & Safety Summer Internship is all about giving you an immersive, hands-on experience and insight into how we continually achieve and exceed our exacting HS&E standards. You’ll learn from some of the most respected and highly qualified professionals in the field. Perform well, and you could be offered the change to join our graduate programme.


What you’ll do


Over 10 weeks, you’ll work with health and safety colleagues in our central teams and out on site. It could be that you’re supporting our Civil Aerospace business, implementing corporate safety standards, conducting risk assessments, organising training, and developing local audits and assurance programmes. Or in the central team, you could help to improve our safety programmes and standards before communicating the changes to the global business. Out on site, you’ll be able to see the different HS&E challenges first-hand, and grow your knowledge across a range of topics.


What you’ll need


You’ll be on track to achieve a 2:1 in Health & Safety (or in a degree with related modules) and a demonstrable business aptitude. You’ll be working towards becoming a technical health and safety specialist and leader, so across everything you do, you’ll bring courage, integrity and a flair for delivering results. Your strong relationship skills mean you know how to earn trust and inspire respect. And with an inquisitive and resourceful approach, you’ll never be short of ideas about how we can do things even better. Languages are highly desirable.
