Job Description

It’s not every day that you can say that the work you do helps keep the UK safe, but that is just one of the unique benefits of securing a role within Rolls-Royce Submarines.

Founded in 1906, and quickly gaining a reputation for making the most famous cars and engines in the world, Rolls-Royce has evolved to a global provider of power to multiple customers across the world, and is now recognised as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of gas-turbine power systems for use on land, sea and in the air.

However, for over sixty years Rolls-Royce has been quietly designing, manufacturing and supporting in-service, the reactor plant that power the Royal Navy’s nuclear submarine fleet, while at the same time gaining a reputation as a provider of solutions for the civil nuclear industry.

Throughout this time, the company has been at the forefront of Britain’s nuclear power research and has played a key role in developing the country’s nuclear engineering capability. Because of the classified nature of most of this work, much has gone unreported, and though many residents of Derby will know of this association, very few in the country are fully aware of the Rolls-Royce nuclear power connection.

Since the late 1950’s, Rolls-Royce has designed, supplied and supported the nuclear plant that power and propel all of the UK Royal Navy's nuclear submarines. Rolls-Royce Submarines Ltd is responsible for delivering the Nuclear Steam Raising Plant (NSRP), plus parts of the secondary propulsion systems to the UK Ministry of Defence.

A workforce of over 3000, based primarily in Derby, also manage these assets across their full lifecycle. This includes providing frontline support across the world for Royal Navy submarine reactor plant equipment from the Company’s Operations Centre in Derby. They also support the submarines when in the Barrow-in-Furness shipyard and the naval bases at Devonport and Faslane.

At Rolls-Royce, we are Pioneers of power. We continually pioneer integrated power and propulsion solutions to deliver cleaner, safer and more competitive power. Learn more about our Defence business here
