Job Description

Welder - Pressure Vessel - Submarines

Full Time


Why Rolls-Royce?

A number of opportunities for Welding positions have arisen within the New Build and Components Business in Nuclear (Submarines).

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.

You will be involved with the welding of a range of materials using various manual and mechanised welding processes. We have a mixture of both manual Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) operations and multi-hour Mechanised TIG and Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding operations, so flexibility across both types of work is essential. You will be working within an environment that is maintained to a high standard, with clear procedures and process control to meet the quality specifications required of our product.

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. It's a locally managed and flexed informal discretionary arrangement. As a minimum we're all expected to attend the workplace for collaboration and other specific reasons, on average three days per week.

What you will be doing:

With this exciting opportunity you will get a chance to be involved with the following:
  • You will be responsible for welding product to nuclear standards using technical instructions, manufacturing drawings, and written specifications. Ensuring compliance to process control and workplace cleanliness standards.
  • You will be welding to high specifications that will be subject to inspection potentially including X-Ray, Ultrasonic (U/T) and Liquid Penetrant Inspection (LPI).
  • You will be working with the latest welding technology including a variety of mechanised technology for both static and rotational welding configurations.
  • You will work within a team to resolve production and quality issues and have the flexibility to undertake other tasks and activities when production work is not required.

Your role will be an integral part of our manufacturing process and will enable Rolls-Royce to maintain our excellent quality standards.

Who we're looking for:

At Rolls-Royce we embrace agility, are bold, pursue collaboration and seek simplicity in everything we do. These principles form our values and behaviours and are an essential component of our assessment process and are fundamental qualities that we seek for all roles.

To be successful in this role you will need to meet the following criteria:
  • You will have completed a recognised time-served welding apprenticeship including City and Guilds, NVQ3 or equivalent.
  • You will possess experience in welding a range of materials, including stainless steel.
  • Ideally will possess experience in pressure welding to 100% X-Ray, ultrasonic or liquid penetrant inspection (LPI).
  • You will have a professional and flexible attitude, with the ability to communicate clearly and effectively at all levels.
  • Working knowledge of health, safety (including COSHH) and environmental procedures.

We're an equal opportunities employer. We're committed to developing a diverse workforce and an inclusive working environment. We believe that people from different backgrounds and cultures give us different perspectives. And the more perspectives we have, the more successful we'll be. By building a culture of respect and appreciation, we give everyone who works here the opportunity to realise their full potential.

To work for Rolls-Royce Submarines you need to hold a Security Check (SC) clearance without any caveats to that clearance. Rolls-Royce will support the application for Security Clearance if you don't currently already have this in place. Due to the nature of work the business conducts and the protection of certain assets, you must hold a UK nationality. Any dual nationals will require additional scrutiny and background checks prior to commencing work with RRSL.
