YD JOB ALERT: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is looking for an Industrial Design Intern

rr_phantom_2018_1

Standing at the very pinnacle of automotive design is Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, a company that manufactures arguably the best luxury automobiles money can buy. A company first started by Charles Rolls and Henry Royce at the beginning of the 20th century, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is now a wholly owned subsidiary of German group BMW. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is looking for a bright young Industrial Design Intern for their Bespoke Internship for a 6-month period beginning September 2019.

THE OPPORTUNITY

A GOOD INTERNSHIP IS NEVER HANDS-OFF

Share your passion for getting hands-on with us.

We believe in creating an environment where our interns really can learn by doing during their time with us and where they are given their own areas of responsibilities from the start. That’s why our experts treat you as part of the team from day one, encourage you to bring your own ideas to the table – and give you the opportunity to really show what you can do.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is part of the BMW Group and its Goodwood manufacturing plant sits in the heart of the West Sussex countryside.

As the epitome of exclusive super luxury, a Rolls-Royce delivers unmatched quality, style and performance. Behind the legendary brand is a team of passionate and highly talented people who do their utmost to satisfy the wishes of clients who commission a Rolls-Royce. Each year we offer a number of internship opportunities and are keen to hear from you if you are currently studying an undergraduate degree and are looking to complete a 6 or 12-month placement.

The maxim of Sir Henry Royce – ‘take the best that exists and make it better’ permeates everything we do at Rolls-Royce. As a student, you will have hands-on experience from day one, while gaining practical insight into the corporate operations of a world-class automotive manufacturer.

Bespoke Design

The Bespoke Design Intern creates and steers desirable and profitable design features as part of existing and new model developments in line with Bespoke project and brand requirements. Working from within the Rolls-Royce Design team the design work is coordinated and managed by the Bespoke Project Team who steer the bespoke business. Design work can be modifications to existing features or from a blank sheet of paper and can derive from customer requests or be pro-actively offered as individual features or part of a Collection Car. Compelling theme development creates a strong framework of desirability for customer and collection cars and there is a need for both 2D graphical and 3D product design skills. Whilst there are specific Colour and Trim Designers within the team an appreciation of color and materials is expected.

Very strong creativity and presentation skills are required using both traditional sketching skills as well as digital techniques (Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator). Self-management skills are needed to work towards practical solutions with demanding deadlines and also to coordinate inputs from others and steer them effectively where necessary. An awareness of differing international cultures is helpful.

Good interpersonal skills (both verbal and written) are required in order to pursue design solutions and ‘sell’ ideas both internally and externally. The Design Intern needs the ability to juggle different demands, sometimes conflicting, whilst delivering attractive and customer focussed design solutions in a timely fashion. There is a need to appreciate technical and packaging issues and concepts must have a high level of practicality as designs move from concept to reality in a short and at times demanding timeframe.

The Intern role will join the team to work on developing design themes for customer cars and new Bespoke features using a combination of sketched images and retouched images from the Rolls-Royce Configurator. There will be further opportunities to be involved in concept feature development and a personally driven project.

BENEFITS

We offer a competitive salary of £17,500 per annum and a range of benefits including a pension scheme, generous holiday allowance and a subsidized on-site restaurant. As well as being surrounded by many fellow interns throughout your internship you will be supported by our experts in your chosen field.

REQUIREMENTS

Working towards a B.A or M.A. in Industrial Design or Automotive Design or equivalent with proven skills by way of portfolio and CV – please attach a portfolio of recent work to your application (PDF recommended max size 10Mb).
Some previous relevant work experience is helpful in a related field. Technical understanding and acumen to work on practical solutions within short time frames and manage time effectively. Some understanding of different manufacturing methods is helpful and an appreciation of regional markets. The Intern should be able to display knowledge of luxury trends (both current and emerging innovations).

• Strong personal presentation skills
• Strong visual imagery to sell ideas – sketching techniques plus Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator
• Experience of 3D modeling and visualization tools is an advantage
• Very good English language skills required – German language skills may be useful
• Driving licence may be an advantage

HOW TO APPLY

The application process is as follows:

Stage 1: Online application form*
Stage 2: Online ability tests (To be completed within 5 days of receipt)
Stage 3: Telephone interview with the recruitment team
Stage 4: Face to face interview with the hiring manager

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Please note that our undergraduate placement opportunities are only open to students who will be returning to their final year of study following their placement with us.
