What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
On top of all the usual advice - show that you're enthusiastic about engineering and give plenty of examples where you've helped to solve problems.
Do you have any interview tips?
I'm not going to give away any questions that I was given but if you do the following you should have a decent chance:
Show that you're enthusiastic! - I was asked to give a presentation about something engineering related, I picked an extra curricular activity that I'd been involved with for a few years and my enthusiasm for engineering was obvious. It's also helpful if you can link back to technical theory.
Do the usual research - Engines which RR sell, the aircraft they go on, share prices, future engines (the website goes into detail on RR's vision over the next 10-20 years so you may get asked something about this).
Scrub up on theory - Technical interview goes into detail on two or three topics. I was given a choice of topic. Ensure you're comfortable with the basics before revising anything complex.
Keep calm and think logically - When asked a difficult question don't panic. Stay calm, work your way up from the basics and you'll show some level of knowlege. If it's a paticular aspect of engineering that you're not that confident with, or you've only had one lecture on it, say so.
