Bhavik Bhatt, Thermofluids Engineer at Rolls-Royce
“With 50,000 employees, we have every type of personality working for us and every type of job role to fit those personalities.
If you’re introverted, methodical and you’ve got a keen eye for detail, there are many, many roles for you.
On the flip side, if you’re a strategic thinker, if you love customer interaction, we also need you.
We need the people who like to get really stuck into data crunching, but we also need the people who can take a step back and think about how everything fits together. Who are we selling to? Who are the customers?
We need people who are slightly more thoughtful. Who, if you ask them a question, will go away and research it thoroughly and give you a polished response. But we also need people who can answer straight away and get things done. You need a compromise between the two.
When it comes to personality, the best teams I’ve worked with have been the most diverse ones.”
