What does the scheme involve?

The graduate training programme is designed to strike a balance between structure and flexibility. The basic principle is that graduates are aware of the opportunities within the company and so have enough information to make informed choices as their careers develop.

The main features of the graduate programme are:

  • Up to 2 years of flexible placements
  • Experienced mentor
  • Three week comprehensive company induction programme
  • Job-specific training, skills and knowledge
  • Hundreds of possible career paths

Training and support is structured to suit both individual and company needs. At any time during their employment with Renishaw, engineers may apply and work towards Chartered status. Graduates are allocated a mentor to help guide them through their initial few years in the company.

Many graduates go on to forge a long and successful career at Renishaw. A number of directors and operations managers have come into the business as graduates and apprentices and have been given opportunities to move up through the business.

Upon completion, graduates will move into an appropriate position within one of Renishaw's product divisions.

Company Benefits:

  • 25 days annual leave, plus bank holidays
  • Support to gain chartered status
  • Medical and life assurance
  • Defined pension scheme – 9% company contribution
  • On site fitness centres


Most positions are available at a number of sites in the south of Gloucestershire, close to Bristol, with easy access to the M5. We also have limited positions available at our sites in Edinburgh, York and Stone (Staffordshire).

Due to very limited public transport links in the area, having your own transport is essential.

Assessment days will be held throughout early 2015. The deadline for applications is 31st January 2015.
