Renishaw offers a variety of opportunities for graduates from a number of backgrounds. Please apply through the streams below.

In order to grow as a company, we maintain a high level of skill in our workforce by maximising potential through career training and development.

2016 Graduate Scheme

Renishaw constantly strives to recruit and develop talented individuals. We believe that this is as important to us as designing measurement and inspection equipment and software. Part of Renishaw's ongoing success is due to its commitment to investing in the training and development of its staff.

Applications are now open for our 2016 intake. Please apply via the relevant stream below by clicking 'Apply now', uploading your CV and completing the downloadable form.

Assessment days will be held in late November 2015. The deadline for applications is 2nd November 2015.

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
  • Mentorship scheme
  • Three week comprehensive company induction programme
  • Job-specific training, skills and knowledge
  • Hundreds of possible career paths

Training and support

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

Many graduates go on to forge a long and successful career at Renishaw; a number of directors and operations managers have come into the company as graduates and apprentices.

Upon completion of the graduate scheme, 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 contribution pension scheme – 9% company contribution

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 some positions available at our sites in Edinburgh and Stone (Staffordshire).

Due to very limited public transport links in most areas, having your own transport is essential.
