Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship at Renishaw is a pathway to excellent career opportunities with a highly respected, world-leading precision technology business.

We offer a wide-range of apprenticeship schemes in engineering, digital, commercial and construction areas

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a job with learning, and will provide you with hands-on experience, professional skills, and nationally recognised qualifications through education, training and work-based placements. Renishaw apprenticeships are full-time, permanent jobs that give you formal training alongside work placements. You get to work towards qualifications at the same time as learning about the different areas of the business.

Each work-based placement is designed to complement your skills and experience whilst ensuring you are given a rigorous foundation in all areas of the specific scheme. These placements are in real jobs where you are providing value to the organisation at the same time as having your skills and experience challenged.

Placements complement the education and skills training you do as part of your apprenticeship and you will learn and develop knowledge, skills and behaviours that will lead to you being competent in a particular job role or sector.

As a Renishaw apprentice, you will benefit from 50 years of experience and commitment in training and developing our people as part of an award-winning scheme. You will get the opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues, and take part in exciting and challenging placements, working on real-life projects and products that will help to shape our world in the decades to come and touch billions of lives.

There is also the opportunity for further progression, subject to internal application processes. The length of the scheme is determined by the apprenticeship – some last 18 months, some are 5 and a half years for degree level apprenticeships.
