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.

2020 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.

Application process

We recognise the value and diverse thinking that our early careers cohorts bring to Renishaw and the importance of investing in this talent. In line with the UK Government's developing guidance for the COVID-19 pandemic we continue to constantly review the management of our early careers recruitment activity and our 2021 intake. Please check back regularly over the coming months as these pages will be updated for applications in due course.

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
  • One 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.

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.
