In 2019 at the JobCrowd Awards, Renishaw's Graduate Scheme was again ranked amongst the top three companies for graduates to work for in the UK's engineering and manufacturing sector, for companies taking over 30 graduates a year. The company recruits for software engineers (now including embedded software engineering), manufacturing graduates (with mechanical and electronics roles), commercial graduates, operational management roles, mechanical design engineers, applications engineers, electronic engineers, process engineers, physics and scientific roles and project coordinators.

The company has created new specialised software and manufacturing roles, now offering software engineering, embedded software engineering, mechanical manufacturing and electronics manufacturing schemes.

Following a comprehensive Group Induction Programme, where new graduates are welcomed to Renishaw and introduced to all aspects of the company, most graduates undertake six-month rotations around different divisions, before the offer of a permanent position in the company.

“Renishaw's graduate scheme broadened my technical knowledge and allowed me to meet clever and innovative people,” explained Amy Wilson, Graduate Machine Shop Planner at Renishaw. “It is obvious the company is prepared to invest in your future; it is interested in the individual.”

“Our Graduate Scheme is an opportunity to be part of a world-leading engineering company,” explained Becca Hiorns, Graduate Lead at Renishaw. “Graduates are an essential part of our business, as their technical mindset helps bring new perspectives to industry challenges.”

“Renishaw is committed to developing the skills of its people and promoting them internally,” added Hiorns. “Our employees are mentored, trained and encouraged to work towards chartered status —the opportunities are endless. In fact, William Lee, Renishaw's CEO joined the company as a graduate in 1996.”

Graduates at Renishaw have access to the company's benefits package, which includes a nine per cent non-contributory pension, discretional annual bonus and pay reviews, subsidised onsite restaurant, free parking and sports and leisure societies. They can also benefit from support to gain Chartered Engineer status and BUPA healthcare. The graduate employee benefits package was highly commended at the 2017 JobCrowd Awards.

To be considered for the Renishaw Graduate Scheme, applicants are required to have achieved, or are expected to achieve, a minimum 2:2 degree in a relevant discipline. Applications for Renishaw's graduate schemes are open until 1st November 2019. For more information on graduate opportunities at Renishaw, visit
