Meet Pete, Electronic Design Manager, and find out what support Renishaw offers its graduates. To watch the full Gradcracker/Renishaw webinar, click here.

Renishaw is a growing company, with over 5,000 employees worldwide. Around 3,000 people are employed within the UK, where most of our research and development and manufacturing is located.   

Physical scientists in Renishaw are involved in the all stages of product development, from the initial product and technology research phase, through to the design, implementation and test of new products, and also in maintenance and problem resolution for existing products. An essential part of the role is liaison with specialists from other disciplines, particularly Mechanical, Electronics and Software Engineers.   

As a graduate entrant you will join a highly talented team of like-minded scientists and engineers working within one of our product divisions. You will take part in a general induction program with new graduates from other disciplines and take advantage of a wide range of general and role-specific training opportunities. You will be supported by a mentor to help you gain knowledge and ensure your career gets off to a flying start.   

Person specification

Renishaw are looking for well-motivated graduates who are numerate and logical, with an analytical and innovative approach to problem solving. They must be well organised and be able to demonstrate excellent practical, hands-on skills. Good mathematical modelling skills, both analytical and numerical will be an advantage.

Interest or experience in the analysis and design of optical systems would be particularly relevant for many of the roles. Fluency in a high-level programming language is very desirable.    

A good degree in physics can be a suitable qualification for these roles. But an applied-mathematician with strong practical skills or a chemist with a physical chemistry/instrumentation bias may also be appropriate.  

If you are motivated by application of physics principles to real physical and optical problems in engineering, this is an exciting opportunity to develop a career working in pioneering technologies in the design and development of innovative, world-leading, products.  


When you join Renishaw, we're committing to your future career. That's because we believe in developing our people's skills and promoting them internally.

We also offer a benefits package that's highly desirable; including a 9% non-contributory pension, discretionary annual bonus, *subsidised onsite restaurants and *coffee shops, free parking, *car sharing scheme and *24 hour fitness centres. (*not available at our Castle Donington, Exeter, York & Edinburgh sites)

We also want to promote a healthy work-life balance as much as possible, so we have introduced a Homeworking policy which allows for a combination of home and office based working depending on the nature of your role.

We also offer a variable working programme, 25 days' holiday plus bank holidays, Life Assurance Policy of 4 times annual salary, Cycle to Work scheme, enhanced maternity pay subject to qualifying criteria, the option to join BUPA Renishaw health trust and an Employee Assistance Programme for employees and family.


We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
