What will I gain from this graduate scheme?

This programme will be based on a series of placements where you will work on real projects, aligned to your ambitions and interests, that will deliver tangible results to this global business. By investing in your personal development, we hope to build up and broaden your knowledge and experience to create a confident and skilled professional to prepare you for a meaningful role within one of our product or services divisions.

What type of things will I be working on?

Our Operational Graduates will rotate through several core business areas within the Manufacturing Services Division including production management, materials management, logistics, project management, and supply chain. Individual placements provide graduates with the opportunity to take on real operational roles with responsibility that equips them for a future in manufacturing / supply chain management.

You will gain knowledge and experience within:

  • Material Control - planning the material requirements to support the assembly build of a Renishaw product range. 
  • Production Scheduling - provides graduates with experience of planning resources effectively to meet demand requirements and machine utilisation targets.
  • Supply Chain - graduates will gain experience of liaising with external suppliers, problem solving & negotiation, cost control, risk management, establishing contracts, and efficiency improvement projects as well as working with production and internal design teams.
  • Management - managing a team of production staff to meet build plan and customer order requirements.

By gaining experience within management, commercial operations, and cross-functional business knowledge, career opportunities are vast and will be available in production management, operations, commercial (supply-chain), material control, or logistics.

Where will I be working?

This role is based out of one of our major sites in Gloucestershire - Wotton-under-Edge (Head Office), Woodchester or Stonehouse. As Renishaw sites are based in semi-rural locations, it is essential that applicants have their own form of transport or are willing to relocate to the local area. Sites are within between 25 and 40 minutes from Bristol so easily commutable by car.

What do I need?

Candidates with a wide range of degree subjects will be considered at 2:1 or above level. Ideally candidates will have a genuine interest in pursuing a career within Operations in a high-tech manufacturing organisation.
