The role

The manufacturing industrial placement scheme at Renishaw is suitable for students who are required to undertake a sandwich placement as part of their degree course. Students will be considered from a wide range of STEM subjects, from manufacturing and mechanical engineering to physics and maths.

An industrial placement within the manufacturing organisation at Renishaw offers you the opportunity to understand and interact with cutting edge technology within a precision mechanical, electronic, and optical environment. It will provide the chance to learn more about what a career in a modern manufacturing facility really means and provide an excellent insight into how a manufacturing organisation interacts with the entire business operation.

You will be given relevant projects and responsibilities related to your interests and discipline studied. The entire placement is spent within the Manufacturing Services Division to enable you to get fully integrated into the team, where you will be mentored and supported by the technical staff and our senior managers. You will be encouraged to participate in the relevant areas; either assembly engineering or manufacturing engineering (both areas having process development, process support, and project engineering functions) with activities ranging from process design, project planning, performances analytics, to hands-on support and problem solving.

You will have the opportunity to connect with people working in the business and discuss your career ambitions and ideas with employees in similar roles. A successful placement provides an excellent opportunity for you to be considered for a graduate scheme position or a direct entry role in the future.
