The role

The industrial placements scheme at Renishaw is suitable for students who are required to undertake a sandwich placement (nominally 12 months) as part of their degree course. The entire placement is normally spent within one product division to enable you to get fully involved and give you responsibilities within the projects that you will be working on.

Have you ever?

Renishaw and the influence of its activities on everyday lives and industry.

You will be mentored to develop your skills and contribute to the project development and encouraged to participate in areas of electronic design, commissioning, testing and manufacture. You will learn about some of the processes used within Renishaw and the attention to detail needed to develop a product, whether it is research, analysing performance or supporting an environment to validate a system. You will be introduced to the design tools and have opportunities to learn about other areas of Renishaw, experiencing the day to day operation of a world class engineering company. Networking with people within the business will develop your knowledge and provide opportunities to discuss your career ambitions.

Who are we looking for?

Graduates who:

  • are in a related STEM degree course (Electronic, Physics, Electromechanical) with a placement requirement
  • have a genuine interest in electronic design and development
  • are enthusiastic, engaging, capable of thinking logically about problem solving, have an excellent attention to detail, drive and ambition to contribute.

If you are looking to experience electronic engineering and are able to make a positive contribution with the right attitude, Renishaw would like to consider you.

As Renishaw is based quite rurally, it is essential that applicants have their own form of transport or they are willing to relocate to the local area.


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 and pay reviews, subsidised onsite restaurant, free parking and fitness centre. Of course, we appreciate there’s more to life than the office, so we also provide 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, Life Assurance, the option to join BUPA Renishaw Health Trust and an Employee Assistance Programme for employees and family.
