About Us

Renishaw is a FTSE 250 global engineering and scientific technology company, with core skills in measurement, motion control, additive manufacturing, healthcare, spectroscopy and manufacturing. We supply products and services that push the boundaries of what is possible in applications as diverse as jet engine and wind turbine manufacture, through to dentistry and brain surgery. We are also a world leader in the field of metal additive manufacturing (also referred to as 3D printing), where we design and make industrial machines that ‘print' parts from metal powder.

"It's all wrapped up in one straightforward process!"

We currently have 79 offices in 37 countries, with around 4,500 employees worldwide. Over 2,500 people are employed within the UK where we carry out the majority of our research and development, and manufacturing.

With a global presence in a broad range of sectors, we aim to ensure that our workforce reflects the diverse global communities we serve. Every year we welcome a wide range of new employees, from apprentices to experienced professionals. By joining Renishaw you will be making a difference to the world in which we live, in a global company that encourages innovation and personal achievement.

Renishaw takes on a number of students during the summer holiday period for between 6 and 14 weeks. Students studying at sixth form or degree level will get the opportunity to develop good practical skills that will prove invaluable throughout any software engineering career. The majority of placements get involved in a project during their time with us, and projects can be with our Product, Web and Mobile Apps, UI controls, 3D Rendering, Testing or Applications Management teams where you can gain a real insight into working in a software development environment. 

Person Specification: 

We are looking for students who are either studying for relevant qualifications in Computer Science or can demonstrate a practical exposure to programming.   

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.
