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.

We are particularly interested to hear from undergraduates who are looking for the opportunity to experience and work within the electronic engineering discipline at a leading engineering company. 

Our summer placements can expect to be an integral part of a project team, whose objective is to research, design, develop and deliver the next generation of products. 

The scheme will enhance your current skills and knowledge, feeding your ambition to learn about the world of electronic engineering, ultimately giving you an invaluable experience that will help progress your career. 

During your time with Renishaw, you will benefit from first-hand experience of some of the following:

  • Embedded systems development (using DSPs, FPGAs, microcontrollers, etc.) 

All of this, under the guidance and mentorship of senior engineers who will help broaden your technical and commercials skills, will enable you to achieve your potential. 

This role is based at our New Mills headquarters near Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire. This is a semi-rural location and it is essential that applicants have their own form of transport or are willing to relocate to the local area.
