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!"

Becca runs through the application process at Renishaw. To watch the full Gradcracker/Renishaw webinar, click here.

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.

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. 

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. 

We are looking for people who: 

  • Are in a related degree course (Electronic, Physics, Electromechanical) with a placement requirement
  • A genuine interest in electronic design and development
  • 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, *subsidised onsite restaurants and *coffee shops, free parking, *car sharing scheme and *24 hour fitness centres. (*not available at our Castle Donington, Exeter, York & Edinburgh sites)

We also want to promote a healthy work-life balance as much as possible, so we have introduced a Homeworking policy which allows for a combination of home and office based working depending on the nature of your role. We also offer a variable working programme, 25 days' holiday plus bank holidays, Life Assurance Policy of 4 times annual salary, Cycle to Work scheme, enhanced maternity pay subject to qualifying criteria, the option to join BUPA Renishaw health trust and an Employee Assistance Programme for employees and family.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
