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 Medical Devices industrial placement scheme is suitable for students who elect to undertake a sandwich placement as part of their degree course who have a keen interest in medical device development and working within the healthcare sector. Students will be considered from a wide range of subjects, from Medical/Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Sciences to Process/Production Engineering, Physics and Materials Engineering.

An industrial placement within Renishaw Neuro Solutions at Renishaw offers you the chance to learn more about what a career in medical devices (specifically those intended for neurosurgical applications) really means and provides an excellent insight into wide range of activities involved in the development of medical devices, from concept to regulatory approval and ultimately, placement on the market.

You will be given relevant projects and responsibilities related to your interests and discipline studied. The entire placement is spent within Renishaw Neuro Solutions, 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; product design/development, process improvement, quality, regulatory, change control and clinical aspects.

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. 

You must be:

  • Studying at degree level in a STEM subject
  • Have an interest in working with medical devices
  • Be enthusiastic, motivated and have an ambitious nature

If you have the right aptitude and appetite, you will have the opportunity to make a positive and lasting impact during the placement.

As Renishaw Neuro Solutions is based in a semi-rural location, 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.
