What will I gain from this placement scheme?

Each placement will involve working on live projects under the guidance and expertise of experienced colleagues. As well as gaining hands on experience in your chosen field, 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.

What type of things will I be working on?

An industrial placement within the manufacturing organisation at Renishaw offers you the opportunity to understand and interact with cutting edge technology within a precision mechanical, electronic, and optical environment. You will be being given a real role, with associated responsibilities and tasks that will deliver tangible results to this global business.

This placement is within the Manufacturing Services Division and you will be 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; either assembly engineering or manufacturing engineering (both areas having process development, process support, and project engineering functions) with activities ranging from process design, project planning, performances analytics, to hands-on support and problem solving.

You will be treated as a full-time member of the function with the same responsibilities and growth opportunities. A successful placement provides an excellent opportunity for you to be considered for a graduate scheme position in the future.  

Where will I be working?

This role is based at our site in Miskin, South Wales. As Renishaw sites are based in semi-rural locations, it is essential that applicants have their own form of transport or are willing to relocate to the local area. 

What do I need?

Applicants must be studying for a degree in any STEM subject.


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. 

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.
