Renishaw recruits UK graduates for more than 70 places

The virtual selection process will include interviews, group work and early careers talks from Renishaw employees. As well as this, applicants will be chosen for their stand-out CVs and covering letters as much as their academic ability, to ensure they are the best fit for the positions

Renishaw has opened applications for a record 70 graduate positions, 51 apprenticeships and more than 60 placement opportunities across its Gloucestershire, England, and South Wales sites. This represents a major investment in the future development of its business, including roles in engineering, manufacturing, embedded electronic design and development, software and IT.

The apprenticeship applications, including those for degree apprenticeships, will close on February 12th, 2021, during national apprentice week, and graduate and placement applications will close on February 19th, 2021.  

As an equal opportunities employer, Renishaw is looking for applicants from diverse backgrounds who have a clear passion for engineering. The virtual selection process will include interviews, group work and early careers talks from Renishaw employees.

As well as this, applicants will be chosen for their stand-out CVs and covering letters as much as their academic ability, to ensure they are the best fit for the positions.  

“Apprentices and graduates futureproof the workforce, which is why we have invested so heavily in our early careers programmes since 1979,” explained Julia Russell, Apprentice Lead at Renishaw. “At Renishaw, apprentices are heavily involved in projects from the outset and they always bring innovative and fresh ideas to the team, helping our company to adapt in a rapidly changing industry. As they move around different departments, apprentices also have the opportunity to network, which can be a real plus during their long-term career.”

“Graduates have the opportunity to work across different departments in the company to develop transferable skills and find their passion,” commented Becca Hiorns, Graduate Lead at Renishaw. “Our graduates, apprentices and placement students go on to have careers in a wide range of engineering and commercial functions, including senior and managerial roles. For example, Gareth Hankins, Director of the Group Manufacturing Services Division, joined the company as an apprentice.”
