Renishaw opens apprenticeship places for 2024

Across its Gloucestershire and South Wales sites, global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, has opened applications for 64 apprenticeship roles. The company offers an award-winning apprenticeship programme, where apprentices gain nationally recognised qualifications, some up to degree level, alongside on-the-job experience.

Renishaw offers a wide range of schemes and encourages applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds with different skills and experience. There are opportunities to join at different educational levels, starting with Level 2 apprenticeships (post-GCSE) through to Level 6 degree apprenticeships (post-A Level). There are roles available across different disciplines including: IT, general manufacturing and engineering, software engineering, embedded electronics and plant maintenance.

In collaboration with regional universities, Level 6 apprentices will work towards a bachelor’s degree via a blended learning programme. For example, Level 6 Software Engineers based in Gloucestershire will work towards a BSc in Digital and Technology Solutions from the University of Exeter, a fast-growing Russell Group university.

Apprentices will benefit from a competitive salary and benefits package and the opportunity to gain insight from industry-leading specialists, whilst working on real-life projects and products. Based on business need and performance, apprentices who start on Level 3 or 4 schemes may be able to progress to degree-level studies, giving them the opportunity to graduate with no student debt.

“Renishaw has always placed huge value on our early careers programmes,” said Simon Biggs, Early Careers Manager at Renishaw. “Many of our previous apprentices are now in senior roles, including Gareth Hankins, Director of Group Manufacturing and Executive Board member. With a variety of long-term permanent roles available on the completion of the scheme, our apprenticeships open up a huge number of career possibilities.”

Applications are open from early December, until February 12th, 2024, the end of National Apprenticeship Week.
