Person specification

We are looking for a self-motivated mechanical engineer to work in a busy development environment.  Ideally someone who enjoys taking ownership, who can plan their work and who can interact with a busy team.



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 and pay reviews, subsidised onsite restaurant, free parking and sports and leisure societies. Of course, we appreciate there’s more to work than the office, so we also offer 25 days holiday, Life Assurance and BUPA Renishaw Health Trust.
