Renishaw maintains top three position in graduate jobs poll
15 June 2015
Graduates have again voted Renishaw one of the top three companies to work for in the engineering and manufacturing industry, in tables recently published by leading graduate jobs website The JobCrowd.
The poll includes companies with an intake of more than 30 graduates a year, and the high ranking means Renishaw is the only company to maintain its top three position from last year's results.
Renishaw has also risen in the overall rankings, moving from just inside the top 50 last year, to be placed 32nd in only the second year the company has been included in the poll.
Group Human Resources Manager Peter Bowler said, “Renishaw is dedicated to the success of its graduate recruitment programme and we are delighted to have maintained our high position in this poll, especially because it is voted for by our graduates.”
Described as a “TripAdvisor for jobs”, The JobCrowd hosts thousands of anonymous reviews written by graduate employees, and each year collates these reviews to create the annual Top Companies to Work For list.
An anonymous review by one graduate engineer's review reads, “For me the best part of working as a graduate within Renishaw is the placements you experience as a graduate… Renishaw offers extremely varied placements which have allowed me to realise the direction I want to take my career in.”
Another anonymous graduate engineer in the company's Medical Dental Products Division says, “The company is innovative and growing, and has the benefits of a small company in terms of not feeling too corporate, along with some of the benefits of a larger company.”
Renishaw is aiming to recruit a record 70 graduates this year in a variety of roles including electronic and mechanical engineering, physics, software, manufacturing and commercial.
