Graduates get an award-winning benefits package from Renishaw

Global engineering company, Renishaw, has won praise for its benefits package for graduate employees in a national award.

The Gloucestershire-based company was highly commended in the graduate employer benefits category at The Job Crowd Awards 2017.

The award recognises Renishaw's benefits package for graduate employees, which includes a nine per cent non-contributory pension, annual pay rises, discretionary bonuses, BUPA healthcare and on-site gym.

The Job Crowd Awards are based on anonymous reviews from graduate employees working in companies across the UK.

In 2017, Renishaw recruited 45 graduates across its eight schemes. Graduate roles include software engineers, commercial graduates, mechanical design engineers, applications engineers, electronic engineers, manufacturing engineers, physics and scientific roles and project coordinators.

The two-year scheme includes a six-month rotation between different divisions of the company. Graduate employees are mentored, trained and able to work towards chartered status. On completion of the programme, employees are offered a position in one of Renishaw's products divisions.

Sam Bishop, of Renishaw, said: "A graduate role at Renishaw is flexible, so employees can explore the different options available and identify the career path they wish to pursue.

"Renishaw offers graduates a platform to develop and progress quickly. As a global company, we offer hundreds of possible career paths across the world from additive manufacturing to software for neurosurgery."

Head of communications Chris Pockett (pictured) added: "A number of directors and senior managers started as graduates or apprentices and have progressed through the company. It is encouraging to have such positive feedback from our graduate staff."
