8.7 Internal Training Facilities
The demand on the training room facilities are considerable and notice may
be required. Training rooms are limited and facilities in each may differ.
However, most training rooms display an equipment inventory. If any
equipment is borrowed from one training room for use in another it must be
returned at the end of the training. No equipment should be removed
from the Board Room, Lecture Theatre or Conference Room at the New
Mills site.
These facilities are used regularly. If you need to book a room please try to
book as far in advance as possible. Note: Not all of the rooms have the
same facilities so you are also advised to check what equipment is
available prior to booking. Also please ensure that you leave the rooms
in a suitable condition for others to use.
8.8 Career Opportunities
We firmly believe that in considering a vacancy, the best source of talent, in
most circumstances, is to be found within the company itself. Therefore, all
available positions are usually advertised internally first. These vacancies
are displayed on all company notice boards. Internal application forms are
available from insite, Reception and the Personnel Department.
Please quote the reference number for the vacancy on your application and
return to the Recruitment Officer in the Personnel Department.
8.9 Pre-retirement Courses
Renishaw organises a pre-retirement course for those who are approaching
retirement (usually those who are due to retire in the next five years).
Employee’s spouses/partners may also be invited to attend. The aim of the
course is to inform employees about the implications of retirement e.g.
pensions, health in retirement and financial matters.
