Based in Croydon, London UK, Centronic is a well-established engineering and manufacturing business. Serving a range of exciting and demanding industries, and working closely with some of the largest companies in the world, we are always keen to hear from talented individuals with a can-do attitude to become part of our team.

World Leading Company

Centronic is a world leading manufacturer of radiation detectors, partnering with major OEMs through to small, growing companies across several challenging and exciting industries. Our company has served the nuclear industry for 70 years, and alongside this strong heritage, we have a highly experienced team who are specialised in serving customers in diverse and demanding markets.

1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain

Centronic is proud to have been selected as one of “1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain” in a London Stock Exchange report published in the Daily Telegraph. In this landmark business report, the LSE identified 1,000 of the UK’s most notable small and medium sized enterprises. This is a great recognition of Centronic’s experienced and dedicated teams, product expertise and customer service.

Continuous Professional Development

Centronic is committed to attracting and retaining the most talented and diverse employees, and to providing ongoing opportunities in a rewarding and dynamic work environment. We view recruitment as an integral part of our future. Centronic supports and encourages continued professional development to ensure that all employees play their part in our future story. Through regular meetings, and annual appraisals, training programmes are developed and encouraged to maximise each employees potential.


University isn’t for everyone and here at Centronic we have a fantastic alternative. Apprenticeships at Centronic are all about picking up new skills and lots of them. It's 1 or 2 years of relevant training and lots of exposure to manufacturing and engineering.

If you’ve decided to dive straight into the world of work after school or college we believe our apprenticeship is a professional and worthwhile experience.

We offer Apprenticeships in Engineering and Manufacturing and with a variety of different roles available we should have something to suit you.

And that's not all - when you join Centronic as an apprentice it is not just about training and qualifications. We have your long-term professional career in mind.

Internships & Work Experience Opportunities

We have opportunities throughout the year for students to come and work with us to gain valuable experience in the industry, to have exposure to cutting edge technologies and to work with some of the best engineers and scientists in their field.


We aim to recognise internal talent and achievement through our monthly SPIRIT award, which rewards employees and/or teams for things like going above and beyond their usual duties to support the business, working with others to improve processes and practices, or identifying savings.

We are a Living Wage Employer!

We made a commitment earlier this year to be a Living Wage employer. Different to the National Minimum Wage, the real Living Wage is based on the cost of living and is voluntarily paid by over 5,000 UK employers who believe a hard day's work deserves a fair day's pay.
