British Steel launches recruitment drive to build sustainable future

British Steel is looking for 80 graduates and apprentices to support the biggest transformation in its history.

The company has pledged to invest in a range of technologies to build a clean, green and sustainable future for British Steel.

To support the drive to deliver net-zero steel, it is looking to recruit the next generation of steelworkers.

HR director, Derek Scott, said: “This is a hugely exciting time for our business and we have a wide-range of opportunities for people to join us and build fantastic careers.”

British Steel is currently advertising for 30 graduates to join in September at its locations across the UK. These include opportunities in mechanical engineering and electrical engineering roles while there are also graduate positions in sales and marketing, procurement, technical and manufacturing.

All of British Steel’s graduate positions offer competitive starting salaries and as well as training and development opportunities.

50 new apprentices are needed to join the business in Scunthorpe and Teesside. The successful applicants will enrol on three-year training programmes for engineering roles (mechanical, electrical and fabrication & welding trades) and technical positions.

British Steel apprenticeships are ideal for those wanting to continue studying while gaining practical experience within the workplace.

Apprentices will study towards a national apprenticeship that will directly relate to the work they’re undertaking. They’ll be rewarded with a progressive salary and benefits package.

Mr Scott added: “Steel is vital to modern economies and we’re investing in our business and our people to ensure we keep supplying the steel society needs. Our transformation is well underway and our new apprentices and graduates will play key roles in helping us build a net zero future.”
