British Steel has launched a recruitment campaign for 75 new manufacturing trainees in Scunthorpe.
Described as an opportunity to join a business undertaking its biggest transformation in its history as it turns to technology and new processes to clean up steel-making, successful applicants can expect a starting salary of more than £22,000, rising to £25,000 after a year and £27,000 in 18 months, with a 30 per cent shift allowance for most, and 35 days holiday.
The latest cohort is being offered an “unrivalled training scheme”, providing a comprehensive and structured programme to develop industry and working knowledge alongside personal skills. Open to those aged 18 or over to satisfy shift working requirements, the ideal candidates have been described as being highly motivated, flexible, reliable, and enthusiastic individuals to join varied and diverse teams within the huge works.
British Steel production director Matt Stockwell said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people who want to quickly advance their careers, gain qualifications, and acquire new experiences. They will be joining a forward-looking company which is on the lookout for ambitious and motivated recruits who match and support its ambitions.
“We’re investing significant sums in our people and operations as well as exploring new technologies that will put our business on a truly sustainable footing. The right candidates can be assured of an unrivalled training scheme and the opportunity to develop their talents and abilities in a supportive environment.”
GCSE Maths and English at grade C (four) or above, and basic IT skills are seen as beneficial by the company, with full driving licence for motorbike or car also required. Manufacturing operational tasks include crane driving, machine and process operation, and materials handling.
