This story is over

British Steel is looking to recruit 30 more manufacturing trainees in Scunthorpe.

The company has already employed more than 500 new people since its launch last year and the new recruits will join 18 other manufacturing trainees who joined the company earlier this year.

They were the first trainees of their kind to join the Scunthorpe business in more than a decade and, like them, the new employees will be trained to perform a variety of roles including crane driving, fork lift truck driving and machine operations.

British Steel’s new trainees will be based in manufacturing areas across the company’s Scunthorpe site and will be directly involved in producing the company’s annual 2.8 million tonne steel output.

The salary for the roles starts at £19,000 plus shift allowance (where applicable) in year one progressing to circa £22,000 plus shift allowance (where applicable) in year two, following successful completion of training and qualifications.

Candidates must be aged 18 and over and will also be expected to have a full and valid driving licence, excellent communication skills and the ability to work well within a team environment.

Paul Martin, British Steel Managing Director, said: “If we’re to build a sustainable business it’s vital we continue to invest in our most important asset, our people, and that is why we are excited to be offering these new roles.

“Our employees are highly-skilled, are passionate about the products they make and proud to work for British Steel and the new trainees will be guaranteed first class training and the opportunity to build exciting new careers.”
