British Steel: One year on


Yesterday (9 March) marked the first anniversary of the new British Steel, with this brings a more sustainable future and opportunities for apprenticeships

Commitment and flexibility have enabled British Steel to maintain safe operations, and iron and steel production, throughout the pandemic.

This money will be invested in new technology in a drive to reduce emissions, maintain equipment, ensure production, reduce costs, support clean growth and protect and create new jobs.

During British Steel’s first year it has achieved significant operational improvements, launched new products, introduced 24-7 operations at its Teesside and Skinningrove mills and resumed operational control of Immingham Bulk Terminal.

Apprenticeship opportunities

The company is looking to start building the next generation of steelmakers by recruiting 24 apprentices to work at its Scunthorpe headquarters.

The successful applicants will enrol on 3-year training programmes for mechanical and electrical roles.

The positions are in addition to 31 manufacturing trainees who’ve joined the business since December.

Apprentices will complete a maintenance and operations engineering technician apprenticeship that will directly relate to the work they’re undertaking.

They’ll be rewarded with a progressive salary and benefits package.

Training will be delivered in partnership with North Lindsey College. The first part of the programme will be spent at the apprentice training centre in Scunthorpe, where the new recruits will be prepared for going out into plant areas.

The remainder of the apprenticeship is spent plant-based, working in Steelmaking, Ironmaking, Energy and Infrastructure or in one of our mills, alongside further study in the apprentice centre.
