40 new jobs announced at British Steel in Scunthorpe

British Steel have announced 40 new jobs at their Scunthorpe plant, with salaries starting from £18,000, and rising to £24,000 after two years.

The company is looking to recruit Manufacturing Trainees at the site, all of whom will receive a full apprenticeship.

Applicants are required to have a Level 4 or above in GCSE Maths and English.

They will also need a valid driving licence.

The description for the new roles says:

“This is an exciting opportunity to gain extensive training and experience with a leading steel manufacturer.

“Initially you will be part of a cohort of Manufacturing Trainees who will receive a comprehensive and structured Apprenticeship programme consisting of both on and off the job training.

“This will help you develop your manufacturing knowledge and personal skills ultimately allowing for transition into Operator roles.

“The role will see you support Team Leaders within a manufacturing area to ensure all plant operational production targets are met to the highest quality delivering first rate customer service to the highest health and safety standards.”

A spokeswoman for British Steel said:

“We’re currently recruiting up to 40 Manufacturing Trainees to work at our integrated steelworks site in Scunthorpe.

“The successful candidates will undertake a structured training programme, leading to a professional qualification and the chance to secure a permanent role with us.”

British Steel was taken over by Chinese firm Jingye in March, almost a year after it went into administration.

Last month, British Steel requested £100m from the British government to help the firm through the coronavirus crisis.

They say they have continued working through the lockdown period, with new steps implemented to keep workers safe.

Chief Executive Ron Deelen issued a statement during the lockdown saying:

“Actions we’ve taken include reducing production, social distancing where safe and practicable, providing face masks, improved cleaning standards and producing our own hand sanitiser gel.

“We’re preparing to start temperature checks for all people (including employees) visiting our sites and our occupational health team is offering expert care and guidance to our people.

“We’ve also asked contractors on our sites to take the appropriate measures.”
