39 apprentices begin careers with British Steel
A total of 39 new apprentices have begun their careers with British Steel at its sites in Scunthorpe, Teesside and Skinningrove.
In Scunthorpe, the company has recruited 29 new starters – 12 each on mechanical and electrical apprenticeships, and a further five on structural programmes. At the same time, six apprentices have joined the company at Teesside Beam Mill, while a further four have started their training with the Special Profiles business in Skinningrove.
The apprentices will study towards a national apprenticeship that will directly relate to the work they are undertaking, and will be rewarded with a progressive salary and benefits package.
Derek Scott, HR director at British Steel, said: “We’re delighted to welcome our new apprentices to British Steel. Given the huge levels of investment across the company and the major changes we’re undertaking on the road to net zero, they have a fantastic opportunity to support the transformation of our business.
“We’ll give them first class training and support, and they now have the chance to build an excellent career with British Steel. All our apprentices were appointed after a rigorous selection process so they should be proud they’ve been chosen. They are the next generation of steelmakers and I’ve every confidence they’ll be huge assets to British Steel.”
