British Steel is recruiting 66 new employees to support increased production at its operations in Scunthorpe and Teesside. The company, which is maintaining production during the pandemic, is looking to recruit 41 people into manufacturing roles at its Special Profiles business in Skinningrove. The vacancies at Skinningrove are for manufacturing operators whose roles will include crane driving, machine and process operation, forklift driving and manual handling. British Steel currently operates 24 hours a day, Monday to Friday but is moving to a 24-7 operation in the Spring and new operators will support it
The company’s Skinningrove mill, which already employs around 300 people, manufactures a range of specialist products including track shoes and cutting edge profiles for use in the yellow goods industry. It’s also a market leader in the production of crane rail, which is used in ports and factories across the globe, and shaft guides for use in underground mining.
The permanent positions in Scunthorpe are for manufacturing operators who will initially join the business as manufacturing trainees under a traineeship before moving on to support team leaders within a manufacturing area to ensure plant operational production targets are met to the highest quality, delivering first rate customer service to stringent health and safety standards.
A further 25 trainee positions at its headquarters in North Lincolnshire are opened. These new jobs are in addition to the 40 the company created in May which has enabled it to introduce an extra shift at its Teesside Beam Mill.
