39 apprentices launch their careers with British Steel

39 new apprentices are embarking on their careers with British Steel.

In Scunthorpe, we've recruited 29 new starters – 12 each on mechanical and electrical apprenticeships, and a further 5 on structural programmes.

At the same time, 6 apprentices have joined us at Teesside Beam Mill while a further 4 new people have started their training with the Special Profiles business at Skinningrove.

British Steel HR Director Derek Scott 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.”

Our apprentices will study towards a National Apprenticeship that will directly relate to the work they’re undertaking, and they’ll be rewarded with a progressive salary and benefits package.

Derek said: “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.”
