Sixty of the appointments have already been made, with half of them having started work during December. The remainder will join the company this month.
Britsh Steel said it is now looking to find an additional 64 manufacturing trainees who will be trained to perform roles including crane driving, forklift truck driving and machine operations.
British Steel Deputy CEO Paul Martin said: “We’re delighted to continue recruiting, underlining our commitment to investing in our people, our products and our future.
“These are excellent jobs, offering successful applicants first-class training and career prospects along with a good wage.”
The new trainees will be based in manufacturing areas across our Scunthorpe site and be directly involved in producing the company’s steel output.
Candidates must be aged 18 and over as this is a legal requirement in order to be able to work shifts. They will also be expected to have a full and valid driving licence, excellent communication skills and the ability to work well within a team environment.
