We are a world leader in the production of steel – producing over 2.8 million tonnes of it every year. Our steel is, and continues to be, fundamental in creating iconic, awe-inspiring structures around the world. It helps people travel, work, eat and socialise every day. More importantly it also helps keep us safe.

Due to the nature of the job, there will be periods when the successful applicant will be expected to work shift patterns rather than the usual days. A current driving licence is essential as the job holder will be expected to travel within the UK.

An excellent benefits package is available with this role including pension, private healthcare, 35 annual leave days (including statutory days), family-friendly benefits and much more.
