British Steel hosts North Lincolnshire Jobs Fair at Scunthorpe site

British Steel will host the North Lincolnshire Jobs Fair this month, with hundreds of opportunities available from the company and the 19 other employers scheduled to attend including BAE, Tesco and the NHS.

The event – organised in conjunction with North Lincolnshire Council and Jobcentre Plus - will take place on January 25 and other organisations attending include Lebus, McDonald’s and Staffline (2 Sisters).

As well as people being able to register for job alerts, careers experts will be on hand to offer advice and British Steel and Tesco will stage mock job interviews and give tips on creating the perfect CV.

British Steel will be looking to fulfil its role as the community’s largest employer by showcasing current vacancies along with graduate opportunities, apprenticeship vacancies and more.

Paul Martin, British Steel’s HR and Business Services Director, said: “At British Steel we take our role in helping our community seriously, and by hosting the North Lincolnshire Jobs Fair we’ll be able to support local people of all ages and qualifications into work.

“The fair will host 20 employers, including ourselves, and will be the perfect chance for people to find a new job or seize a change in career. There will be prominent employers from an array of different sectors and a wide range of opportunities for people to explore.

“We’ve worked closely with North Lincolnshire Council and Jobcentre Plus to stage this event and I’d urge anyone looking for a new role or direction to come along.”

Cllr Rob Waltham, Deputy Leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: "After British Steel’s support with a number of the events during last October’s Festival of Skills and Opportunities, we were keen to hold another jobs fair with them and help more people back into work.

“We’ve got a buoyant job market in our area and as more and more businesses recognise North Lincolnshire as a fantastic place to do business and invest, new and exciting opportunities are becoming available.

“The British Steel jobs fair will bring together these local employers and help people realise their full potential.”

And Anne Brewster, Employer and Partnership manager for Jobcentre Plus said “We are really pleased to be working in partnership on this event for the people of North Lincolnshire. 

“We have had a great response from employers with vacancies, and we hope to provide some career advice, give those attending some labour market information as well as provide real support to help get through a job interview.

 “British Steel is a major employer in the area and it is great to work with them and North Lincolnshire Council on this event.”
