The increase in steel production at one of British Steel's plants in Teesside has resulted in more jobs in the area. The company announced that it is hiring 66 new employees to support the expansion of production at its Skinningrove facilities, as well as about 80 people at its large Scunthorpe facility.
In addition, 25 intern positions are being created at the company's headquarters in North Lincolnshire.
Recall that in March of this year, British Steel was bought out from the official liquidator appointed by the UK government, the Chinese steel group Jingye Group
“Since launching our new business in March, Jingye Group has made significant investments in our business and our people. This allowed us to maintain production growth and continue to grow the business. This is a great opportunity for people to join us and play an important role in the ongoing transformation of British Steel, "commented British Steel CEO Ron Deehlen, resonating for the troubled region of Britain.
Most of the specialties that have been recruited include crane control, machine and process control, forklift driving and miscellaneous jobs.
“We are currently working around the clock, from Monday to Friday. Our new manufacturing operators will help us achieve this and help meet the growing global demand for our specialist products, ”said Skinningrove Plant Manager David Hogg.
