News: Tata Steel search for new apprentices


Tata Steel is once again starting its annual search for bright, talented and passionate young people to join its prestigious apprenticeship scheme.

Apprentice and graduate recruitment restarted for Tata Steel in South Yorkshire in 2010 following large scale restructuring in 2009. Over 2,000 people are employed by the Indian-owned company in South Yorkshire where sites like Stocksbridge and Aldwarke in Rotherham, focus on exceptional high-value products and sectors.

Apprentices at Tata Steel speciality steels in South Yorkshire get on-the-job training equipping them with the skills to make a real impact at one of the UK's largest manufacturers. Recruitment is underway for apprentices across engineering and technical disciplines as part of the Indian-owned steelmaker's strategy to deliver a sustainable future for the steel industry in South Yorkshire.

Mick Hood, HR director at Tata Steel, said: "At Tata Steel we understand the importance of investing in programmes which allow us to recruit and train the best people for the future success of the business.

"Apprentices who join Tata Steel speciality steels will be helping to create some of the most advanced safety-critical steels in the world supplying high-tech sectors like aerospace and automotive. The apprentices are an important part of ensuring that we have the essential skills we need for the future."

A state-of-the-art engineering training centre at its Stocksbridge site was extended in 2012. Converted from a disused workshop, the centre enables the company to train in-house and equip the apprentices with the specialist skills essential to meet the current and future needs of this industry.

Tata Steel Speciality Steels was named as the Large Employer of the Year at the regional final of the National Apprenticeship Awards 2014 and was recognised in The City & Guilds Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list 2014. Always in demand, the scheme has seen retention increase to 98% in the last five years.

The Apprenticeship Programme lasts for three years and to be eligible individuals must have achieved, or be expecting to achieve, at least five GCSEs at grade C or above including English, maths and a science subject.

Mick added: "We are looking for individuals who have innovative minds and skills that go beyond just pure academic ability – people who can really help to make a difference to this business."
