What you need to know about the role

Starting initially as a Junior Maintenance Engineer prior to progressing into the role of British Steel Maintenance Engineer, you'll be part of our team that manufactures high quality steel products for our demanding customers. You'll be involved in the maintenance and improvement of complex manufacturing processes and infrastructure.

You’ll be expected to generate continuous improvement proposals, turning them into viable solutions considering factors such as safety, manufacture, cost and quality – to name but a few. Your challenge is to meet our stringent safety and production requirements, whilst giving British Steel leading edge performance.

This is very much a hands-on role, being responsible for Mechanical maintenance activities within an area of our business on either the Scunthorpe or one of our Teesside sites. You will utilise modern diagnostic technology to ensure that the productive capability and reliability of the plant is optimised and improved for the ever-changing needs of the business.

Qualified to degree or HND level or equivalent in a mechanical engineering discipline, it will be a significant advantage if you have experience of working in a maintenance environment. Predominantly learning on the job under the supervision of our Engineering team, you will have opportunity to apply your academic knowledge in a practical environment. You will be somebody with an inquisitive mind, and somebody who likes to problem solve with the aim of improving the reliability of our plant to ensure it remains operational for our 24/7 manufacturing operations. We operate in an exciting fast paced industry where we support each other, therefore the ability to manage priorities to tight but achievable timescales is required, alongside the ability to work well as part of a team.

What we can offer you

We know our employees are our greatest asset and alongside the great benefits packages we offer, we continue to invest in their careers by providing a huge range of training and development opportunities.

Once established and having proven your capability, we offer extra career progression opportunities up to and including Senior Management level. We also offer an opportunity to work in different areas should you choose, experiencing different equipment and processes to further broaden your knowledge and skill base

We offer a comprehensive package of benefits to our people. Whatever your stage in life, you'll find a range of benefits to complement your work-life balance. The benefits you'll enjoy will include:

  • Entry into our defined contribution company pension scheme
  • Up to 35 days annual leave (including bank holidays)
  • A comprehensive Company sick pay scheme
  • A range of family friendly options and benefits
