As Europe’s second-largest steel maker, with sites across the UK producing a wide range of steels for applications as diverse as food packaging, construction, rail, automotive and aviation, Tata Steel offers graduate and internship opportunities on a different scale. With a global network of steel production and processing facilities, and an exceptional commercial organisation, the company’s strong heritage and deep roots all contribute to a unique culture of commitment, quality and challenge.
“Our complexity, scale and ambition make us the perfect place to realise your talent and potential”, says David Scott, Tata Steel’s Recruitment Manager UK. “And whether you’re after internships for that crucial workplace experience, or taking the first step your career, candidates will find a business where the standards and ambition match their own, where they can hit the ground running, and where big ideas will find the resources they need to succeed.”
Tata Steel’s Graduates take on significant responsibility from day one. They’re rewarded well for it, though, with a competitive salary and excellent benefits including membership of professional bodies, access to a mentor and support in studying for further professional qualifications. Internships, which can last from 3 to 12 months, also attract a competitive salary and benefits. “There’s another unique aspect to our Internship programme”, adds David Scott.
“Those who perform to a consistently high level during your placement and then return to the company in a graduate role can apply for one of two annual sponsorships – the splendidly named Armourers and Brasiers' Placement of the Year Awards – which recognise the contribution your talent will make to our business.”
Scott is looking for applications from those with a track record of achievement throughout their education, and an existing interest in one of Tata Steel’s diverse business areas. “We hire analytical thinkers, with the ability to rapidly assimilate and apply new concepts, and a positive attitude to the opportunities they’ll encounter”, he says. “So there’s no question that for the best emerging talent in the industry, Tata Steel’s the only place to shape your career.”
