Liberty Steel Group’s Speciality Steels business in South Yorkshire is hiring a new crop of apprentices as it looks to youth for a long-term greener steel future.

The manufacturer is offering 20 Level 3 and Degree apprenticeships in a variety of engineering specialisms, covering electrical, mechanical and materials across its South Yorkshire business. A further 10 apprentices will be hired across its other UK businesses.

“As someone who joined Speciality Steels as an apprentice over 40 years ago, I can testify to the positive impact the apprenticeship can have on a career in specialist engineering,” said UK HR Director Mick Hood.

“This is a business steeped in rich local heritage but one that also has a global reach. Apprentices at Liberty are part of an operation involved in the production of steel for civil aircraft undercarriages that land somewhere in the world on average every three seconds.”
