Indian-origin steel business magnet on recruitment drive in UK

Jun 10,2016

Indian-origin businessman Sanjeev Gupta today declared a recruitment drive to hire up to 100 positions at two steel plants in Scotland he had acquired from Tata Steel.

Gupta's Liberty House Group initiated recruitment for the newly reopened Dalzell and Clydebridge steel plants in Lanarkshire, which the international metals and industrial firm collected from Tata Steel in April.

While Liberty hopes to re-employ some former Tata employees who lost their jobs.

Liberty also plans to introduce a range of apprenticeship opportunities, with Modern Apprenticeships in Engineering, Finance and Commercial Planning, a Foundation Apprenticeship and a Graduate Apprenticeship.

Scotland’s economy secretary, Keith Brown, said: "I am delighted to see these plans for recruitment and the recommencement of steel production at Dalzell and Clydebridge, following the joint efforts of the task force involving unions, provincial authorities and the Scottish Government.

In its first recruitment phase, the firm aims to fill up to 100 positions, with the number increasing next year.

The company will spend the next few months recruiting for a huge range of roles, including production, finance, health and safety and administrative positions.
This agreement is to save the two Lanarkshire plants.

 The plants fall within Gupta's Green Steel vision for the UK, using renewable energy to soften the readily available supply of scrap in Britain. It represents a much needed change for the steel industry in the UK approving it to be more competitive, flexible and sustainable.

Liberty plans to create an end-to-end process that starts with the melting of UK recaptured scrap steel and continues through the manufacture and distribution of high-quality move past the steel products such as plate from the Scottish steel plants.
