Research and Development

Richie Hart - Process Technology Manager

"We work with the research and development group and we take those research ideas and translate them into something that delivers value for us as a business."

Our Research & Development (R&D) team combines inventiveness with cutting-edge technology to deliver steel products fit for the twenty-first century. Our clients’ needs are constantly evolving so we work in close alliance with them, getting to grips with their businesses and their marketplaces, in order to understand their complex requirements. Our innovative steel products enable them to push the boundaries of what is currently possible, offering the support and technical expertise they need to design new products and create pioneering new applications.

We pride ourselves on our ability to step up to any challenge. From assessing products on an industrial scale to undertaking modelling or simulation studies for prototyping and application development, our state-of-the-art technology and steady investment in our people and infrastructure allows us to enhance and develop the quality and performance of our materials. Yet our focus isn’t just on the end product; we also undertake the process analysis and design projects that enable thinking to develop and new solutions to emerge. 

At Tata Steel, we pride ourselves on our world-class products, processes and people. We value individuality and believe that exposing people to genuine challenges on live research projects fosters creativity and allows potential to be fulfilled. You’ll be exposed to real science from the outset and we expect you to relish the opportunity to show us what you’re made of.

Group Environment

Our engineers operate on a scale and precision not even imagined by many other sectors. This is an opportunity to play a crucial role in the life cycle management of our unique equipment. We want you to understand how Group Environment fits into and benefits our broader business, so you’ll also complete placements beyond the Group Environment function. This could be on any one of a multitude of key stakeholder sites, businesses or projects, such as in a manufacturing unit, Technical department, or Business Improvement team. In an organisation of our size, the possibilities are considerable.

Human Factors

As a Human Factors graduate you will join the Safety, Health, and Environment department where you will work alongside the Human Factors specialist and other process safety specialists to provide an expert service to the whole of the business in the area of Human Factors. This includes human error reduction, task analyses, procedures improvement, alarm handling, incident investigation and many other Human Factors topics. The focus will be on minimising human error in Tata Steel's safety critical tasks.
