About us

If you’re looking for a career that’s truly world-class, Tata Steel offers graduate and placement opportunities on a different scale. 

It’s a chance to join a global network, and be part of an exceptional commercial organisation that thrives on innovation and challenge. Our complexity, scale and ambition make us the perfect place to realise your talent and potential.

You’ll discover an organisation with the ambition and resources, backed up by the commitment to training and professional development, to help you realise your full potential. Our working culture thrives on innovation, encourages people to take responsibility, and recognises and rewards talent. You can expect to be challenged every day, but you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside professional experts who can help you achieve and exceed your own ambitions.

Our two-year graduate programme offers excellent opportunities for individuals who want to apply and develop their academic qualifications in a practical, real world setting. It’s an environment in which you can put what you have learned into practice. It offers a mix of on-the-job experience and practice-based learning, backed up by a thorough programme of formal training. At all stages in the process we’ll review progress with you to ensure that you are on track. Our graduate programme is just the beginning. Where you go next is up to you.

Our placement programme offers undergraduates the chance to develop hands-on commercial experience in a complex and large-scale professional working environment.

Our locations are spread across the UK and as well as being part of a global network our sites are also an integral part of their local landscapes and communities. Steelmaking is a defining part of many of our communities’ heritage and identity, and as a major employer Tata Steel plays a vital role in local economies. 

We’re proud of our role in shaping a better twenty-first century; and our culture is forged on core values that place integrity and responsibility firmly alongside our commercial ambitions.

If you’re looking for a next step that will stretch your skills, inspire you to achieve your professional potential, and give you all the support you need to do so, there’s no more exciting place to take your career to the next level.
