We are a world leader in the production of steel – producing over 2.8 million tonnes every year. Our steel is, and continues to be, fundamental in creating iconic, awe-inspiring structures around the world. It helps people travel, work, eat and socialise every day. More importantly it also helps keep us safe.

Working with Plant and Works managers, you will develop and manage robust systems for the measurement and reporting of carbon emissions suitable for the complex and evolving nature of our operations. Collectively with other key personnel, you will define and implement the Company’s carbon reduction strategies to meet legislative requirements and further enhance our products. You will engage directly with external stakeholders, including sector associations and regulators, to help shape climate change legislation and policy that will support a sustainable steel industry for the future in the UK.    


This is an important role that will play a pivotal part within the Company to mitigate the business risks from climate change, whilst maximising opportunities to provide sustainable solutions for our customers.


An excellent benefits package is available with this role including private healthcare, company car, private pension scheme, 35 annual leave days (including statutory days), family-friendly benefits and more.


What we need to know about you

Experience of working with government departments or sector associations in the development or reform of legislation would be beneficial.   


You will be capable of influencing internal stakeholders at all levels taking into account their individual departmental priorities. You must have a passion for identifying and driving schemes to deliver continuous improvements for the benefit of the Company, its employees and customers.


You should be someone with experience of working within a large and complex manufacturing operation. The ability to work to highly demanding deadlines is a prerequisite along with excellent communication skills.
