SSI kicks off recruitment drive in Redcar

A Thai steel company that bought a mothballed plant in Redcar in the North-east of England, will today start its search for 1,000 employees.

The plant had been shut down by Corus, formerly British Steel, in February last year at the cost of 1,600 jobs. It was subsequently bought by Thailand's Sahaviriya Steel Industries (SSI) which starts its recruitment drive from today.
