Magnet is the Young Professional organisation of Tata Steel Europe (TSE). The vision of Magnet is to empower Tata Steel young professionals to become future leaders and specialists. We aim to achieve this through organising fun and inspirational events that connect and develop the young professionals of TSE.
The Magnet was founded in 1989 in IJmuiden (then Koninklijke Hoogovens) as the platform for young academic employees to meet each other, learn more about the company and have some influence on the direction of the business. After the merger with British Steel and acquisition by the Indian steel producer Tata Steel, the Magnet went international.
Currently we can be found in different locations in Europe, which can be split into Magnet UK (Wales & England), Magnet MLE (IJmuiden), and Magnet DSO (all other businesses of Tata Steel in Europe). The focus of the Magnet is to organize events for employees of TSE younger than 36. These events focus on the categories Professional development, Networking, Corporate Social Responsibility, Social & Culture, and Sport & Health.
