Feeling at home

“As soon as I walked into the office I thought this feels like home, and everyone felt like family.”

Learning and development

We’re committed to helping our people do the best work. Your career with us should be rewarding, with lots of opportunities to build on your strengths, meet targets and goals, and learn new things.

We offer training courses, an engaging programme of e-learning, access to a library full of inspirational books, and more.

“I found the insights session we did really helpful. We found out what our key strengths were and how our personalities connect with others. I’ve put this into practice with my team and it’s helped me know when to adapt my working style to suit different individuals.”

Becky took part in our Stepping into Management course, which is our development programme for newly appointed front-line managers. Over one third of the participants have successfully progressed in their management career following completion of the course.

“I have completed both Emergency First Aid at Work training and Fire Safety Training. Being based at our Rockingham Street office, both training sessions gave me new skills and new knowledge which I can use to respond to serious emergencies and protect staff on site.”

Equality, diversity and inclusion

We believe the services we deliver are made stronger by having a diverse workforce. We are proud to say that we have signed up to the Disability Confident scheme for another year, and that we are an equal opportunity employer.

Flexible working

Wherever possible, we’ll help you to find a working arrangement that works best for you. This might be working part-time, a temporary reduction in hours, compressed hours, or a job share.

“To create a culture where people feel comfortable exercising their right to alternative work patterns, we need to be open and transparent about the diversity of working patterns in the business and lead it from the top. An executive job-share is a great way for an organisation to signal their commitment to flexible working.” – Juliann Hall

Staying connected

All our people have opportunities to spend time with and learn from each other. This year, we’ve enjoyed a shared lunch to celebrate International Women’s Day, a guest talk from Magid Magid (Sheffield’s youngest-ever Lord Mayor), events and conversations themed around Black Lives Matter, and more.

“It was amazing to have the opportunity to speak with such a prominent and inspiring figure in Sheffield.

The session felt very intimate despite it taking place over Zoom. There were so many smiles and even through tough and challenging discussions it was great to see everyone participate, listen and hopefully take something away from the session that will change their perspective.”
