Jobs in Sheffield

Situated in South Yorkshire , Sheffield was a prominent player in the steel industry for hundreds of years. This began with the manufacture of cutlery in the 1500s and grew with the discovery of crucible steel in the 1740s.

Further innovations included Sheffield plating and the creation of stainless steel, an important development in the industrial revolution that led to a significant increase in the city's population. By the 19th century, the city had become pivotal in the steel industry.

Ironwork and coal mining were also big business in the region, while the outlying areas produced limestone - including the stone used to build the Palace of Westminster.
 
In the 1970s and 1980s, Sheffield suffered economically as the coal industry collapsed and the iron and steel industries struggled with international competition. Over the last ten years, however, the city has experienced a rebirth and it is now a fashionable destination known for its shopping and green spaces.

Today, the only remaining steelworks is Forgemasters. The city's economy has moved on and for those seeking vacancies in Sheffield, the major industries now include telecommunications, manufacturing and construction. Some of the top employers include BT, Land Instruments International, Barclays and Swann Morton.
