Following the successful joint South Yorkshire LA bid to the European Social Fund, Sheffield City Council Opportunity Sheffield Team (the Employment and Skills Service of Sheffield City Council) is looking to recruit 1 x Project Support Officer to support the delivery of the Advance SCR & Advance Digital scheme. Advance SCR & Advance Digital are two separate initiatives proposed to drive the Sheffield skills agenda forward in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic and support both employers looking to grow and employees looking to retrain.

This post will form part of the core delivery team around the engagement of Sheffield based employers and will be tasked to support our businesses in accessing provision & funding to help their employees advance and their organisations grow. The core element we are looking for in this role is experience of employer engagement and business relationship management. Awareness of the regional skills agenda and projects/schemes to support this agenda is an advantage but not essential as full training will be provided.   

We are committed to fairness and social justice and welcome applications from everyone. We value our diverse workforce and aim to work together to make the most of our differences. Under the Disability Confident Scheme, disabled applicants, who meet the essential criteria of this job, are guaranteed an interview.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment.  All successful candidates will be required to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check.

Full-time employees work 37 hours for 52 weeks of the year and we offer a generous holiday entitlement. We are open to discussions about a wide range of flexible and remote working opportunities which benefit you and the Council.
