I am pleased to invite you to a Three-day employment and skills event, that Levelling Up Futures in Sheffield is hosting in partnership with The Source.

The event is open to all schools and colleges across Sheffield. It is free for Employers and provides a great opportunity to promote your sector, business, apprenticeships and vacancies to hundreds of Sheffield students and young people looking for work.

We already have some great Employers signed up like Meadowhall, NHS, The Civil Service and Gulliver’s but there is space for approximately 35 Employers each day.

Secure a Place

If your Business would like a presence at this event, contact and let her know:-

  • Which day you would like to reserve a space in the employer area, and if you can stay all day. We ask where possible Employers stay for the duration of the event on your allocated day/s (9.30 to 15.00) , as schools will be arriving at different times.
  • If you and your people can support with CV writing, Mock Interviews and Soft skills and on which day.
  • We are also mindful that our student population is diverse, and they come from a range of backgrounds and ethnicities. Whilst we welcome employer representatives and volunteers from all backgrounds, we also understand the enhanced value of young people being able to meet with role models who are relatable to their lived experiences.

This is such exciting event for the city and our young people and great to see people across all sectors coming together to make this a success.

Kind regards,
