About Opportunity Sheffield

Opportunity Sheffield is the employment and skills service in Sheffield City Council.

We help create job opportunities and break down barriers to employment, and help local businesses grow and develop a skilled workforce. We also give advice about financial incentives to employers for creating vacancies and apprenticeships.

Last year we engaged with over 4000 individuals and helped 2000 people get into work. Our programmes include Sheffield’s Working, Sheffield 100 Apprenticeship Scheme, Talent Sheffield and Skills Made Easy.

We work with businesses of all sizes and from all sectors – giving them advice and helping upskill their workforce.

Our service aims

Our aim is to create a vibrant local economy where employment rates are high, people are equipped with the skills they need and work serves as a route out of poverty.

To this end, we design, deliver and oversees a range of employability and skills programmes, geared at supporting local employers and people who are looking for work.
