Page Personnel recruitment in Sheffield
Sheffield is Yorkshire's second-largest city behind Leeds, with a population in excess of 500,000 people. Along with London, Birmingham and Glasgow, the five represent the UK's official biggest cities. Of the half-million local residents, 385,000 are aged between 16 and 64 according to ONS figures, representing the vast majority of Sheffield's workforce.
Page Personnel work with candidates of all ages to place talented individuals where they are needed by local businesses. We also consult with clients to help hiring managers across the city and its surrounding area to appoint applicants with not just the right skill set, but also the right attitude and ambition to help Sheffield firms to thrive.
Graduates play an important part in the Sheffield recruitment market. Every September, the city's population swells by around 60,000 due to the returning student cohort. The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University account for much of this. Sheffield Hallam University also supports two University Technical Colleges in Sheffield, namely UTC Sheffield City Centre and UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park. Here, younger students are encouraged to study STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects at ages ranging from 13 to 19.
Anyone who has walked or cycled around the Yorkshire city will be aware of its hills, with some unusually steep roads to be found in the city centre and its surroundings. The geography leads to several rivers flowing through the city too, including the confluence of the Don and the Sheaf. The natural environment makes Sheffield a pleasant place to live and work, with a third of the city officially inside the boundaries of the Peak District.
