Home of the Crucible and Lyceum Theatres, the Millennium galleries and Jarvis Cocker. Sheffield has a strong cultural heritage and reputation for innovation and quality. Although traditionally renowned for steel manufacturing, Sheffield has adapted and regenerated as one of the top business locations in the UK.
Fastest growing economy outside London.
Expanding from traditional manufacturing to a more diverse and modern economy base, Sheffield has quickly developed into one of the fastest growing cities in Britain, with the fastest growing economy of any major city outside London. Traditionally used as a stamp of quality, innovation and reassurance on its products, the totem ‘Made in Sheffield’ is ingrained within our culture, still as a signifier of quality, but now across industries, sectors and genres.
Although manufacturing has streamlined, over 33,000 people are still employed within the industry, moving towards more advanced and specialised manufacturing and food processing and thus contributing more £810 million to the economy, with this figure rising each year. The public sector also plays a huge part in the employment of people within the city, with public services such as education and health employing over 70,000 people.
Other industries and sectors important to the economy of Sheffield and with plans for further investment and continued growth include construction, financial and business services, digital and creative industries, sport and leisure, healthcare technologies.
As these industries continue to grow, it remains vitally important that management and staff are protected and educated in current HSE first aid industry standards and health and safety requirements.
