This is an exciting time to join the Sheffield City Region Executive Team.

The Mayoral Combined Authority and the Sheffield City Region LEP are a strong public-private sector partnership driving inclusive economic growth across our region, building on investment that has already created 37,000 jobs in the last four years.

We’ve got ambitious plans for transport, for business growth, for skills and employment and for inward investment – and now we’re inviting you to join us. 

The Sheffield City Region Executive Team is seeking an experienced, innovative and motivated press and communications officer to join a fast-paced communications team working for Mayor Dan Jarvis and the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
