100 Best Companies to Work For 2018

100 Best Companies

We are pleased to announce that we have been placed in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For 2018 list. We are extremely proud to be the only University in the list for the third consecutive year.

The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies is the annual ranking of Britain's happy and motivated workforces. The lists are widely acknowledged as the most extensive research into employee engagement carried out in this country.

Our inclusion in the list is based on an independent survey which was sent to over 2,200 colleagues last October. The highest engagement score was for the question: 'I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation".

Thank you to all colleagues who responded to the survey.

For further information see our staff pages.

International Staff Support

international staff

We are proud that so many of our University colleagues are from overseas.

We recognise the unique challenges that our international staff members can often face when they come to the University from abroad. We have therefore developed a new web page dedicated for international staff to provide key information to support you, before and during your time at Sheffield. There is also a toolkit for managers who recruit international staff.

If you would like the opportunity to meet with a colleague from Human Resources to discuss the support that is available to you as an international member of staff.

There are 15-minute individual appointments available on the following dates:

Tuesday 6 March 2018, 2.00-3.30pm
Wednesday 4 April 2018, 2.00-3.30pm
Tuesday 1 May 2018, 2.00-3.30pm

To request an appointment, please visit the 1:1 Support Discussions web page.

Childcare Vouchers  - Deadline for Closure of the Scheme Extended


On Tuesday 13 March 2018 the Government agreed to extend the deadline for the closure of the Childcare Voucher scheme to new joiners for a further 6 months.

Prior to this we have communicated HMRC’s deadline for the closure of the University’s Childcare Voucher scheme and the action staff needed to take to meet the scheme deadline.

Following this new development we advise staff who are eligible to receive childcare vouchers to continue apply to join the scheme as normal. The Childcare Voucher Scheme will now close in October 2018 but the actual date has yet to be confirmed. The University will continue to monitor the situation for new developments and will advise of any further agreed changes closer to the revised deadline.

For further information including how to apply please see our webpage.
