Sheffield 'one of best cities in UK' to find a job


Sheffield has been rated as one of the best cities in the UK to find a job.

Research by employment website CV-Library showed that vacancies increased by 13.7 per cent in the city in March compared with the previous month.

In addition, job applications rose by 16.7 per cent.

This puts Sheffield fourth on a list of the top 10 cities offering the highest number of vacancies, behind Birmingham, Brighton and Liverpool.

However, salaries saw a slight dip of 2.7 per cent last month.

Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, said: "It’s great to see that business confidence is keeping strong in Sheffield and the promising rise in job numbers is particularly good news for candidates looking for new opportunities.

"With spring now upon us, this could be the perfect time to freshen up your career."
