Work For Us

At Sheffield Futures we understand that high quality services need to be responsive to both the long and short term
needs of our service users and our stakeholders. We are committed to ensuring that we provide high quality service
user experiences, wherever and however young people engage with us.
We can only achieve this through the skills and dedication of our staff. We are committed to promoting professional
development to meet the needs of our service users.
The voice of young people is at the heart of all that we do at Sheffield Futures and they are involved at every stage of
shaping our services, through providing opportunities for them to influence the people and policies that affect them.


    Sheffield Futures commits to the ACEVO Diversity Principles:

    1. Acknowledge that there is a problem with racial diversity in the charity sector and commit to working to change that.
    2. Recognise the important role leaders have in creating change by modelling positive behaviour and taking action.
    3. Learn about racial bias and how it impacts leadership decisions.
    4. Commit to setting permanent and minimum targets for diversity that reflects the participants, donors, beneficiaries and the population of the area that my charity operates in.
    5. Commit to action and invest resources, where necessary, in order to improve racial diversity in my charity.
    6. View staff as the sum of many parts rather than a single entity and recruit to build a diverse group of talented people collectively working towards a shared vision.
    7. Recruit for potential, not perfection.
    8. Value lived experience, the ability to draw from one’s lived experience and to bring insights to an organisation that can develop its work.
