Tenancy here is very appealing: we take a flexible approach to the way our members want to work, and both our rents and our clerking fees are very competitive. The standard of living in the surrounding areas is great, and we’re just 5 miles from the Peak District. Sheffield is a vibrant and multi-cultural city with two established universities, lots of live music and a proud heritage.
As for equality and diversity, we’re doing pretty well. A third of those who work here are women, although we’d like to bring that up to fully 50%. 12% of us are non-white, and age groups are evenly represented. 92% of us went to state schools and 48% of us were the first in our families to go to university. 28% have caring responsibilities. And of course we have the first BME Silk in Sheffield.
