Why work for us

The job is great fun, interesting and very varied. There is a real job to do promoting and supporting Manufacturing and Sheffield City Region/South Yorkshire. This is done mainly by supporting the Master Cutler of the day in the use of their platform both regionally and elsewhere particularly with the Livery Companies in London. The Chief Executive is welcomed into all Freemen’s works enabling further understanding of manufacturing in the region and there are also links to the Region with invariably good relations with the Lord Lieutenant, High Sheriff, Regional Mayor, Lord Mayor of Sheffield and Mayors of other boroughs as well as with their Chief Executives.

There is full support from experienced staff to cover the detail be it accounts, hospitality or Hall management. There is a significant degree of independence in the role as the Chief Executive is trusted/expected to get on with the day to day running of the business. Advice is available if required; the relationship with the Master and Chairmen of the various committees is very valuable and the small team is very effective.

The holder attends up to 45 livery dinners in London and elsewhere as well as many high end regional events allowing him or her to develop relationships and a very effective network.

Travel to and from Livery Dinners and other events along with overnight accommodation is expensed.

The post offers 23 days Holiday per year including the three days between Christmas and New Year as well as all bank holidays.

Finally, the Hall is magnificent. There can be few better places to work.
