The employees were recruited by contractor Amey and each chose a specialism in everything from highway maintenance and street lighting to administration.

Business apprentice Jamie Frith, aged 21, of Southey Green, said: “I feel proud to be part of something that is going to change Sheffield for the better.”

Council leader Julie Dore said: “We are committed to working with businesses to create opportunities to help young people into work.”
