“I’d urge any interested parties to visit the Careers page on the Sheffield Forgemasters website in the first instance and apply through the relevant apprenticeship link.”

Sheffield Forgemasters is a major employer in the Sheffield City Region, with 600 employees and an apprenticeships programme which makes up around ten per cent of its workforce at any one time.
