Economic Research Consultant

Sheffield Economic Overview: The Impacts of COVID and Economic Recovery We are seeking to commission a piece of work that pulls together the various strands of research and analysis of Sheffield's economy and the impact of COVID-19 into a coherent overview of recent economic activity to create a new economic evidence base for Sheffield. This will involve reviewing the data available, including data owned by Sheffield City Council (SCC) and partners. It will also require consultation with community organisations and businesses to understand issues at a community level (more details of this are set out in section 6 on the scope of the work). Drawing on the research and analysis from the evidence base, we want the consultants to develop an economic narrative for Sheffield that identifies the longer-term challenges and opportunities now facing the city. These will not all be directly related to COVID: some of the challenges will be long-term structural ones and the city has many existing assets that will be important for building resilience and strengthening key parts of the economy in the future. To reflect our ambition of Sheffield having an inclusive and sustainable economy, the narrative should encompass the importance of people and place. Consultation with partners will be important to understand their perspectives on challenges and opportunities.
