Finding us:

Sheffield Assessment Centre is based within The Balance, an office building on Pinfold Street in central Sheffield. On arrival at the building, report to the main building reception on the ground floor and tell them you are there to see Contact Associates on the 7th floor in the Regus office. They will give you a visitor's badge.

If you wish to be met at the main reception on the ground floor, please ask the receptionist to phone the Regus reception and request that the assessor comes down and meet you.

If you wish to make your own way up to the centre, you can take the lift or the stairs up to the 7th floor.  The reception  on this floor is to the left of the lift area and in front of the stair well. You can use your visitor's badge to get through the door - hold the badge up to the access panel on the left of the door and it will beep to unlock the door. Reception can also let you in. Once at this reception, tell them that you are there to see Contact Associates and they will arrange for the assessor will come and meet you.

Additional car parking is available via an entrance at the rear of the building on Townhead Street - just let us know when you book the assessment that you need a space. The centre is about a 10 minute walk from Sheffield train station and is a short walk from both Sheffield Universities.
