Right now is Manchester’s time to shine. We’re preparing to launch our first ever major fundraising and volunteering campaign. To make that happen, we’re building an exceptional team of people to champion bold thinking that is rooted in impact.

At Manchester we don’t just focus on what we’re good at. We ask what we’re good for.

Through our teaching we’re educating a new kind of socially responsible graduate – tomorrow’s thinkers, doers, and leaders of a better world. Through our research we are addressing the most pressing global challenges with bold and brilliant solutions. Through innovation we are turning ideas into reality, creating the jobs and industries that will sustain us in the future. And in the heart of the city and beyond, we are breaking down barriers to art, science and learning to build stronger, more resilient communities.

Manchester people are different. Not only do we share the values of integrity, being bold, being ambitious, and being collaborative, we also share a pioneering spirit and the courage to make a difference. If you have a fearless personality, boundless optimism and a desire to create a healthier, fairer and more sustainable world, we’d love you to get in touch.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
