Working in Manchester

We’re proud of our consistently high levels of staff satisfaction – in our latest staff survey, 94% of respondents said that the University is a good place to work, and 92% said they’re proud to work here.

By choosing to work in Manchester, you’ll not only be joining a great institution – you’ll also be making a home in one of the most celebrated of British cities. Our city region is a big part of our identity, and the University and the city have long worked together to ensure its success. The city was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, and our predecessor institutions opened the doors of education to the working classes of Manchester.

The city has always had an independent spirit, with political movements such as Chartism, trade unionism and the suffragettes – who included Manchester graduate Christabel Pankhurst among their leaders – having Mancunian roots.

Today’s Manchester combines that pioneering drive with industrial and civic innovation, such as in Corridor Manchester, the hub of the city’s knowledge economy, chaired by Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, the University’s President and Vice-Chancellor.

And it’s an international city. You’ll be well connected – London is reachable by rail in two hours, while Manchester Airport serves more than 200 global destinations.
