Work and employment

We are a major regional employer with significant job opportunities for people in our local communities.

We are a community of more than 11,000 employees, many of whom are local residents from across our city region. We have a huge variety of jobs, ranging from support roles in administration, catering, security, technical and maintenance, through to more traditional academic and professional services positions.

We are leading a unique, award-winning employment initiative called The Works, which is actively transforming local people’s life chances. The Works, which has centres based in the heart of our local communities in Moss Side and Ardwick/Gorton, supports local people to find jobs, develop skills and access training courses and financial advice. We regularly advertise our job vacancies through The Works – in fact, some vacancies are only advertised here.

We also undertake leading research into work and employment, particularly around fairness at work issues such as workplace diversity, fair pay and discrimination.
