Manchester

More than a job, this is Manchester.

Block Image
A city of boundless creativity, innovation and culture.

The first public library, the first passenger railway, and the first football league. The birthplace of the suffragette movement, vegetarianism, and Vimto.

The inventors of graphene, submarines and modern computing. Manchester is the place where people have always dared to be different and think differently.

Manchester's local government, helping our diverse residents and communities to be the best they can be

Manchester’s come a long way in the last ten years. In 2015, we asked people to imagine their dream Manchester. The Our Manchester Strategy, for the decade from 2015 to 2025, grew from these ambitious hopes for the city.

The people of Manchester achieved a lot and we’re continuing towards that vision of a world-class city. We’re known for our sport, science, creativity, tolerance and warm welcome.

This growing international standing is boosting our local economy too, outgrowing every other UK city. We’re now developing our next ten-year strategy with residents, with ambitions to tackle gaps in health, wealth and opportunity.

Building a Greener Future. Body

We're serious about becoming a Zero Carbon City by 2038. Left aligned text with right image - As part of this ambitious plan, all staff take part in Carbon Literacy training. By learning about carbon and how to reduce it, we can all play a part in shaping a more sustainable future.

Our Behaviours
It takes a certain type of behaviour, attitude and way of working to get Manchester where it wants to be. Our people and partners have agreed five ‘behaviours’ – the grounding for how we must work together and treat one another:
We take time to listen and understand
We work together and trust each other
We show that we value our differences and treat each other fairly
We ‘own it’ and we’re not afraid to try new things
We’re proud and passionate about Manchester
