MFT Charity is excited to grow our team as we prepare a transformational campaign for our much-loved Manchester hospitals, including Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, MRI and Wythenshawe Hospital.

Bringing together 10 hospitals and community services from across Manchester, Trafford and beyond, we champion collaborative working and transformation, encouraging our 28,000 workforce to pursue their most ambitious goals. We set standards that other Trusts seek to emulate so you’ll benefit from a scale of opportunity that is nothing short of extraordinary.
We’re proud to be one of the major academic research centres and education providers in England and Research and Innovation is the heart of all we do, providing you with a robust infrastructure to encourage and facilitate high-quality research programmes. We’re also excited to be embarking on our new Green Plan which will set out how MFT continues to play its part in making healthcare more sustainable and tackling climate change.
At MFT, we create and foster a culture of inclusion and belonging, provide equal opportunities for career development that are fair, open and transparent, protecting your health and wellbeing and shaping the future of our organisation together.
