About us

Who we are

Placed at the heart of campus, the University of Manchester Students’ Union is the hub of student life. We understand better than anyone that student life isn’t just about studying. It’s about supporting change; helping students make friends, gain vital skills for life, enjoy new experiences and campaign on something important.

We’ve been facilitating that for the last 155 years. As the largest Students’ Union in the country, our mission is to be the voice of students at Manchester, effecting change and enriching student life together.

Our vision is for all students to feel part of the Manchester community where they can develop, prepare for their future and can make a difference in the world around them.

We promise; 

  • We’ll help you make the most of your time as a student
  • We’ll help you get the best future
  • We’ll help you discover and connect with Manchester
  • We’ll help you understand and change the world around you
  • We’ll build a truly outstanding Students’ Union

Staff Team:

We employ around 90 permanent staff to support a wide range of services to our student membership, as well as offering opportunities for approx. 250 student staff across our retail, catering and live music venues. 

Liberation and diversity are a huge part of the core union values; we are a welcoming workplace always ensuring that we create an inclusive and open culture. 

We welcome all applicants for all of our vacancies who possess the relevant skills & expertise, however, as black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) and disabled candidates are currently under-represented, we would particularly welcome applications from BAME and disabled applicants. 


There are lots of great reasons to work for us - you’ll meet some great people, learn some new skills and work with some highly committed and passionate student volunteers and leaders.

We also offer some great benefits:

  • 30 days paid holiday per annum as standard, plus 8 bank holidays and Christmas closure days
  • A range of pensions with the organisation matching contributions up to 8% of salary
  • Interest-free travel loans
  • Access to great training and conference events
  • The Students’ Union owns and runs the iconic Manchester Academy Venues and you can access complementary ticket to the best live music programme around.
