Could you play a key role in developing over 40,000 young people at a crucial time in their lives, equipping them with skills for today and for their future?

As the largest Students’ Union in the country, our mission is to be the voice of students at Manchester, in one of the top 10 most exciting cities in the world. Student life isn’t just about studying; it’s about supporting change, helping students make friends, gaining vital skills for life, enjoy new experiences and campaign on important issues. We’ve been facilitating that for the last 155 years across a diverse group of students and have recently invested significantly to provide the best possible student facilities.

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