We are proud of being a progressive employer. Our aim is to be a great place to work, where we respect work life balance, support individual training and learning and create a positive work environment where staff are supported and encouraged to do their best.

We are an independent charity that exists to represent the needs and views of all 38,000 plus students at Manchester Metropolitan University.

There has been a Students’ Union for what we now call Manchester Metropolitan University since the 1920s. Over the last one hundred years, the role of The Union and the part it plays in student education and wellbeing has grown and developed into the organisation we are today.

Students are at the heart of what we do.
