About Manchester Graduate Talent (MGT)


Whilst the Careers Service in the Atrium has had to close, the MGT team is still available to support you. We are continuing to receive applications for MGT opportunities currently being advertised and shortlisting will also progress in the majority of cases. We are asking our MGT hosts (both at the university and elsewhere) to use Skype and Facetime for interviewing purposes rather than face-to-face interviews for those applicants who are shortlisted.

As we continuously monitor the situation we will endeavour to keep you updated both on the MGT Facebook Group and via e-mail for updates regarding your individual application/s and progress.


MGT helps source paid graduate-level jobs for University of Manchester students graduating in 2020. We work with a range of organisations based in Greater Manchester, from start-ups to multi-national firms, plus recruiters within the University.

MGT vacancies cover a variety of sectors and a wide range of roles. They include both fixed-term contracts and permanent positions. To get an idea of the sort of roles on offer, see Meet the Graduates.

Many MGT roles are within SMEs (small to medium-sized enterprises) which can provide an excellent commercial experience upon which to build your career. Here’s an SME guide to help you make the most of working in a small business.

Although MGT is not a graduate scheme, it will give you a chance to use the skills you have developed at University, build up your professional network and fast track your career.

For more information, see our FAQs.

If you graduated from The University of Manchester in 2019, please see the eligibility criteria here.

Sophie, BA French and German

I’ve gained so much experience that would take years to build up elsewhere and tackled so many challenges in a supportive environment that my confidence in my abilities has rocketed. I could not recommend it more!
