About Manchester Graduate Talent (MGT)


The MGT team is continuing to advertise MGT 2020 opportunities. MGT hosts (both at the university and elsewhere) are using Zoom, Skype, Facetime and Teams for interviewing purposes rather than face-to-face interviews for those applicants who are shortlisted. If you are a 2021 graduate, join the MGT 2021 Facebook Group to hear first when MGT 2021 fully launches.


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.
