How to apply

  • Most MGT employers will ask you to submit a covering letter and CV. These can be uploaded directly to CareerConnect.
  • For some roles at The University of Manchester, you may be required to complete an application form. If so, this will be stated in the job advert with further instructions.
  • Application instructions will always be included in each specific job advert so please check the details carefully.
  • You must target your application towards the specific opportunity and the requirements outlined in the job description. See the Application and Interview Advice section of this website for support and guidance.

  • When you apply for a job via MGT, your application is forwarded to the recruiting organisation for consideration. When your application is shared with the recruiting organisation, the recruiter will then be responsible for your data.

We do not, and will not, disclose your information to any other third party. If you have any queries about this process please contact the MGT team via
