International Talent

Want to gain work experience and use your language skills?

International Talent helps source paid jobs for The University of Manchester students who possess language skills or have knowledge of non-UK cultures.

We work with a range of organisations based in Greater Manchester, from start-ups through to multi-national firms to source hundreds of vacancies which require language skills and/or international experience. Vacancies cover a variety of sectors and a wide range of roles.

Last year we advertised over 200 vacancies that specifically required a range of language skills including Mandarin, Arabic, Russian, Cantonese, French, German, Italian, Bengali, Polish, Romanian, Japanese and Punjabi to name a few.

Who is the scheme open to?

For international, language students and bilingual students who want to use their language skills to find work in Greater Manchester.
