Working with us

Health Innovation Manchester is hosted by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 28,000 staff. Health Innovation Manchester brings together the best of the NHS with a culture that champions new ideas and innovation

We’re based at Citylabs, a world-class hub for health innovation and precision medicine, part of Europe’s largest clinical academic campus. It’s a great place to work, with easy access to Manchester City Centre and surrounded by health and university facilities.

We’ve embraced agile working, with staff combining on-site and remote working. This means that we can come together when it matters most and promote a healthy work-life balance.

Our culture is inclusive and welcomes anyone with a passion for innovation and a desire to make a difference. We are committed to promoting equality of opportunity, celebrating and valuing diversity. We are continuously working to improve our collective offer to staff in areas like health and wellbeing, benefits and flexible working.

We are positively challenging traditional organisational barriers which get in the way of care delivery. We want you to be able to enjoy working in environments which are efficient, responsive and holistic and we are empowering teams to create the conditions for this.

For most roles, the following types of flexibility are usually possible: flexible hours, compressed hours, part-time hours and/or job-sharing, and homeworking.

Many of our staff work flexibly in many different ways. Please talk to us at interview about any flexible working arrangements you would prefer or require. While we may not be able to fully accommodate all requests, such requests will not be referenced during the interview scoring process, and we will fully consider and try to accommodate them for successful applicants.
