From clinical trials to digital tools, academic research to healthcare analytics, our work is wide-ranging, exciting and makes a difference to people’s lives.

Our culture:

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.
