We really value the difference you make at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. To express our appreciation - and show how much we care about you - we offer a wide range of benefits and opportunities for development.

Professional Development

Whatever stage you are at in your working life, we are proud to offer a range of opportunities for professional development.

If your NMC registration has lapsed, we can help you Return to Practice. In partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University, we have developed a programme leading to paid employment and renewed registration, with a guaranteed job available on completion.

Or, if you are just beginning your nursing journey following qualification, our 12-month Preceptorship programme is designed to ease the transition. You will enjoy pastoral support and guidance, alongside study sessions and meetings with named Preceptors.

Everyone who joins us benefits from a comprehensive induction programme. As you develop, grow and change, you will have the advantage of a personal development plan to support lifelong learning.

Health & Wellbeing

We want to make it easy for you to live a happy, healthy life. So we are delighted to offer discounts on everything from bikes and accessories, through to care plans spanning dental, optician and physiotherapy care. You can also save on membership of local leisure centres and Weightwatchers classes. What’s more, our staff podiatry clinic provides a free assessment and care plan.


We want to help you make your money go further. For example, you may be able to save on registered childcare by purchasing vouchers deducted from your salary. We also offer interest free loans of up to 100% of the value of a travel season ticket.


We recognise that flexibility around time away from work is important. Everybody has different needs. So, depending on the nature of your contract, you will have the opportunity to buy – and in some cases sell – additional annual leave every year.

Family Support

We offer parental advice and support, including maternity, parental, paternity leave and flexible working.  We offer an on-site nursery at our Central and Wythenshawe site and can help sign-post you to family support, holiday clubs and financial support available.
