greater.jobs really is the place to look for public sector roles in Greater Manchester and beyond... we are home to every job vacancy for 12 local authorities and key services in the North West!
Schools, colleges and academies advertise their vacancies here. As do the NHS, Transport for Greater Manchester, third sector organisations and other customers from outside the region.
You can make sure you don’t miss that ideal job – by setting up job alerts, you will be automatically notified when an opportunity that fits your criteria is advertised.
You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for regular updates.
Over recent years, the public sector has changed dramatically. Councils work together more now and so do other public sector organisations. Devolution is happening too, which will bring local authorities and partners like the NHS even closer. We needed to reflect those changes on our website. We needed to go further. And we did, with a simpler application process, and real insight into our regions and organisations.
Standing out from the crowd
All our boroughs are unique, with their own heritage, culture, landmarks and scenery. Each location page is different to express this individuality, with personalised pages and bespoke illustrations showing what it is that makes our boroughs special.
From the golden beaches of Blackpool and Fylde to the rich industrial heritage of Oldham, Greater Manchester and the North West really does have a lot to offer. Home to more than 2.7 million people and with an economy bigger than that of Wales or Northern Ireland, our vision is to make our regions even better.
As well as making our website visually appealing, we also realise the importance of creating a seamless, enjoyable, and user friendly candidate experience. Our partners each have their own application site which also include bespoke illustrations, to maintain the individuality we're keen to express.
We aim to ensure that advertisements are informative but concise, providing a brief description of what roles involve and what the successful candidate would be expected to achieve.
We've achieved incredible site statistics since our launch in December 2016. Within a year our pages had more than 16 million page views! This is not only because of the hundreds of exciting opportunities available at one time, but also because of the interesting and informative blog and story content pages we publish which provide a real taste of what it’s like to work in our regions and for our partner organisations.
Since our launch we've been awarded three national awards including 'The Role of HR Innovation' award at the PPMA Awards 2017 and the 'Best Niche Job Board' at the Onrec Awards 2017. We also won 'Best Illustration/Photography' in the craft category at the Recruitment Business Awards 2017.
