Develop your skills

Join our student workforce and develop skills for your future career.

Whether you're looking to volunteer at a major sporting event, want some part-time paid work or are looking for that dream placement to prepare you for the working world, we have lots to offer.

Gaining experience in the sport industry will help you to develop essential skills and experience, putting you in a fantastic position for future jobs, whatever your career aspirations. Many students who have worked with us have gone on to have successful careers in industries such as teaching, marketing, media, design, coaching, sport development and more.

You don’t need to be studying a sports related course to work with us, or even be sporty yourself – we welcome passionate and creative students from all faculties who feel they can make a positive contribution to sport and physical activity at Manchester Met.
