Employers in Manchester that recruit Computer Scientists

This page (Shortcut url git.io/manc part of git.io/mycv) lists organisations in (and around) Manchester that employ Computer Science students, either before or after graduation. This is a partial list of what some people call the Northern Powerhouse. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but will give you a quick flavour of employers in the North West. See for example The top 100 tech companies in Greater Manchester 2017, as judged by the Manchester Evening News.

Not Just London

You don't have to move to London to find top employers, there are plenty located here in the North West if you'd like to stick around after you graduate. It is often argued that Manchester offers a better quality of life than London we couldn't possible comment other than to say its horses for courses. The North West Tech Community calendar @technwuk, provides a window on (and networking opportunities with) many of employers based in the North West techw.uk if you want to find out more.

If you are interested in more Manchester based employers, another place you can look is Manchester Digital (MD) manchesterdigital.com. MD is an independent trade association for digital businesses (many in advertising & marketing) in the North West of England. Student membership of @mcrdig is free (normally £40 for individual membership) and they advertise jobs at jobs.manchesterdigital.com

If you are a Manchester based employer who isn't listed here, but would like to be, raise an issue or submit a pull request. The document source is written in markdown, and I welcome constructive feedback on it.

*GCHQ opened a new office in Manchester in 2015 but they are not telling anyone where it is. Top secret, see manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/fancy-being-real-life-spy-gchq-8441799
