  • We are proud to be a diverse employer and welcome candidates from all backgrounds.

About us:

Every year, Manchester Airport connects over 28 million passengers with more than 200 destinations across the globe. As the third largest airport in the UK, Manchester is also in the top 20 airports in Europe. Part of the largest UK owned airport operator group, MAG, Manchester Airport supports over 19,000 jobs onsite and generates around £7.75bn each year for the region.

In 2021, Manchester Airport marked a major milestone in its 83-year history when we opened the iconic Terminal Two extension, the centrepiece of our £1bn transformation programme. We still have a few years of further construction work to go, but once completed Manchester Airport will be a facility which competes on a world stage!

We’re all here on a journey ourselves, striving every day to help make air travel smoother, more seamless, connecting more people and goods with the world. As a team, we recognise the importance of what we do, supporting one another along the way. Together, we are the Journey Makers.

The Role:

Working at Manchester Airport will provide an exciting opportunity for any high performing Project Manager (PM) to work in a busy, diverse and challenging environment. Working in the Capital Delivery Team, our core function and focus is to deliver the Capital Plan safely, on time and within budget. Alongside our Senior PMs you will work diligently with multiple stakeholders to provide new or replaced assets to support the operational needs of the business.

As part of the team, you will be working on our many construction projects across Manchester Airport, this will cover terminals, airfields and other existing infrastructure. You will plan, prioritise and manage multiple projects, ensuring delivery as promised. Management of our contractors is also a key part of the role. You will also have some accountability for the annual CAPEX spend, as well as individual budgets of £1 to 5 million.


As a Project Manager you will have proven experience of project development, from the explore stage through to handover, as well as knowledge of large and small greenfield and brownfield project delivery in mature assets. Experience managing 3rd party approvals is essential for this role, as well as proven commercial acumen and the ability to contribute to building and presenting a credible CAPEX business case. Experience within a construction environment is also desirable.

What can we offer in return?

Great benefits as you would expect from a business the size of MAG – in the shape of a competitive salary and benefits package including 6% company contribution pension, 24 days holidays plus bank holidays, free parking, subsidised public transport and a huge range of company discounts.
