Careers

Greater Manchester has the UK’s largest regional economy outside London, and a diverse population of over 2.7 million people.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is a not-for-profit organisation responsible for co-ordinating public transport and other types of travel – like driving, cycling and walking – throughout the ten council areas of the region.

Greater Manchester's position at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse, and devolution of new powers gives transport a vital role in the growth and prosperity of the region. Our employees are key to us succeeding in that role.
