Manchester employees


The Manchester office is home to about 45 staff members from a diverse mix of Ricardo teams, including Infrastructure & Utilities, Policy, Strategy & Economics, Technologies, Tools & Solutions, and Environmental Evidence & Data.

The new office was opened in December 2017 and provides a bright and spacious work-space, with a fitted kitchen and coffee machine, lockers for staff, a secure bike shed and showers.

Since the new office has opened, a social group and a charity group have been formed, with plans being drawn up for activities such as nights out in Manchester.  We support a local charity each year with fundraising activities like bake sales and dress down Fridays.  Staff have also supported other charities by completing fun-runs and tough-mudder races.

The office is accessible by car from all Manchester suburbs and surrounding towns.  Permits are available to park onsite. Our postcode is M15 6GZ.
Buses are the most convenient form of public transport to the office. Bus services run frequently down Oxford Road (which is a 3 minute walk from the office) and other services run along Boundary Lane and Lloyd Street North. To find the best public transport route, the TFGM Journey Planner is a useful tool.

There is a regular and frequent tram service throughout many parts of Manchester. The closest tram stops are in St. Peter’s Square (20 minute walk) and Deansgate (25 minute walk).
Trains into Manchester from surrounding towns and suburbs run regularly. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the office from Manchester Oxford Road station, and about 30 minutes from Piccadilly. Both stations are only a short bus ride on any of the services listed above.

Site information

Based in Manchester Science Park (MSP), the local businesses comprise many scientific and environmental companies. We are also neighbours to the University of Manchester. 

Since the Manchester office is still relatively new, there are lots of opportunities to join new clubs and form groups with other employees.

We are based in the Bright Building which, as the flagship for MSP, regularly hosts corporate and charity events. There is a café on the public ground floor of the building and, as tenants, we are often given vouchers to use there.  The office is within walking distance of an Asda supermarket and the busy Oxford Road, which has a range of places to eat and drink, as well as lots of shops.
