CityCo strives to make Manchester city centre a better place to work, visit and live. We all want Manchester to be a thriving, competitive and sustainable international city. At CityCo, we connect businesses with public agencies, bringing together the people, ideas and projects that make great things happen.
CityCo is your city centre management company. It is an independent membership organisation.

We help businesses shape what happens here, expand activities and connect with the right people at the right time. Read about how you can benefit from membership.
CityCo manages Manchester’s first Business Improvement District, the Heart of Manchester BID. Running for 5 years, the BID is an opportunity to build on our successes, energy and optimism to make Manchester as successful as we know it can be.
The business plan has been led by city centre retailers and focuses on delivering promotional and customer service initiatives such as our Where to Go guide book, City Hosts, Chinese New Year celebrations, Student shopping nights, MCR Retail Awards and Manchester’s summer garden festival Dig the City. Take a look at the 2014/15 Annual Report here.
This festival’s Year of the Monkey design has helped cement a now popular and identifiable brand which is unique to Manchester’s festivities.
CityCo is looking to recruit a new officer who will work with our Operations team to develop projects that will enhance the experience of the city centre for businesses, workers and visitors.
