Graduates urged to sign up for employment fair

Graduates are being urged to register for an employment fair aimed at attracting them to stay on or return to the Isle of Man.

The Isle of Man Graduate Fair, hosted by Locate Isle of Man, will take place at Woodbourne House in the middle of the 2019 Easter university break, on Wednesday, April 17th.

The fair, which will be attended by many Island businesses who offer graduate recruitment, aims to inform current students about the huge number of opportunities available on their own doorstep.

Enterprise Minister Laurence Skelly says: "Our economy is in a strong position and, with further growth projected across a number of sectors, it is vitally important that we fill vacancies to support this growth.

"By promoting the return of our Manx educated students we encourage them to bring back new skills, new ideas and new ways of thinking to our Island.

"We have unrivalled quality of life in the Isle of Man thanks to our short commute times, work-life balance and stunning Island setting, but the strength of our offering is so much more than this.

"The volume and breadth of career opportunities available means that there are fantastic prospects for job seekers."

A recent survey found that 1 in 3 of the Island’s youngest employees aged 18 – 29, have been promoted within the past 12 months, indicating that the Island’s close community and established business networks could hold opportunity for speedier career progression.

The fair is suitable for anyone studying at degree or postgraduate level, recent graduates looking for their next career move and final year school students.

Registration is free – more information is available via
