An event designed to lure more educated young people to the Isle of Man has attracted more than 30 organisations to take part.

They have signed up to exhibit at the Isle of Man Graduate Fair, which will take place at the end of the 2020 Easter university break, on Friday, April 17.

The event aims to highlight the number of employment opportunities available for people who are considering a return to the island after studying.

The list of organisation exhibitors includes law firm Cains, Canada Life, Deloitte, Derivco, Equiom, KPMG, Manx Telecom, PwC, SMP Partners, Utmost Wealth Solutions and Zurich.

Attendees will be able to meet representatives of the organisations on the day to discuss the career opportunities available and to receive advice on starting a career in their particular sector.

The line-up also includes a selection of the island’s recruitment agencies, who will advise them on finding employment in the island as well as supporting them with the overall process of applying.

Minister for Enterprise Laurence Skelly MHK said: ’Encouraging our Manx educated students to return to the island and fill vacancies is key to supporting the economy’s projected growth across a number of sectors, as they will be able to bring new skills and ways of thinking to our island.

’Short commute times, a high quality of life and enviable work-life balance makes the Isle of Man the natural choice for returning students to start a successful, sustainable career.

’I am pleased the event has gained the support from so many of our island’s employers and recruitment agencies, showing our business community’s commitment to growing our active workforce and their appetite to support young, returning graduates looking to start their careers.’

The Isle of Man Graduate Fair is suitable for anyone studying at degree or postgraduate level in the Isle of Man, the UK or further afield, recent graduates looking for their next career move, or final year school students who intend to head straight into employment.

Registration is free and more information can be found at:

The organisers are still hoping to entice more businesses to take part.

The Graduate Fair is being hosted by Locate Isle of Man, a government initiative designed to promote the Isle of Man as a place to live, work and do business.
