Free exhibitor registration now open for businesses for the 2024 Isle of Man Graduate Fair

30 October 2023

The Isle of Man Graduate and Young Professional Fair which provides businesses with a platform to meet some of the best upcoming talent from across the Isle of Man and the UK, will return on 27 March 2024 at the Comis Golf Club in Santon.

The event aims to highlight the diversity of employment opportunities available in the Isle of Man for those ready to take their first or next employment steps, including individuals considering returning or relocating to the Island, as well as those studying locally.

This year’s event saw over 60 businesses and 300 young people in attendance, where they were given access to a mix of inspiring panel sessions, career-ready workshops and the opportunity to meet business representatives from a wide range of industry sectors, including tech, finance and professional services, manufacturing and engineering, construction, biotech, hospitality and healthcare, as well as a number of the Island’s recruitment agencies.

To date, over 20 hires have been made as a direct result of businesses meeting attendees at the event, and we continue to see interest with 244 graduates applying for vacancies in the healthcare and education sectors from the UK through Target Connects, the UK’s most popular graduate jobs and advice platform for university students*, which is used by Locate to raise awareness of skills and career opportunities in the Isle of Man.

Ann Corlett MHK, Political Member for Locate Isle of Man, said:

‘The Graduate Fair stands out as a highlight in the calendar for young people moving towards and taking next steps in the world of work, and showcases the diverse industries and career pathways available in the Isle of Man. Feedback from industry continues to indicate that attracting and retaining skills to ensure our businesses are able to fill key vacancies, is key to ensuring the long-term sustainability of our economy, a key ambition of the Island Plan. Events such as the Graduate Fair provide a platform for businesses to demonstrate the benefits that living and working in the Island can offer young professionals.’
