Locate's Talent Portal
The Talent Portal is free to use for organisations, recruitment agencies and individual workers and seeks to support businesses who are looking to recruit and relocate potential employees. It has been developed in response to industry feedback highlighting that certain roles - particularly those within the digital sector, healthcare and qualified finance specialisms - remain difficult to recruit in the Isle of Man.
Building on the success of the locate.im website and the opportunities the Island has to offer, it provides the ability for people interested in moving to the Island to register in one place, detailing their skills and interest area. Whilst many individuals may choose to continue to register directly with multiple employers or recruitment agencies, a single registration process aims to simplify the end user process and increase Locate Isle of Man’s reach across the globe in specialised areas.
Local businesses and organisations who register on the portal will have the opportunity to browse a list of registered candidates with skills matched to their specific vacancies. They can also message them directly to make contact and discuss their job opportunity further. Similarly, Isle of Man recruitment agencies are able to register their agency on the Talent Portal and access a list of skilled candidates who are looking for employment in the Island.
Individuals who are interested in finding employment in the Isle of Man can populate their profile with skills which will be used to match them automatically with potential job opportunities.
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges to the Isle of Man’s economy, and ensuring that we have access to the right skills for continued resilience and growth is key to the Island’s future recovery.
