A dynamic and exciting tech career in the Isle of Man
Prior to moving, it was difficult to imagine how many opportunities there would be on an Island of this size - particularly within the technology sector. However, I’ve been blown away at how fast the industry is growing here and how dynamic and innovative it is.
In the last four years I have personally experienced career growth in this space and believe there are many more exciting opportunities to come. I am proud to work at Riela Cyber, an Island-based Security Operations Centre with global ultra-high net worth clients. Every day is full of exciting new challenges, and the dynamic nature of working within cyber security constantly keeps my mind curious.
Since joining the organisation I’ve been given the opportunity to speak at numerous technology exhibitions. A career highlight was hosting a live cyber-attack demo at the 2021 Isle of Man annual CYBERISLE conference - the first of its kind on the Island.
A quirky place – full of surprises!
If I was to give one piece of advice to potential relocators it would be to research the different locations across the Island before deciding where to live. Each town and village are unique – which is pretty special for an Island of this size. Each with their own benefits (and quirks) gives them their own identity.
Another thing is the endearing Manx superstitions! From greeting fairies to referring to rodents as longtails, these quirky traditions only add to the Island’s unique and wonderful charm!
