The past month has seen a number of unprecedented developments for the world, and for the Isle of Man. On Monday 16th March it was announced that the Isle of Man Government has brought in emergency measures to protect the Isle of Man and its residents in light of the global coronavirus pandemic. In line with these measures, we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Isle of Man Graduate Fair. We appreciate your continued support of our event.

Are you a graduate, to-be-graduate or student who wants to find a genuine connection with a business to build your career future together?

The Grad Fair is back for 2020 and we are on the lookout for Graduates and students who are ready to sail into the summer with a fantastic job opportunity in hand.

  • "We were impressed with the initiative, the format and the organisation. From speaking with the graduates attending it is clear that there is a desire from some to move back to the Island following their degrees. The fair helps them to identify the opportunities available and puts them in touch with employers such as ourselves who see graduates as a way, with appropriate further training and coaching, of filling the management and technical vacancies that we have.”
