The Isle of Man is a place of opportunity when it comes to choosing a career. That’s what I learned after pursuing a couple of different career paths before finding the right one. I joined Equiom in September 2014 after finishing a course in Hospitality and Catering at the Isle of Man College, which I completed at Distinction level. After beginning work in the hospitality industry, although I could see the promise it has locally as a sector, I decided this was not the career for me, and as a person who loves a challenge and is always keen to learn new things, I applied for a job at Equiom. I had been advised from the outset that there were ongoing opportunities for progression, and after being promoted to an Administrator in September 2015, and seeing so many of my colleagues progressing in their areas, I am confident that this is the case. I am privileged to work alongside so many talented people. Recruiting local talent is important to Equiom and as part of its growth strategy, Equiom seeks to train and develop people who are already here on the Island. The Global CEO (Sheila Dean) feels it is important for sustainability and supporting the local economy in which we thrive.
