Fabulous scenery, enchanting glens, miles of quiet beaches and medieval castles are just some of the features that attract both visitors and settlers to the Isle of Man. The island can also offer professionals challenging and interesting work, as well as that much sought after quality of life.
Located in the centre of the British Isles, in the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man is 33 miles (52 kilometres) long and 13 miles (22 kilometres) wide. The island’s population is 76,300. The island is accessible by air and sea from the British and Irish mainland.
The island is an internally self-governing dependent territory of the Crown that is not part of the United Kingdom. The 1000 year old Parliament makes its own laws and oversees all internal administration, fiscal and social policies. In turn this means that all tax is controlled and is positioned at a favourable banding for corporate and personal investors.
Living and working in the Isle of Man
Many large organisations and smaller boutique firms exist in the Isle of Man and as a result the island offers its professionals the opportunity to work in smaller teams than they are used to and therefore become integral to the business they join. They will also work closely with their clients in an environment where they will be treated as a valued member of the team. Due to the size of the island, commuting distances are negligible which mean there is more time to enjoy outside work pursuits. The island has a thriving social community and it is easy to make friends in a place where there are so many like minded people keen on socialising and also their careers.
Salaries are uniformly high and with the favourable tax position. UK professionals can in some cases be 30% better off in real terms. Relocation expenses and temporary accommodation and transport are also included as standard in most packages.
