So what’s it like actually living and working on the Isle of Man? On first impressions, a sprawling metropolis the island is not but dig a little deeper and you will find there is plenty going on! The Isle of Man offers residents a unique way of life combined with some breathtaking scenery, picturesque sea side towns and villages and some quirky traditions such as the Horse & Electric Trams and Steam Trains that remain active modes of transport! This traditional “olde worlde” environment sits in harmony alongside fast paced industry such as the Finance, eGaming and eBusiness sectors where the Isle of Man continues to push the boundaries on a global scale.
eGaming is arguably the fastest growing industry on the island and is now playing a major part in the local economy. There are over 1,000 people now employed within the Isle of Man eGaming sector and it has attracted people from around the world to locate to the Isle of Man helping to further boost the islands economy.
Away from the office, the island caters very well for a range of outdoor pursuits such as Cycling, Walking and Golf or more adventurous sports like Kayaking and Abseiling! There is an active social scene on the island with the summer months and weekends being the busiest time for those who like to party “Isle of Man” style! On the entertainment front, the Quay area in Douglas has undergone a major transformation in recent years with a growing number of quality bars and restaurant springing up. There are also plenty of hotels to choose from in central Douglas with many catering for the business traveler.
The quality of life on the island is high, crime is low and when the sun is shining there are not many places that can rival the beauty of the Manx landscape. This neatly bring us onto the weather on the Isle of Man which is always a hot topic of conversation amongst the locals. The climate can be best described as mixed. It’s rarely too hot in summer, not often too cold in winter but yes, the wind can really blow, the mist can roll in from the sea and the rain can on occasion fall horizontally!
